You might want to begin by making sure your replica can even mount a lip. From my understanding some bumpers don't take well to mounting lips.

Some replica M3 bumpers can have aftermarket lips mounted to them, others cannot. I'm sure you will be fine, but it would suck to buy something that won't work with what you have. Ask the vendor you bought the bumper from if the bumper you own can mount a lip.
