Quick someone organize a groupbuy!!! I've been waiting for an arkym rep for so long... But $450 for a replica seems kinda steep...

But actually now I'm torn.

Do I save about $500 bucks and go for the rep or do I go authentic arkym and get perfect fitment?


Not sure if its worth the extra $500 since its going to be something that will just get scraped. But at the same time, I'm almost certain this won't fit as well the Arkym lip. (in all of their pictures they didn't even install it, so they're probably not as confident in the fitment either..)


What do you guys think?

i need a lip badly to even out my front to my rear but now that youve put it that way.. yes.. it is somewhat steep.. i wonder if a groupbuy can help a bit though.. i just know i really want this.. but the real one, well.. i dont have that much balls to scrape around $1200 against the pavements in town and cringe everytime i hear it happen..

anyone got any ideas? hm..

personally i would get replica, because i dont want to crack/scrape/break a genuine lip thats over $1000. its kinda stupid to spend that kind of money on a lip, cause we all know no matter how careful u drive, eventually something WILL happen to it.

in terms of fitment, it looks like they shoved a lot of cardboardboxes under there to make it a snug fit? But even with that it seems OK..

I'd really like to see if anyone purchased this yet.. should i get this posted in another section to see if another member has purchased it so far?

Also, anyone familiar with installing a lip like this? the website says no holes drilled.. does this mean I would have to use the 3M tape as well as drill it to the bumper?

I like this lip, but 500 is still too high for a rep. Maybe we can do a group buy and have it ship to border we go pick it up to save all the troubles dealing with **********

For this kind of big lip, 3m+drill is better idea.

I think they have it @ $500 since they know that there isn't much competition yet. So monopolizing it for now is their advantage.

We could do an LCI meet and install at US Address or CBI USA. It might go down to $375-$400 shipped for GB.

It would also help if they have pics of the LCI version. The fitment looks ok on the pre-LCI.

Spoke to Alan at **********s. a few members have ran this lip and it's 100% fitment from waht he says. Hit up Alan for a special hook up price! I already have mine :P
