Re: Lost between the 2

Well then, for what its worth, I never liked the mugen lip- and I dont think CF is for everyone- especially in a place thats going to take a lot of road abuse.

Re: Lost between the 2

Hey I just received my mugen lip yesterday that I ordered from ebay. With whatever kit you do order, if you get anything from ebay just make sure you email the seller first and make sure you know exactly what you're getting. I was pretty upset when I got mine, I specifically wanted it to come in black ABS plastic. I really liked the way it looks on a silver em2 with my type R grill and I was going to get new wheels with probably black or a dark gunmetal grey.
But of course the guy on ebay sent me a "white" lip. The thing isn't even really white first of all. It looks like a huge yellow glow stick.
So just wanted to make sure you are careful when you order if you go the ebay route. but it just comes down to you get what you pay for i guess

Re: Lost between the 2

I personally love my knockoff mugen lip, however, I only have 2 1/2 inches of clearance, and it does get some abuse lol, I would go with ABS if possible, the ebay lips are hard plastic that is crack prone, and cf will get ruined fast, just my 2 cents.

Re: Lost between the 2

no offense to anyone on the site please but dont get "type B" .......
it is a clean look and doesn't really stick out too much but it's not attractive at all in my opinion. type r would be great but you've gotta watch your bumps and its the same with mugen but even if you scratch it it wont be as noticeable.
