what do you guys think about these lips?

so ive been looking around, but havent been able to find much. i am looking for a replica oem lip, but dont know which one to buy. i am looking at some on ebay that state they are polyeurathane, but are they strong? or are they just like the weak fiberglass replicas or weak plastic greddy lips?

97 01 Prelude Front Bumper Lip Urethane | eBay

97 01 Prelude OE Optional Front Bumper Lip Urethane | eBay

any opinions on one vs another?

I like the first one. The polyurethane is pretty strong, it's not fiberglass and won't crack like fiberglass. But as it goes with any type of plastic it can crack if you hit a curb or parking block. The poly just has more flex to it

I bought the second one. It's polyurethane. And it fit pretty well. I followed the instructions to stretch it out and it fit pretty well. I got pictures if you want.

Re: what do you guys think about these lips?

Same, I have the second one. Painted now but I find that urethane is a cheap thing to use to auto parts. It feels like rubber it's not solid, bends super easily and you need a heat gun to fix the bumps when you will get it./.
