    Correct! However, make sure to degrease it properly! This was the first time I ever used it as well.

    Here's a couple of pictures

    I used some SEM black trim paint, holds up fine!

    You'll want to get new clips. The clips come in either black or white so. I have a white car so I got white clips. Here is the link to the realOEM page: https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/sho...diagId=51_0652
    Awesome..thanks. Yeah I tried looking for the black version...can't find it....grrr.

    Here is an option. I have used Monstaliner on air dams for a Spec E30. Here are 2 that I sprayed with a cheap schutz gun. This stuff is very durable. Monstaliner comes in 45 colors.

    Please note that the lip comes in black OR primer (different part numbers). If you want it black, just buy the black version.
    Oh didn’t know that. Is the black a matte finish or gloss and is it actually painted black?

    IS Front Lip..paint options?

    Those of you who have the IS front lip, did you paint it yourselves? Did you use a different kind of paint to keep it from getting beat up, chipped, etc? Thinking of just painting mine black to hide all of the marks it will get get from the road. I'm wondering if I should use some sort of wrinkle paint or maybe clear bra? What have you guys done that's worked?
Working...
