I just installed the new front lip [thanks vitiokas95 :M5thumbs:], removed the time-attacks, and new front grills. Pics aren't the best, but the best for tonight ouich. Enjoy!





This is how it looked before the lip, with time-attacks:

I assume that is made out of fiberglass material correct? I have a carbon black also and was thinking of buying the same front lip and painting it matte black too. What I really wish is someone would offer this lip in abs plastic. Your pics does look good though, thx.

Yeah, I wish it was ABS, but this will do until I find one.

time attack stripes are the red stripes around a circumference of a wheel. i don't know where the term came from but it reminds me of the old Hotwheels cars with the red stripe on the tire.

Your wheels (with no red stripe) make me happy in pant - lip looks good too.

I like that lip, was thinking about getting one.

I think rims look better stripeless

Was that one of the ones off Ebay? I was thinking about one of them for under $100.
I'd like to get a nice carbon one but since my front end grinds on almost every driveway I figure I should just go cheap for know.

Yeah, I bought it off a forum member but it originated from eBay. The CF one is real nice. The non-CF one is definitely a little cheaper. My driveway is quite steep, but didn't scrape. The lip is the same thickness as that little black piece in the last picture I posted on the first post.

Very nice!! Loving your wheels too!! I have the carbon lip. I have a pretty steep driveway, but it doesn't scrape. I have some H&R springs on order so I'm sure I'll get some scraping going on after the install.

damn all of you guys... this place is going to make my girlfriend leave me (oh yeah, I dont have one right now)... That lip is going on the list of things "to do" and those wheels will be added shortly after. I may need to sell a kidney soon.

Do you know which seller it was bought from on ebay? I'd like to purchase it just was too reluctant to since I didn't trust after market brand.

I don't know the eBay seller. When I bought it, I only saw 1 or 2 sellers of the lip with close to 100% feedback, but now looking at eBay, I see multiple sellers [none of which were the ones I initially saw]. I'd say PM member vitiokas95.

looks really nice. I like the spoiler, would make a nice gift for my car for turning 100k miles tonight!

I also liked the wheels with the stripes, but they look very nice without too.

How does the lip attatch? Simple bolt on?

Thanks...I think if I were your car, I'd want that sort of gift ;)

It attaches with 8 total screws. It screws directly into the underside of the bumper. Straight forward install.
