Default which 02-03 bugeye GDA front lip do you guys like better? V1 or v2


v1 sti front lip


V2 front lip

we currently carry the v2 front lip for sale but not the v1.
the reason we ask this is because we are considering making replica of the v1 lip but we gotta see if there is enough demand.

it depends on the style bumper, like the V1 goes well the bumpers without fins on the vents next to the fog lights, but V2 lips goes perfect with the vented bumpers

If the V1 lip were made of durable polyurethane, you would be the first to make a replica out of this material. The v2 is already amply sold in replica form. I would likely buy the v1... so clean!

we can make it in polyurethane as well. but if there's not enough demand than price will be high since we are only producing a few. we are selling the v2 in replica form already; http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2388554

does your V2 lip have molded in canards on the side? that's an interesting twist. i'd like to see a V1 with that sort of texture on the side. i'd also like to see a 1 piece V2.

edit - i voted for V1 because i have one on the car now, so that already answers your question. BUT the market needs a poly V1 lip. it's currently flooded with knockoff V2's right now.

I think the Subaru community has plenty of knockoff parts. How about not making a replica.

the only reason why some want v1 is because everybody has the v2.. making them hard plastic (like oem) would be nice. paint dosent like poly lips.

Ding ding ding! We have a winner! How about designing an original, unique lip that is not a rip-off of someone else's hard work?

Who knows, it might be the new hawtness and bring you untold riches... Just a thought.

I agree with many posts like "Decipher". V1 is top notch. Nothing beats Clean, Sexy, & Simple. Please try to produce the V1's. They WILL sell.

I like the V1 better, it looks cleaner. But I hate how high the sides come up, looks tacky. I would love to see a Prodrive style lip that has a splitter built in. The 04-05 front end had a lip like this, but I dont think you could keep the STI splitters on with it.

Anyone know what 04-05 lip Im referring to?

Found it, I dont know who made it thou, but a Bugeye version of this (still subtle thou) would look awesome

V1! please !!!!! There is a ton of interest for this lip. A vendor flopped on delivering this lip.
