The lip on the second pic was made by member Boostx. He made a run of them once and that was it. It's made from a JDM Sigmaspeed lip that was used to make the mold. It actually fits both JDM and USDM bumpers, but good luck finding one.

I actually had one, but ended up not really liking it. The fit was weird on one side and it just didn't really flow well with my car. I think the one on Mike's car in that pic is the one that I sold him actually.

I'm not sure about what's on the car in the first pic. That may be a DIY garage door bottom seal style Home Depot lip.

lol your good! the bottom is a seal lip. i heard alot of people use the accord lip and cut them down to look alot like the boostx but havent seen one on a us bumper to justify buying one to try

The Honda accord rear bumper lip fits with some cutting and modification. Prove_it (Ryan) did this one on my car. I think its one of the better looking ones that are out there. Plus Accord rear bumper lips are dime a dozen.

That one was a mock up. It's the bumper that 1284 hit a tree with. I was able to fix it up enough to try and shorten the bumper. Haven't figured out the stock fogs though.

I think that accord one looks kinda weird, looks too spread apart in my opinion.

Yep Mark is correct, I have his front lip on my car currently, and I'm very happy with it. I really like this style lip and wish they'd make a polyeurathane or carbon version of it.

The jdm bumper also makes a big difference. I think the Boostx lip works on the jdm far better than the US bumper.

I actually feel the opposite. I like the Boostx lip better on the USDM bumper.

Do you remember who it was that put the Boostx on the USDM bumper?

I don't. But I remember the lip making the bumper look shorter to me, since it was taller with the lip on. On a JDM bumper, it makes the bottom section of the bumper (which already sticks out) look like a train cattle guard. I liked it from the front, but not from any other angle.

There's a few pics floating around with this lip on a USDM bumper I'll do try to dig one up.

I agree it looks so much better on a USDM bumper - but on either bumper there's still the mis-match of heights of the lip, sideskirts and the rear. I feel they all need to be in line with each other.

All these lips look like shit from the side. The overbite look is not appealing.

Doesn't the rear jdm bumper sit a little bit lower?

Yeah I think it sits a bit lower than the USDM rear bumper, it's almost even with the side skirts.

The rear JDM bumper sits no lower than the USDM version. It's an optical illusion due to the built in lip it has. At the bottom of the wheel arch they are the same anyway.
