dude you can get the official jdm lip, pre-painted in the factory colors for 365.57 from japanparts.com here's the link http://www.japanparts.com/db/partslist.php
It's the fifth item down.

I'm sure painting the replica is atleast going to cost you 100+, so right there your spent 280+ for a replica part, with "replica" fitment qualities. Why not just dish out the 365, have it pre-painted in your color, know that it's an actual JDM piece, and have A+ quality fitment?

^yup. Most places will charge you about $100-200 for paint, so just get the OEM JDM lip and you will be golden.

Renick kinda pissed me off last week. I had ordered a pink stars badge weeks before and having not received it, I called. "Oh yeah, here it is, hmmm...looks like that's out of stock and we should be getting more next month sometime...."

....and at what point were you going to notify me of this delay? I cancelled it in disgust but I'll probably end up ordering it again from them because I think I've only seen one other place that carries them.

On the lip, I just put the JDM one on that I got from Japanparts. By itself, I think it was going to be about $630 shipped but I ordered fogs, bumper beam, and a roof rack, too. It is very nice and install was quite easy, fit perfect. Since it comes up and covers a good area of the bumper, I really don't think it would be a good piece to have to deal with imperfections in fit. With a lip that just snaps under the car, it probably wouldn't be that tough to make some adjustments but this type you need to fit just right.

Also, to my surprise, you lose no vertical ground clearance vs. the stock splitters (except, obviously, in between them.) However, it does protrude about 3 inches further forward so functionally speaking, you certainly lose clearance when attacking inclines.

Does anyone have data on this front lip? I'm trying to see if it's comparable to the V-limited in terms lift reduction.
