Default Carbon splitter for m235i

Can anyone recommend a decent eBay seller for a carbon splitter?

Donít want to spend a fortune and I really donít like the m performance splitter.

Thanks

I didnít buy it in the end. By the time I had bought the carbon bits I wanted, wheels and exhaust. It would have been an expensive car.

It was the low price that attracted me to the car initially.

Golf R or a RS3 would suit me better tbh and well specíd ones look good standard.

Why bmw chose those wheels for the m135i/m235i Iíll never know. They really need the carbon bits to look good too.

They really are the worst standard alloys Iíve seen.

I think the fl m135i looks better than the standard 235i. The m235i looks tame without the carbon bits.

Both great cars.

Agreed, and what an aweful colour with mirrors to match on my white one
Having said that the overall package is very nice and I have bought 666 wheels in satin black for mine, to match the MP splitter.

Couldn’t agree more. The car I looked at was white. The silver mirrors and wheels made it look feminine.

By the time you add carbon mirrors, diffuser, splitter, spoiler, mpe and wheels. You’re not that far off a m4.

I did like it though. If it had hk and pro nav I’d have been tempted.

I’ve decided to go for a new golf R. Big discount, virtual cockpit and akra exhaust swung it.

They hold their value well too. A 2014 is only £10k cheaper than a new one.
