The OEM lip wraps higher onto the bumper... so called type R lip doesn't wrap as high up... it's more of a lower lip.... i saw it on that one and the oem side by side.. there is a difference (slighty)



OEM Style


So called Type R, this cars pushes 170 HP i think

the pic is of the oem lip, i'm pretty sure since i have a black coupe with oem kit... as for the type R one, it's just the oem but doesn't wrap around the bumper if at all.

Ohhh..
and we found out that the sides fit both 2 AND 4dr cars, they are exactly the same.

So, it seems that the 4dr and 2dr lips are all interchangable. Pretty cool, i think.

Well, hope that helps answer soem questions.

This isnt a scam guys, thats my car up there and so far, i think it looks clean as hell for not being painted. i actually picked up the RS grill off of Rob from tornactive today and he was wicked chill about it, as for the sides, it seems to be universal so it fits both the coupe and sedan. as for the rear, its cool but there seems to be a gap in between but it fits snugg, i guess thats the look. Anywho, trust me guys, this kist is hella clean, hopefully i can get my ish painted and we'll post pics soon. peace

last time i checked, $199 + $125=325 which is smaller (cheaper) than 349, so unless shipping is real expensive tornactive has the better price...

Asylum's price includes front lip, rear lip, & side skirts.

so are you saying the $199 if for both the front & rear lips, and $125 for both sides? If so I misunderstood. [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG]

What would be the total amt for the whole kit w/ shipping?

Yah,Asylum does have it for$349 but have you tried calling them. After like 20 tries i gave up calling them in Colorado and realized that Rob @ tornactive was local and was cool enough to let me check it out in person. Asylums number doesnt even work..... thats on you iguess where you want your money to go.
