Default P1 replica lip (plastic)

Bought it maybe 2 months ago. I'm not happy with the way it looks (yet again!) and I'm going back to something I used to have.

I rattle canned it flat black.

Didn't come with any mounting hardware and neither will this.

I paid $360+ shipping, so I'll cut $60 off the top. Remember buyer pays shipping and I have no idea how much that could be (I paid $80).





My fav:


Looking for $300 + shipping. Locals welcome, will drive to meet within distance. Paypal add $310 + shipping.

This may sound silly, but can you post a picture from underneath? Ie on that lip what does the area in front of each wheel look like?

Before the rattlecan treatment what color was the lip? Aren't those plastic lips usually black urethane?

It was black before the paint. In front of each wheel? Well it just attaches there with 2 screws I put in. I don't have any pictures of that

So the real P1 lip looks like this underneath



I'm suspicious that that section that is sort of filled-in infront of the wheel is largely what makes the P1 lip work so well. A lot of the replicas I have seen don't have that part.

So what's the one you have look like?

You're right, it's a replica and doesn't have that extra portion! The real one has more of a performance related purpose I'm sure. However, how can you tell if that's the lip or the connecting fender liner?

Thanks guys. I'm really pushing to sell this lip... any offers around $300 might be taken (with shipping of course).

Hey where did you get it from in the first place? I'm kind of digging the lip, but the rattle can paint job just seems like a bad idea.

This is undoubtedly the coolest lip made for the V5-V6 bumper. I had wanted one for a long time, and I can guarantee this price is WAAAY lower than you could get one for from across the pond.

If I hadn't bought a V6 lip last month, I would have bought this one myself, but someone should nab this one quickly....

BUMP for an awesome lip!

A company called HT Autos that sells a lot of GC/GM Impreza stuff. Believe me, the rattle can job looks 10x better than the black plastic look... you can kind of see it in the pictures (they were before the paint job, I did it a few days ago).
