BMW OEM Carbon Fiber Splitters

I haven't seen anyone with the OEM carbon fiber splitters for Z4 except for the DSB brochure. I looked all over the net for an alpine white or lighter color Z4 to compare how they stand out. The one on the brochure is hardly noticeable. I guess these BMW OEM add ons are not that great since no one seems to have them or just tend to go with other aftermarket brand front spoilers? If anyone has a picture besides the brochure shot, could you please post? I am contemplating on ordering 3D Design rear diffuser and considering whether the BMW OEM splitters match nicely for my car since they are both carbon fiber.

For the money, they seem like a waste.

A full width CF splitter would be nice.

Looking forward to more pics. Can't really tell if I like them from this angle. Are those really carbon fiber? They look extremely dark. Thanks again!

they are carbon fiber. the lighting is directly overhead in the garage, so they get lost in the shadow.

It looks OK for me. Not sure yet. I think it has to grow on me.

Looks good but I'd still prefer a full width splitter, especially for +$800 samolies.
