Wow that looks good! For the longest time I've had it in my mind that I want the Prodrive replica lip with the DIY II lip under it, but this pic may have changed my mind!

Here's the Prodrive replica:

And the V-Limited lip:

Both polyurethane.

the replica prodrive fits alright not completely perfect but for the price you cant really complain.
I ordered a '04 vlimited before I got the prodrive and you have to cut the ends off as they go into the wheel well.
PU is awesome, you can smash your lip up on anything and it wont break.

Some one posted a review of the eBay Prodrive replica lip. The pictures are down now, but I remember them saying it fit very VERY well. Handsdown had this to say:

tell me that's not the same mold. even the other letters and numbers of the code are the same, the only thing different is the date stamp.


it's as genuine as the real thing. made in austria.

it's entirely possible that they got the same molds and used different processes and materials, but the molds are the same if not an exact replica.

only difference i see is that the primer doesn't look as nice or tacky.

You'd have to cut it; the sedan bumper is wider (from the front) then the wagon bumper. Or you could do a sedan front end swap.

I just PM'd the guy that owns the black bugeye posted above. Hopefully he provides some insight on what is used and how its done.

I never wanted a huge lip like the greddy or others and the prodrive lip was perfect, just not quite enough. So once i saw this combo it was love at first sight.

Ok so i got a reply. This should help everyone out some.

Quote:
What i have is the authentic prodrive lip, my main purpose of putting on the 06-07 v limited lip was to protect the Prodrive,.
I dont know about the real 06-07 v limited lip, as i used the replica one;all i can say is the replica v limited is made of frp which is easy to manipulate w/ out the guilty feeling if it cracks or breaks, and its cheap, here's what i did, took of the bumper first for ez install, then i chop/cut the small potruding part in the middle of the replica to make it even cuz if you dont it would look wavy...ill show you a pic of what im talking about, this is right after i put the lip on lip, just to let you know i did the night before this car show so i have no way of knowing if its straight or crooked on close up...

so right after the show i immediately went on to cut the middle part, then a lil help of heat gun, align it on the edge of the prodrive lip of course i used nuts/bolts as fastener. This better lookin than the dyi garage door sill, hope this helps.
