Re: Lip kit

On the sh the sides and rear or colored match to the car. They have an optional lip kit that sits lower than what you have on the car now.

Re: Lip kit

try posting pics of your car too, so there's no confusion as to what is exactly already on your car

Re: Lip kit

Okay I see people saying they have the oem lip kit, my car appears to already have factory side skirts so wondering if I just need a front and rear lip or if there's a a different oem side skirt, it's a 2001 sh

Re: Lip kit

The oem optional lip kit hangs lower than what you already have. If you put the oem optional front lip it will hang a little lower than the factory sides.

Re: Lip kit

if your car sides look like the first picture you have factory sides not oem optional. if it looks like the second then you have oem optional sides. the third picture is what your car would look like with factory sides and oem optional lip. the rear on the ebp lude is the mugen rear.

Re: Lip kit

They dont make em anymore. But if anything go to your local honda dealership and ask them about it. Thats what I did and this is what I found out.
OEM side skirts are non-exsistant brand new, go ahead and search but I even had them search the nation wide inventory that they could access, including all of their major warehouses, that search equaled = NO LUCK
As for front OEM lips, there are a few still available, but I was only able to find them NEW in the color NHP *Base model black*.
Rear OEM lips are even more limited, but my dealership was able to find one at the Oregon warehouse, but they only had ELECTRON BLUE left.

But what I did was I went into my local Honda dealership, showed them the quoted prices of online stores that were selling OEM honda products, and BELIEVE IT OR NOT they actually offered to price match all of them!
They even price matched HANDA.com, plus I got free overnight shipping (to the dealership). only down side was having to pay tax on it, but I got my OEM front lip for about $180 out the door brand new, painted in the colored I needed just 2 weeks ago!

Other than that, your gonna have to buy them used. So search the forums. You could also go with replicas such as.. OEMLIP.com - LIP KITS - FX BODY-KIT - ACURA - HONDA

Good luck in your search!

Re: Lip kit

Honda quit making the lip kit but you can still get the front and rear lips from h and a accessories. They have a very limited number of fronts and rears left and are completely out of sides. If you want the sides you have to get replicas or wait to someone is selling them. You can get a whole replica kit from wings west that fits decent. Some members on here have them and like them but like any replica they may take some work to get them to fit right.
