Modify m performance front lip?

Guys with this lip, can you tell if there might be anyway to modify it, so it can be installed with out the two parts upper parts that cover the scoops in the bumper? I really like the look of this lip but not the top part

No need for modification. Simply install and that is it. No need to buy the covers.

Without the splitters, you are left with a sizable gap and you can't fasten correctly under these areas. If you want the m performance style with out the splitters, check out the RKP lip.

If you want the M performance look without splitters go with the Lightweight lip.
I have it on my M3 without splitters

Thanks guys, I like the lightweight but I wanted cf, the rpk looks good, also the 3D. I like both the ones above but I prefer the lightweight if I had to choose as it does not stick out as much as the rpk
