Ouch! I don't feel bad about the bottom scrapes on mine anymore.

Get it fixed with fiberglass and paint it gloss black?

That's exactly why I would never drop nearly $1,000 for that lip.

Sorry for your loss, man. That would piss me off.

Tks, but **********s is a bit of a hassle for international buyers, plus I'm looking into an overseas replica that another member used and is cheaper than the vendors on here withe the same quality!

Damn! I couldn't stop staring at this lip yesterday at the meet.

That's just from hitting a driveway? at what speed?

Let me know about the overseas place for the replica. PM me, I'd be in one that.

eeek, sorry to hear that. that's my worst fear. too bad you can't get the rep from **********s like me and a lot of others on here. let us know where you end up getting a replacement, just in case (knock on wood).

My condolences OP. That is the exact reason I couldn't justify forking over so much money for a diffuser, you just know itll take a beating.

**********s ship internationally, they just take forever to reply to your email inquiries and then charge nearly double the shipping costs of any other vendor on here. 1st person to make a more readily available and cheaper arkym rep is gonna make some serious $$

FYI, retail for this lip is almost $1k with shipping...but if you hit up Eric@pyspeed.com, he'll give you a deal on the authentic one for not much more than the CPS rep.
