I know I plan on riveting some metal or something to mine and uses those openings to feed ducting.

If you want predone circles... get the ISC one.

Default Got my lip installed!

I installed my tougerun.com g-style lip last night and I must say I am really impressed with the fit and flexibility of the lip. Install is really easy even on my old and deformed bumper. The lip is flexible enough fit any oem bumper. If you are on the fence on whether or not you should get it, hopefully this review will convince you. And of course here are some pictures. Please no comments on my ugly car its a WIP...

People are taking less and less pride in their cars, and the mods they choose. If you want knockoff parts, you're not a real enthusiest...you just want to look cool in pictures on a forum. ..........

Yeah. Don't knock off GV! They are all that is sacred and holy.



Oh, wait. Is that a Wisdom style bumper GV makes? Um...

Hey Pot. This is the Kettle. You're black.


Now if someone would just knock off or import this bumper skin we might have something.

Check out the front half accessory page pics. That has a flat undertray too.





They have the hood we need too. Damn them and their holiness!

Okay, so I wonder if this is at all functional stuff or just trying to look good? I'd be curious to know if the little black splitters in the front do a damn thing or just look neat...

Dammit. Now Braineack could be in trouble with the fanbois. Wait til word gets out at CR that he knocked off Tuckin's side mount license plate holder! These are pics from the tuckin website.





Brains diagram. Coincidence? I think not! How dare he copy their obviously brilliant design they spent so much R&D money and time in engineering!

R Speed is selling real GV lips - in stock - at $129 if you want the real thing. RSpeed - Miata & MX-5 Parts, Service and Aftermarket Goods Super cheap if you want the real deal.

yes...$129 with shipping. I'll pass the GV lip and go for TougeRun lip since one of my friend already went through 3 GV lips within a year. I rather put my money in a product that can last with better material..IMO. That is the biggest reason why I didn't want to get GV lip to begin with!! but to each their own..

Holy crap that's a huge price cut and deal. That looks like a bit of an over-reaction to Chaser on R-speeds part. Making a statement? Getting out of the GV lip business? Going to handle the Chaser version?

how much lower are these than the R lip? My R package lip already scrapes on just about everything.

Shipping is in addition to the $129. Until you actually get to the final stage of placing the order it doesn't add the shipping. When you finally hit the checkout after giving all the credit card info and such, shipping is added. For me at a business address it was another $32 tacked on.

Well suck me sideways I'm getting one, it's one of those stupid things that I can't resist.
If I don't like it I'll sell it. If I do I'll be selling my R-lip soon.
