Anyone rocking a front lip?

Have any of you invested in a front lip for your car?

I'm very very tempted in buying one! My car is an MSport so I tried searching for some examples....this one stood out for me:


- credit: OSS designs

So there are two companies; Arkym:

or this ebay one:

The ebay one looks better in my opinion!

ANyways!

If you have one, please put up pics!

Very few options for full lips to fit the MSport bumper. FWIW I think the Arkym one looks much better, the ebay one looks... well... like an ebay one, IYSWIM.

That's reflected in the prices too - $900 for the nice one, 111 for the Taiwanese ebay one...

True! Thing is, I'd rather spend that $900 and get OSS lights!

Im going to wait until someone posts an Arkym lip in one of the regional classifieds... for a bargain! But otherwise, Ive seen people using the ebay one and it doesnt look like a bad alternative!

+1. Arkym looks awsome but does not justify its price.
If you find one in classified section, you will be lucky to have it.

I have the same problem, the Arkym is the best but very pricey and to be honest im not a fan of any of the other options. The aero SE front lip looks a million dollars compared to the m sport options.

That 1st pic looks as if its a different front bumper or has corner splitters moulded into it aswell the added lip.

Don't be fooled that because you are buying it from actual shop (e.g. SSDD) that it does not come from the same factory in Taiwan that eBay sellers get it from.

For one if your not happy you can return it for a replacement or refund without going to the expense of shipping it half way round the world and waiting 3 weeks. And as it is an actual shop there will be some quality control so there is a better chance getting what you expected which is a big advantage over buying off eBay.
