Questions on Ebay Items.

97-01 HONDA PRELUDE H22A PU FRONT BUMPER LIP SPOILER 99 | eBay
I found this lip to along with my Base skirts/rear I don't want a OEM lip kit so I thought the black would go great with my base lips. Hows the quality/fitment of the lip? Also does anyone have it? What are your thoughts also pictures of it on your car would be great.

HID KIT XENON CONVERSION H1/H3/H4/H7/H11/9004/9006/9007 | eBay
Good or bad? I'm looking at either 8000k/1000k for my headlights, I have projectors on my car already but the light bulbs suck. Should I buy them? at 35 bucks I don't see why not.

97-01 HONDA PRELUDE 2PC WINDOW SUN SHADE VISOR RAIN GUARD SELF ADHESIVE | eBay
Hows the quality/ fitment on these? Their ABS plastic but I don't see the problem there since they just sit on the window. The only thing I gets me is it all adhesive with a small tab at one end. The real JDM ones are they like that too? I was thinking hardware was needed but I've never dealt with anything like these before.

Also I see the brand "OBX" in a few other things like headers and other items is that a good brand?

Re: Questions on Ebay Items.

No opinion on the lip... I have the oem one. As far as the HID kit, get the DDM tuning Slim kit, not that eBay crap. You wont be sorry and you wont spend that much. On the visors, Im not a fan, just don't like the look.

Re: Questions on Ebay Items.

Don't bother with that lip/seller - the picture they are using is that of a Mugen bumper with a photoshoped lip. 100% inaccurate as per what they are trying to sell.

If you want a p1 lip - find another seller. A local member has one and he had no issues with it, i think he just screwed it on (nothing aftermarket fits like oem, so expect some shady install jobs)

I have no suggestion on the hid kit, i'd say go retrofit but that's just my biased opinion.

The real jdm ones attach using clips - not double sided tape. I've seen a few people use the ones that require the use of that tape but don't know much more besides that. Just be aware they can fall off beings it's just held on with tape.

OBX makes ITB's and a few other things (some are ok but most are eh), wouldn't recommend a header from them since it wont be any better than stock/dc/megan. If you want a cheap header - i suggest Vibrant. Or go the replica way as so many others tend to do. The more expensive headers such as HyTech and Mugen are up there in price ($1,000+)

Re: Questions on Ebay Items.

For the Lip DONT get it have you ever thought how you where going to mount it to the bumper? I thought about this lip as well but after looking at others i have noticed that it will be a pain in the #$#$ to even try to mount it on my bumper where on others it makes it so that all you have to do it screw it the bottom of the bumper and add a bit of 3M tape.
For the Vent visors for that price you might as well go to O'reillys or Autozone and Buy them their and just skip the 1 week wait to put them on. And if you don't like the way they look you can always return them back unlike the EBAY item that will it will just be another wait for your money back.
PS: You can get them at Autozone for the same price except sometimes you gotta order it( No Extra Charge) just you gotta wait like 2 days but if you don't like the product you can get your money back unless you install them.

Re: Questions on Ebay Items.

I got a P1 lip that came with my car. It's really durable. Hit a curb kinda hard once and it didn't scratch or crack.

I thought the same until my buddy got a DDM tuning kit. One of his ballasts failed in under a week while my Xentec eBay kit has been working perfectly for over a year.

Re: Questions on Ebay Items.

For the front lip it will fit fine. I have the same style idk if it`s the same one with the hardware but it`s pretty easy to install. As to the bulbs I think your going a bit to high but DDM tuning is the way to go. As or the visors I don`t know if yhey will work and fit fine but I like my weathet tek visors

Re: Questions on Ebay Items.

Go with Weathertech rain guards. They are simply the best! Better than OEM in my opinion. They just slide right into the window channel, no double sided tape, no screws no nothing, they just slide in and stay nice and tight. I have them on my car and I am very happy with them.

Re: Questions on Ebay Items.

Thanks for the info guys! Sorry late response haha. The lip, well I'm gonna buy it soon and let you guys know how it is It's PU and don't see why it would not be good quaility. The HID'S I'll just do more research and hold off on them but I'll most likely buy, 35 bucks for some HID's is good price and don't see much too loose. Can I get a link on the window rain guards CTLude? Also some pictures please :)

He must of gotten a bad set or something.
I've had my DDM kit for about two years and hasn't failed on me yet. And as the previous poster said, they are lifetime warranty.

Re: Questions on Ebay Items.

I have that lip and I don't really like how it is shipped. It came all bent up in the box and I had to take my heat gun to it for 30 min to get it to get semi-straight. It comes with four (4) z-brackets and 8 screws. Mine didn't wrap around far enough to the passenger side, but I used a little engineering to make it fit (for the most part).

Re: Questions on Ebay Items.

Yeah I've heard how they ship it. Hopefully mines doesn't come too bundled up and can be restored to original form with the sun. And what did you have to do to the lip to make it fit?

Re: Questions on Ebay Items.

i just ordered one from ebay about two weeks ago, it wasnt folded when i recieved it, it came in a huge box. if you scroll down the page to the shipping info and stuff the one i ordered said that it would not be folded.
