Is this lip kit a good deal?

I'm pretty sure this is an awesome deal, but not sure how much it would cost to paint it.

I'm pretty sure that is not JDM polyurethane, I bet judging by the price its fiberglass and will need some body work, meaning it will be unfinished and might need a little alteration any skilled body shop will be able to do it up and look nice , but I am afraid unless you know someone that does this and can hook you up your going to pay a pretty penny to have it done. But keep in mind its fiberglass so first entrance curb you smack the lip it is going to come to pieces, break, crack, etc. Polyurethane gives check this place out Honda Prelude Exterior Accessories - Genuine Factory Honda Accessories

its a bit $$$ but it comes painted and direct fit plus installation instructions and hardware the other kit has none of this. So for about the same price you can have this or have the replica if you add the labor for having it installed and finished and painted, if you have to paint the OEM ones all they have to do is scruff the paint then respray it the color you want and clear. It will cost much less that having finish work and prep plus primer and paint and clear.

^ ya guess it sounded good to me b/c i just bought a lip kit but my car needs painted so im going to just get the kit painted at the same time so its not a big deal for me.having it prepainted would be very nice tho.

I wish I could get it from there >_> (curse their no shipping to canada)

but iirc I saw an ad almost the same from toronto for the same price and they said they made their lips out of ABS Plastic (talking about the link from the OP for not the honda accessories)
