5th Gen Front Lip(s) - CLOSED NLA

EDIT: Previous content deleted.

Hello everyone!! It looks like we might have a few front lip options soon coming available for the 5th gens. I will be working with the vendor to determine whether or not they are willing to offer a group buy to the forum and are willing to sign up as an approved vendor. I hope to post some pics soon of the lip on my car, it was cold here today and I didn't feel like installing it today.

The pics below are of the test fit with the vendor. Lips are just clamped on for the pictures. The smaller is the S204 Style Lip and the larger is the JDM Agressive Lip. More pics to follow after my install of the S204.

Looks good.

I like the smaller one.

The difference between ordinary and extraordinary... Is that little extra...

I think in this case less is more.

The smaller one looks good by itself. The bigger one does look good as well, but needs some side skirts to go with the whole flow of it.

Really like the second one.

5th Gen needs more mod support.

I personally chose the smaller S204 Style. It is more the look that I wanted, although, I might look into eventually pairing it with a carbon fiber splitter in the future. Pics will follow tomorrow. Can't wait to get it on.

I think the bigger one looks good too, but it is not really my style. I agree that it should be paired with side skirts and I think it is probably more appropriate on a car that has been dropped alot lower. Since my car isn't lowered at all yet, I thought it would just be too much mass for my current stance. And IMO it should be painted body color or a combo of body color and black.

I agree with the sideskirt situation ifgoingwith the more aggressive lip. Thank you for going and doing this, and of course thanks to the guys that took part to make it. I'm pretty excited to see what becomes of the skirts too :D

S204 please. ^_^

the smaller v-limitied style is nice and simple, almost wish it was a bit bigger though.

the larger one, I'm not sure I like. It's too 2013 lower bumper or something, the juts out on either end don't do it for me. I'd like to see a painted version, that may be what's throwing me off.

S204 for me. Some of us have grills in the lower opening. it looks like the JDM aggressive style would be a challenge to mount, if one has a lower grille. The aggressive lip impinges into that lower grill opening...

Any prices? Any date for product release? Will it be necessary to purchase through evilBay, or will direct purchases be possible? What is the method of installation?

Simon and GTEASER: Your efforts are appreciated.

Best.
Byll

Only if it was painted. :)

Both front lips design have similarities with the JDM/EDM ones for the 2.5i bumper.

Below are the front lips (thin and thicker design) for the JDM/EDM 2.5i bumper:

The larger one painted body color WILL be my choice.

Thank you for taking on this project and for making your vehicle available.
