BaysonR to make front lip for 05-09 Legacy!
 
Before I begin, I'm out running errands and posting this from my phone. My apologies if my post is all over the place.

I bought a bunch of stuff from them in the past when I had my WRX and have been nothing but pleased with their quality and service. I came across some old emails we exchanged in the past and decided to reach out to them.

This was the exchange between Cliff and I:

We are unloading a container right now, we have a sample lip on 08-09 legacy, not sure if it's for spec b or not. We need to test the lip first.

Please check back with us in a week or two.

Thanks,

Cliff

Thanks,

Cliff

Thanks,

This took place yesterday/late last night. If one of you are able to assist them, let me know and I'll pass along your/Cliff's info. Maybe Rommel could sell his mold? I just want a decent lip option that doesn't cost $200-$300. Hopefully they can pull it off.

Sweet. My buddy had some BaysonR splitters on his M3, they fit and looked great.

PS: I never really got the 06 lip to fit the way I wanted to. Partially because I kept ripping it off, partially because the contour isn't quite right(obviously because its not made for the lgt lol)

I had their s204 lip for 3 years/75k miles and never had it break or crack no matter how many times I smashed it into curbs or snow. :lol:

I also had their replica Mines trunk lip, Chargespeed Bottomline replicaside skirts and other odds and ends. No complaints.

I'd buy one

$200-300?

I paid over $400 for mine :lol: :(

TheDon427 08-25-2012 01:45 PM

That's absurd. Why someone would pay $400+ for something screwed into their bumper, 2" off the pavement is beyond me.

DoctorLGT 08-25-2012 02:22 PM

Am I understanding that price right....60 dollars for a lip? is that a fact or is that an ebay pre-order price lol?

Direct fitment and carbon fiber.

And worth every penny. I have two. One for summer and one for winter that will be painted since there's a flaw in the CF and it will be great for a snow plow. If you haven't seen one in person it may seem pricey, but I can attest to it's fit and finish which is amazing!

the few, the proud

:lol:

If someone made a carbon fiber lip for the 08-09, I would pay the money for it. I had high hopes for the Rav Spec lip, but it doesn't look right on the car.

This would be a nice alternative, and easier on the wallet. :)

I can attest for the amazingness of the central composites lip as well. It makes me tingly all over

shu 08-25-2012 10:54 PM

Had a BaysonR lip on my GR STI ... good stuff, I'd definitely buy one for the Legacy.

mk6933 08-26-2012 12:16 AM

Definitely worth waiting. I want a front lip so bad! Too bad I'm not feeling the RavSpec lip.
