The lip looks great on your ride mate.

I own the same ride as you but have yet to install mine....:icon_sad:

The agent distributing it here in my country sells them so expensive and i am now scouting for a replica ones, including the rear lower lip (curvy ones) as well....

Hope i be able to find them....

With the savings u made from buying the front lower lip, then you should get the sprts front grille as what vinnyd suggested, they look a killer for sure!

still needs a sports grille though. which turbo did you go with?
i bought a kinetic evo3 16g tdo5 7cm. already looking into upgrading the housing to the 8cm. but i got a screamin deal on this and the girlfriend is the type of drive that slowly rolls throttle and never goes past 5k and doesnt like to downshift so i think it will suite her good.
i did what i could like porting the turbo and downpip (perrin dw catless) and had them both ceramic coated to help with exhaust gas flow and minimize creep. which im sure ill see some.
its crazy i got the turbo for 350 and the housing for the 8cm side from fp is 295. know anywere else to get them?
