The Real Deal??

im sure others of you know about lips on ebay.
but we dont want fiberglass!!!!!!!

for some time now, these lips have been on ebay and theres lots of em. although i can only find front lips. these claim to be polyurethane. are they as good as the HONDA OEM ones?

HONDA PRELUDE 97 98 99 00 01 BODY KIT LIP KIT FRONT LIP:eBay Motors (item 380185933029 end time Dec-10-09 13:06:13 PST)

heres what i know of the original Honda lip.
(I had a full Honda lip kit before i got into accident)

*fitment/easy installation w/screws
*durability/long lasting
*light and flexible
*no other material comes close!!
*looks awesome!!

please tell me what u guys think
its priced at $120
while the original is $170
Honda Prelude Exterior Accessories - Genuine Factory Honda Accessories

is it worth saving $50 for going ebay ???!!!!!

Re: The Real Deal??

if it truly is polyurethane, than yes that is an extremely durable, flexible, and well paintable material that is a very good material for front lips.
the bad news is you won't know if it really is PU until you receive it.

Re: The Real Deal??

You can always ask the eBay seller and if it is not what they say it is, after you asked, you can easily return!!! eBay is good for that...they are all about the buyer especially if the seller is BS'ing.

Re: The Real Deal??

hey man i bought one of these from the same seller.. it's legit.. fitment is perfect, using double sided 3m tape around the corner.. if you want a flawless fitment.. it screws right in.. fits really well. and it's really Polyurethane.. i was extremly satisfied with fitment.

honestly i got mine for 120 shipped and i was shocked at how well it fit..

so i highly recommend buying this as a lower priced alternative.

Re: The Real Deal??

id say its only a good deal if you paint and install it yourself. because what you'd pay for a shop to do either it probably cost more
