Default GV lip knockoff :)

So miata.net got a new sponsor and they are selling G-style lips. Seems to be made out of a MUCH sturdier material. Thus... no exploding lips when you hit something.

Mine is already on the way... paid yesterday and its already on UPS truck.

Anyways... they are offering a 20buck coupon for them also.

Enjoy... I always wanted a GV lip... without the explodes when you hit things issue.

they'd be more upset if someone ran over their genuine GV lip and it shattered.

Mine will be here Monday... I'll try to document it for you guys. Fitment exactness will be tough to judge though as my bumper is a shell and deformed from abuse already.

lol..I love that comment!! I would love to see a video with UPS truck run over both GV lip and Touge-Run lip side by side. See which lip will survive.

Knock on wood my GV lip has not cracked or shattered yet. And I have hit it pretty good a few times.

Less and less butthurt each minute as the m.net mods edit out the CR peoples posts.

I have the real one, and I would get that one in a heartbeat when mine breaks (again).

You can still sell it. There's obviously a market for the real thing.

Lame to do a direct knock off. Good to offer a reasonable price and more durability. Hope they can develop some of their own designs in the future. Asian markets have knocked off so many American designs over the last 3 decades it's about time we paid them back in some small way. Still I would have preferred something slightly more unique.

I had the GV lip on my old '97, it survived a pretty nasty crash and is still doing fine on a buddy's car.
