Exclamation Introducing the TRE Performance Front Lip for OG BMW M2.

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com


From the moment the original BMW M2 premiered back in 2016 it became a halo for the BMW M brand, despite it being the “entry-level” model. Its brutish front and rear arches combined with the more aggressive bumpers ensured that it wasn’t to be mistaken for a normal 2 Series.

Not only did it have the coupé looks, it had the performance to back it up, plus 4 useable seats. This made it a compelling all-round package with almost no direct competitor on the market.

Fast-forward to 2018 and the M2 was given a mild facelift with the M2 Competition. A new front fascia and the S55 drivetrain from the F8x M3/M4. With this update, BMW M Performance also introduced a whole host of new aero parts. Chief among which was the M Performance Front Lip. It’s arguably one of BMWs most widely sort-after M Performance mods to-date and was not compatible with the original BMW M2.

Enter, TRE “T-R-E”.

As an active member of the Bimmerpost community, we’re always catching up with customers and fellow car-enthusiasts; hunting for the latest news, leaks and insights. By chance, we stumbled upon a thread of M2 owners that had been on the search for the M Performance lip for the N55 M2. They’d been in contact with a number of vendors but with little success.

It was then that our development began and the TRE Front Lip Project for the N55 M2 commenced.



Development went on for months to ensure the fitment and quality matched/exceeded that is synonymous with the rest of the TRE product range.

Despite COVID playing its hand and a few other setbacks, we are incredibly proud to be launching this lip in July 2020.

Specifications:
  • Designed and developed in United Kingdom by the AUTOID team
  • Pre-preg Carbon Fibre (The lightest, strongest and most durable variant of carbon fibre)
  • OEM Fit and Finish, retaining existing bolts and screws. Plus Additional Support Bolts for increased security.
  • OEM+ Design, preserving the same design language used in the M Performance range of accessories.
  • Two-year warranty

Order Now

Please note that we're unable to match demand at the moment. Unless stated “In-stock”, we expect orders to take up to 4 weeks to fulfil, though we will always aim to better this.

Take a look at our photos and drop us a comment on your thoughts!

Special thank you to Plush Automotive for lending us their one of a kind BMW M2. It features an RKP roof, Edison Composites Hood, M2C Seats and huge number of other mods. In fact, I'm confident in saying its one of the most heavily modified M2s on the road in Europe.

Been following the original thread for this for a while. This turned out amazing guys! This is definitely the best front splitter for the OG M2. Hopefully I'll be ordering one in the near future!

Excellent attention to detail - flows with the front bumper flawlessly. If you guys ever venture out into the F12/13/F06 world, sign me up for a front lip!

Love the lip.
Hate when people paint the support tubes behind the grilles. Super tacky.

It's an OG, not a comp. He added M4 seats and some m style mirror caps. Front bumper is from the N55 car.

I've not had a chance to install it yet but it's a super nice center piece on my dining room table at the moment! Very happy with the quality.

I am afraid to install a front lip with the speed bumps in Seattle. Otherwise I would be tempted.
