Hartge Lip Installed (NOW INSTALLED)

Here are the pics of the unpainted HARTGE front lip that just came in from Julius at Wheel STO (awsome guy, was always there to help. will definately be buying more from him!!!).

Couple quick opinions. On the 3rd pic down, there is an indent on the pass side where the HARTGE badge in the 4th pic goes. Now do I have the body shop smooth it out and scrap the badge or do I put it on. I really have no idea what to do. Normally I would smooth it out and forget the badge, but I kind of like it. Opinions?????? THANKS.

Of Course I will post pics as soon as it is painted and mounted, hopefully later this week.

NEW PICS

Thanks

yeah, it just slips over the bottom of the bumper and is supposed to be siliconed on, but I am going to have the body shop use 3M tape, so that it could be removed if necessary.

That looks good unpainted. Wrap it with CF, dont forget to clear coat it, or better find a shiny 3D CF wrap and stick it. It'll look sick btw

edit: it may sound rice to stick a CF vinyl, but really, it does look like the real thing when its 3D, no one can tell.
This is your only solution if u'd wished that the vendor had CF. For example, the Hartge Diffuser.

The lip was $565.00 shipped. I know that's expensive but actually it was/is on sale from Julius @ Wheels STO.

I did not want a CF lip, I really like the cleanlyness if it painted white. It almost has a factory look.

I just dropped it off for paint, so hopefully in the next few days I will have some pics of it mounted.

Was throwin an idea

It'll look hot also in white, wasnt saying itll look ugly. Congrats, waiting for final results.

$565 aint bad when buying a Brand name.

Any wheel upgrades in the future?

Hey, if you can, go to the meet at Bear Mtn on Nov 8th and show off the lip. I'd love to see it in person as would others.
