Default Ebay Lip for '08+ Models....Anyone Have it?

On the narrow bodies I have always felt like without coilovers the front sits a little high on the WRX's...I have been looking into lips to sort of make the front end look as low as the middle or back of the car but frankly I don;t want to spend $170+ on one. These are Urethane and Polyurethane lips from ebay, has anyone tried one? I know I have read good things about the ones for the older model.

It also says I need the premium bumper, I know I have the base model but my bumper looks like the one pictures so I guess I'm somewhat confused.

Thoughts?

Not really looking for any elitist **** here either

I think a lot of people has it. Quality of course will not match the OEM or well known aftermarket makers but they're fine for their price and their purpose. I don't want to pay $150-$300 for a piece of rubber that will get scrape/break eventually lol. Not that I plan to get one of these since I don't want to drill into my bumper.

I'm wondering the same thing. But I'm really not too keen about drilling into my bumper...

I'm curious to see if anyone can vouch for the quality and fit of these ebay lips. If the fitment is correct, and they wont fall off, then maybe I could live with drilling a couple holes into the bumper..

I don't mind drilling the bumper I mean if you think about it, of your car is lowered at all the bottom of your bumper probably isn't that pretty, just drill small holes, make sure it is secured well. Even the expensive ones have installation hardware don't they?

I mean how different can it be its a polyurethane lip...

Also, can you link where you bought it so I can get it from the same seller to ensure good fitment

I would recommend looking into BaysonR CS Style Lips. They run $89.99 with free shipping. I have one myself its almost the exact replica to the CS Style Lip from HPT (What i used to have).

Yes this is for 08-10 WRX. I believe they only have an eBay store from what I know. Look up seller name: BaysonR.

Could you possibly post a picture of the front of your car with the lip on? Was also contemplating buying one from bayson. Does it fill that entire gap in the middle of our bumpers? 08-10 wrx. Thanks!

They do have a website:

http://www.baysonr.com/Default.asp Although it says you cant purchase from it, but you can call their sales number.

I changed my mind on that the first time I scraped the crap out of my bumper. I'd rather have a bunch of small holes that no one can see than a collection of nasty gouges.
