Re: need help with lip kit choice plz advise

i actually have some lips from that seller. they are located in toronto at jane and finch. be prepared to do some work if you get them. any questions just ask. they are flexible but rigid as they are fiberglass. will need a full sand before primer. fit is decent but no predrilled holes or coutersinks or even markings for holes. also oem and name brand comes with tabs and such for installation. these do not and will require you to run braces for everything to sub for tabs.

Re: need help with lip kit choice plz advise

What color is your lude?

If it's black I would get the full mugen rep kit.. For some reason I think it looks sexy on a black lude.. But you have to be careful because it's fiberglass.. And it looks more sexier the lower it is IMO .. That will prob be cheaper than the lip kit but you will have to paint them

Re: need help with lip kit choice plz advise

The wings west kit is the one that looks a lot like OEM I believe. Personally if I were going to spend money on a non OEM kit it wouldn't be an OEM look a like. That mugen replica is the sh*t
