bumper
 
i was looking into getting a front lip for my 07 legacy and the only ones i can find say they fit jdm bumpers. my question is are the North American model bumpers the same, and will the lip fit my bumper? thanks in advance for the input!

NA bumpers are different from JDM, and there are plenty of options for 05-07 lips.

Cheapest route is to use a WRX lip off ebay for $60-$80 and do a little bit of modification to the ends.

Do you have a link of what you're trying to get?

That gap in the middle would bug the shit outta me.

I beg to differ.... I also bought one if these lips and when I mounted it I took it right back off. Just depends on how picky you are.

Well that's a small space nothing major, at least IMO. I would buy a flush fit lip but can't justify spending $200 for one.

Like I said....it all depends on how picky you are. If I put something on my car and something is off, thats all my eye ever notices therefore I would not be happy with it. But thats me and all that matters is your happy.

Yea your right. It's all about personal taste

This is me to a "T" ... any flaw and it's all I see when I look at my car. I went with a more expensive lip because the fit is excellent.

the wrx lip would be a better fit than the jdmlegacy one. andno offense to the people that have done it thisway, but ike mwm said if the gaps were there that would be aall i noticed. theres nothing that wouldfit better. id do the ez lip but that plastic weather strip is kinda flimsy to me.

I've had the homedepot lip, ie garage door weather strip, the ebay wrx lip and now a central composites lip, thanks again catalyst! Much happier with a lip that actually fits the bumper, well that and its sexy carbon fiber and rare :).

From this point on I don't think I'll go back to a ebay lip unless someone makes one that fits perfectly. This is only of course if something unspeakable happens to the lip I have now. I'll never do the homedepot lip again.
