Why doesn't it extent all of the way like the OEM splitter to the sides? I prefer the OEM M Performance one which is what I have because it looks the best vs any aftermarket so far

That or it prioritizes better aero over better cosmetics Just kidding, obviously this is for the same people that mess with suspension geometry for a better "stance".

eh...Nope...
This gives the car a really weird double chin look.
..and no to the black vinyl on the bumper and hood.

Nobody is making a proper splitter with air damming for this car. All the options out there are non functional. This one seems to fail in form, and function. Which is an unexpected twist.

I liked the LW lip for the F8X, but this one is a tad bit obscured by the gloss black lower bumper bits. I think it would show better if those gloss black bits were body colored.

I wouldn't disagree with that. I'm fine with aftermarket solutions if they look better and or provide something meaningful which isn't really the case here.

Lmao. I don't get people that lower their cars. Like what's the point? You're just ruining your car. Idk if people realize that bmw has actual experts that all they do all day is work on suspension and ride quality and calibrating the car so you can actually corner, and there you go buy a stupid kit to lower your car because they didn't get it right.

If it's like the F8x series it's a sticker that comes in the box and you apply it yourself

Correct, decal is included - but optional.

For those commenting on the style path chosen, it is reminiscent to the limited-edition CRT M3 some years back:

No bueno…

If it works well aerodynamically then cool I'm sure the track guys will love it but as far as looks are concerned it looks off.
