Re: choosing a front lip..

Never seen the first one on a car. The second one as stated above is the P1. I've heard good and bad things about it. Whatever you like, get it. It's just a lip.

Re: choosing a front lip..

IMO #1 is the winner. I've always preferred that look and its made of polyurethane instead of ABS like the 2nd one.

Re: choosing a front lip..

absdynamic makes a p1 front lip out of a really flexible material kinda like polyurethane. you have to ask for it specifically or you will get the cheap hard one.

Re: choosing a front lip..

I'd have togo with the first one ...cuz it has more curves.
The second one just doesn't look right to me :)

Re: choosing a front lip..

For the Type S lip, you are looking in the range of $200-300. On ebay they are around that price range as well.

The Type S lip is perfect if you already have painted sides and rear lips.

You can only really get type-s lips used on ebay. So yeah if you buy one and it's your color, then yes. But it will be used and probablly need fixing and painting.

Re: choosing a front lip..

Does ICB still sell them new? If yes then it will likely come in colour...Japanese colours though.

Re: choosing a front lip..

it depends on what you are planning to do. I would personally choose oem if youre planning to have the sides and rear done too.

but if youre planning to keep the stock sides then i would get the p1. The oem still looks good with stock sides and rear though (and thats what i have now) Im planning on getting the whole kit soon

Technically. That's the OEM side and rear skirts. They were dealer fitted options to the Type S, Si, VTiR, SH and every other Prelude sold. Check out Pooponurhead's members ride thread for images of the fitted full kit.

Also, if you like the GReddy lip but not the lettering in the middle, many have "shaved" the letters by filling them in. Didn't one of the nypoc kids fit that not long ago?
