Front Lip Help!

Hey guys, I don't post much, but I need some help here. Here's a picture of my car this afternoon. Just had the wheels put on today and was feeling pretty good about my car.

It's been warm here in the evenings so I was driving up the 55 North in Orange County with my windows down when I suddenly heard a loud tapping sound coming from the front of my car...

Yes, it was the distinct sound of my front lip tapping and scraping the freeway going at about 70 mph. So here's a picture of the front lip when I got home. Destroyed!!! Luckily, there was only minimal paint damage to my bumper.

I really like the look of the Arkym lip, but it seems like there's a little bit of a fitment problem. It's stayed on pretty good for about two or three months with no problems aside from the small gap around the two corners. But recently, Iíve noticed the gaps getting slightly bigger. I had it on with the screws on the bottom and 3m on the top side.

So do you guys think this is fixable? Is it even worth it to get it fixed or should I start shopping for a new lip? Any suggestions on any other lips and where I can get a good deal in So Cal? Pics would be great, especially on any AW colored F10s. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!
