**New Front Lip DIY**

In light of our front lip situation, and the apparent fact that people are willing to resort to "DIY" type lip mods, I present to you all, the EZLIP:

http://www.8thcivic.com/forums/exter...front-lip.html

You all can thank me later.

Not sure.... This is the first time I've seen this done and haven't seen anyone here suggest it. It looks decent though! I agree that it is best suited for a flat bumper but no one knows until they try!

Yea...unique idea. If it was put in a wind tunnel I bet 'cha it is purely cosmetic.

Looks pretty cool in a ricer kind of way tho. Great idea.

I was waiting for someone to say this.

It was an inevitability.

LOL! I totally agree!

I will stick to functional parts...more go and less show is my motto!

Problem is with the M sport front bumper / fender... the fact that it isn't flat across the underside makes this garage door trim look odd, cheep and out of place. It doesn't look too bad on rice with their smooth undersides but it is all wrong on the smarter and more contoured german machines IMO

Yes. This looks surprisingly not ugly.

Wouldn't do it myself, though.
