I know someone had an oem bumper for sale here with the lip molded painted but I didn't get it. It would've been cheaper than my rep with the lip now so I wish I did... I don't think i'm gonna paint it cause i've heard bad things about painting carbon fiber and I also feel like the carbon fiber might go well with the black accents like grilles, headlights, and the carbon fiber on the rear.

Where did you purchase the CF interior trim wrap? I'm thinking about finally wrapping the aluminum trim.

I shopped around and the best price I could get was from JleviSW. They have changed their name since then to Silicon Valley Concepts so I would shoot them an email. I believe it was around $80 or so for 3m Di-noc matte carbon fiber (best looking vinyl imo) and the size was 60x48. That size was perfect and I even had some left over which I gave to a buddy to use

Go for the splitters, but I am partial to them. Do what you like man. I think the lip would look better if you had a BBS LM style wheel where as your wheels now would look better with splitters.

Yea I know i'm having such a hard time deciding . I keep going back and forth on what I think would look best and really can't make up my mind. I like the splitters and they're much cheaper but I see msport cars with splitters around here and I kinda wanna be more unique... The only downsides for me with the lip is the price, install is harder, and that it might look too flat.

How much did you pay?

Chances are you can get it cheaper on ebay. I think $50-$60 and you'll have enough to wrap the full interior. Sellers metrorestyling and autovinylsolutions have the best prices.

The lip looks better on a "hella-flush" stanced car.

I just checked the emails and it actually came out to $93 shipped... I remembered it being cheaper but I guess that's what it was. I wanted a specific size to make sure i'd have enough if I messed up though and at the time that was the cheapest I could find. As you said you can probably get it much cheaper on ebay

Yea that's actually a good point and I definitely have no plans to go "hella-flush" . I just ordered the carbon fiber tips from cyba a few nights ago so those will be installed hopefully next week. I was going to order something for the front tomorrow since that's when I get paid from work but I might hold off until I can make a better decision.

Yea I think i'm going full lip. I was worried it will be too flat but but I guess we'll see. Should go well with the spoiler in the back and the cf tips coming . After the lip I think I gotta take a break for a little bit and start saving up money again. Also gotta do some mileage stuff like valve cleaning this spring

Updated the OP so it's up to date along with some test fit pics of the lip waiting to be installed . Looking back it has really came so far from where it started, it's crazy... Hopefully by the time I hit a year the lip can be installed and I can be to the point where I am 100% satisfied with the car (looks, sound, performance, etc..) and any other future mods will just be extra.

Phenomenal build! Can't wait to see the lip installed. Great choice on the full lip vs. splitters. This has win written all over it.

Thanks it's definitely been quite the journey. Hopefully i'll find the time to install the lip this weekend, can't wait to see how it looks actually installed.
