Default s203 vs v-limited vs JDM STi lip for MY05?

ok, i have seen these 3 names for "OEM" style lips for 04/05 WRX/STi.
are these actually different types of lips. anyone have pics?

i have a 05 WRX with STi side splitters. i thought i wanted a s203 lip, but then i saw v-limited and JDM STi lips for sale also. what's the difference?

thanks (again pics would be great).

S203 is carbon fiber, V-limited is polyurethane.

you mean the real genuine ones, right? because the replicas come in FRP, poly, carbon.
so if the s203 and v-limited are the same, then the JDM STi is a different type of lip?

The genuine S203 lip is carbon fiber. It is not FRP with a carbon overlay like all of the cheap knockoffs. It is genuine carbon fiber.


The V-limited, same as the Toshi Arai edition is the same shape, but made in polyurethane.


Technically, they are both OEM lips, as they are original equipment on their respective models.

There is also an STI made bumper skirt available. As far as I know, this was not factory installed on any cars, but was available from dealerships just like any other dealer option. This will replace the STi side splitters, the pic also shows JDM fog lamps, STi sport grille w/ mesh, and JDM rain visors


All these parts are available from www.japanparts.com

This is my favorite lip but I just got the V-Limited Replica from Subydude. I can't seem to find replicas of the one quoted and I don't feel like spending that much on something that will get all scraped up

TRooper thanks for all the info.

scrwrx, there is a seller up here in Canada (Toronto specifically) selling FRP replica of the JDM STi lip for $189. i'm sure there are some sites selling replicas of that.

Everything TRooper said is right... great info


At least on Nasioc, the term "JDM STI" lip usually refers to the third lip above... 'STI made bumper skirt'
