Front lip is tight and fits pretty well. Slight gap on the driver side where the fog light cover is. If you paint the lip body color, it would be hard to notice

Sideskirts need to be heated up a little to make them shape to the body better. There were dimples in my lips from when they were released from the mold. They had to be filled in and smoothed

Rear lip fitment is pretty bad. Needs to be heated up to get it to get closer to the bumper (otherwise there's like a 1/4" gap in the middle). But when you do that, on the right corner where it screws into the bumper, there is now a gap that will require like 3 washers or so. Corners where it meets fake grille vents isnt that tight either

Lip kit is still at the bodyshop waiting for paint. I'll post closeups showing imperfections when i get it on

If you're a perfectionist, i'd pass on this kit. If you're getting it for the hell of it since it's only 250$ (be prepared to spend 3x more on paint and labor if you want it to look decent), go for it.

It clears, but the corner hangs down a little in front of the right tip. It just needs a little trimming so it doesn't melt.

I haven't fully installed the sides and rear yet, but do you really just screw these right to the underside of the body? I think I'm just worried about rust forming.

Careful with these if you live anywhere that has cold winters. It was in the 20s for a few days and I came out of work to a crack in the center section of the front lip. The lip basically shattered in several places after that. Whatever material they used to make (at least the first round) of these kits is really brittle when cold.

That sucks. Have any pictures of the damage?

That was one of my fears about purchasing this lip. I want one bad, but we just had a lot of snow, and while I was driving through it with my car I was just thinking about how much damage it would do if I had purchased the lip kit last summer. Of course I could remove it for the winter, but that's a bit of a hassle.

The ad says the lips are made of polypropylene, which is used in a lot of newer cars and is probably the same material that the bumpers are made out of, just not held to as high of quality as an OEM. I figured they would probably be FRP until I read that they could be better formed with a heat gun.
