need help choosing my front lip. i have two

thanks all for taking the time to look but im really at a loss. i had an oem lip and bought a wwrs lip lip but now that i have it i think i like the oem better and am only leaning toward the ww because i paid for it and want to use it. here are some pics. details would be great in your opinions and please refrain from just saying one or the other without a reason as that wont help me at all. thanks again, really appreciate it.

Re: need help choosing my front lip. i have two

first one looks best w/ the stock sides and rear. the second one is too low unless you have the optional sides and rear as well.

Re: need help choosing my front lip. i have two

Yeah I agree that the first pic looks best with the stock side skirts. I have a similar lip on the front of my car with side skirts. So I would say the second pic if you have the set of mugen side skirts.

Re: need help choosing my front lip. i have two

wait you said you have an oem lip, but none of those are oem..

anyway if you install mugen sides then i would go with the wwrs but if you keep the stock sides i would stay with the p1 lip

Re: need help choosing my front lip. i have two

The first one is NOT and OEM lip, I believe its the ABS plastic P1 lip (just a heads up).
But I use to have WW front and mugen sides and it flowed really well. I say the WW because its more aggressive than the P1, and because I have the WW one and I LOVE it, ORRRRR you could also fill in the holes (if you dont like them) of the WW, I have seen it done and looks pretty dang cool!

Re: need help choosing my front lip. i have two

thanks and i was always under the impression it was an oem. apparently not. unfortunately i find the info on the lip, spoiler and body kits for these to be somewhat confusing at times.

Re: need help choosing my front lip. i have two

It's all good thats what the community is here for to help :) we have many many body kits for our cars, one of the more popular ones is the Mugen Rep kit...that is the only "body kit" for our cars that people like to put on. Mainly people have lip kits (which are usually the better route) haha

Re: need help choosing my front lip. i have two

actually its not for lack of knowledge but the misrepresentation of parts by sellers. according to some i have jdm headlights. which leads me to the whole jdm nonsense. with respect to aftermarket body parts, maybe my lip is a p1 but in two seconds i could find you sellers listing this part as oem,jdm and probbly something else. thanks for pointing it out though guys and whatever it is i do like it better than the ww. i painted em both today and will do some more comparison pics as i found i hard to tell what they would both look like finished. cheers

The second one will be great if you lower the car.. The first one just don't look aggressive enough to me..

Re: need help choosing my front lip. i have two

it is lowered. 1.5 both ends. was thinking of going to 2.25 but with the rims i have ill be scrubbin for sure as my clearance now is only about an inch over the tires. 215 45 17 btw. yes the ww does look more aggresive though but the p1 looks cleaner. i installed the p1 tonight and am going to rock it for a week or so then switch i think. the final decision will most likely be when i get the mugen sides on. thanks again

Re: need help choosing my front lip. i have two

Go with the wwrs. I just ordered my wwrs kit today. I like the look. I've been saving up for awhile now and finally made a decision. I'm looking at those headlights for mine. Are they led on each side of the bulb?

Re: need help choosing my front lip. i have two

Yeah the 1st one is called a p1 lip (not oem) i believe it's a replica of the motegi but a little different and the second one is a wings west rs (not oem)

I have a replica optional front lip (it's carbon fiber) the rest is the oem kit. you can see it in my sig.. And I think upsluder has the optional oem one above me

There's also the type s which is shorter (jdm) and the motegi one but it's impossible to find.. (European)

There's a few other reps but I forget their names

Re: need help choosing my front lip. i have two

Because of the way that front lips are installed on 5th gen Preludes, I would just stick with the lip provided in the uncovered stock bumper cover.You see the OEM lips installed on the 3rd ,4th gen Preludes I believe were installed under and not over the existing bumper.Done that way the fit and finish and over all appearance is excellent and unchanging with time.When a lip is installed over an existing bumper as is usually done on a 5th gen Prelude to cover up the cars existing lower lip, its fit and finish when first installed just does not look that good and gets worse with time.For those in the know thats because the temperature coefficient of expansion of the material that makes up the bumper cover and the trim piece are not exactly alike. The way it covers up the existing bumper,the way that it tends to warp and detach from its original flush attachment with the front bumper over time and lastly the way that its ends don't always fit flush with the wheel wells all distract from any appearance improvement it would make .At any rate, the stock 5th gen Prelude comes with a lip molded into it that looks just great and never deviates with time from its original look so why hide it!

Picture detailing the problem areas usually effecting this type trim piece thats mounted over as apposed to under the existing front bumper cover.



Picture showing the good looking stock lip that never deterates from its original bling .



Look at item #4 on the 4th gen Prelude. This is the proper way to install a front lip from a fit and finish prospective in my opinion:



Two examples of trim pieces installed under as apposed to over the existing painted body work.Just imaging how crappy the side trim would probably look today if it was glued over the existing lower body panel instead of hanging under it for example.

Balsy? Lol

Yeah it looks sweet! Look at the pic below! Lol

I am the only one that drives my lude and it's my daily driver.. People that say that you will break a carbon fiber lip.. Just don't know how to drive! I've scraped it a few times but you can't see it.. I want to get cf mugen sides and rear.. But I'm still not sure.. I'm just saving up a lot of money and and am gonna do a lot at once
