RKP F10 M5 front lip



To this date, composites manufacturer RKP has specialized in obtaining the unobtainable- exterior components from the BMW M3 GTS, ensured by BMW to be impossible to purchase directly were faithfully reproduced in the highest level of quality.

Now, RKP takes the next step forward in their evolution as a composites manufacturer.

The RKP front lip for the F10 M5 attempts to go above and beyond the standard fare of aerodynamic parts available for BMW M cars. Where most front lips simply extend and lower the front of the car, the RKP lip adapts the original BMW design, and attempts to expand on what’s already there.

Instead of simply jutting straight from the front bumper, the RKP F10 M5 front lip is designed with BMW’s own design language in mind, integrating the crisp lines of the front bumper into the lip’s surface. The body lines molded into the front bumper of the M5 are retained in the outside surfaces of the front lip, and move and flow into the front lip’s outer surface to create a piece that is visually cohesive.

This F10 M5 front lip fits perfectly against the M5’s front bumper, leaving essentially no gap after the lip is installed. Installation is accomplished using 3M adhesive tape, and fasteners that are already present in the front bumper. No drilling is required to install the front lip, and no new hardware is used. The RKP front lip does not lower the M5’s ride height as it does not extend past the lowest point of the front bumper.

Each RKP front lip for the F10 M5 is built from 100% carbon fiber, and is available in plain or twill weave. Extreme care is taken to ensure that each lip has an excellent weave pattern and alignment, with no misweave or flaws.

























2x2 on the left and 1x1 on the right


1x1 on the top and 2x2 on the bottom

Impressive! Quality looks impeccable as seems to be the case with RKP. The lip design has that "M3 CRT" look to it. Very nice!

I like this lip but I think the one you guys had earlier looks better on the M5. I like the subtle appearance of it. I think its the Revinora one right?

We did also but the quality and fitments were lacking. My body tech spent 2-3 hours on the Revinora lip just to make it look good for the install.
