I am also looking for a v-limited lip. There are some places in the states that sell them for about 460USD.

Hey guys why don't you try pm'ing stimulation. I got mine through a private sale (5 day wait hehe sorry) but I think b14st got his from that shop, Also we both had our's installed there and the install was excellent when I smashed my lip into 6 pieces all the mounting points stayed on the car

I destroyed mine avoiding a (I suspect very drunk) pedestrian. Only thing I could do was make a hard right as she stepped out in front. I found out quickly the right lane was only gravel as I plowed over a foot high curb at 40 (abs & gravel = oil & water ). I damaged the suspension, the lip exploded and the pedestrian just walked away. Icbc said I could claim the damage as a single vehicle accident but it would affect my premium Bs bs bs bs bs I was angry.

I was lucky not to total the car, The lip was not made for what happened to mine. The curb was one foot high because the asphault was not there and I hit it at 40 km/h under full braking (another 2 inches lower). It is actually fairly strong, after I dented it I proceeded to kick at it and even stant on it just to see how strong it was and it supported me. And taking a high speed corner I was able to feel the difference in the front handling (up near 200km/h of course) less wobble more solid/acurate feeling.

Edit: You go snow boarding right I would not want to hit a chunk of ice/snow out of another car's wheel well near the mountains with the lip.
