Front Lip Help

Hey guys, first off let me just say I have done quite a bit of searching and reading in the past few weeks and haven't found a recent answer to what I'm looking for here so I figured I'd make a post for it, so please don't start flaming on me for not searching first because I have.

I have a 99 coupe that I bought back in June of 2013 and when I bought it, the car had the rear lip and side skirts but has always been missing the front lip. Now that I just finished my retrofit and all I've really noticed the front needs help to stand out because its pretty sad up front compared to the rest. I'm already working on getting mesh in there and fogs are coming but my question is about the front lip.

I need to buy the front lip, I preferably of course want an OEM but I've been waiting for one to pop up for a bit and haven't seen much....so I guess Im gonna move on and settle for maybe the BaysonR replica. From the reading I've done it seems thats the best alternate oe looking lip.

My question is where the heck should I buy this lip from...I really dont trust BaysonR website just from the reviews I've seen and I dont want to receive a lip that is 3 inches to short or have to screw around getting a refund...I also don't know about going through Ebay for one.....I just want your guys opinions on if its even worth it to risk it going for one of these replicas and just leave it or should I take the chance? Im just trying to be safe before I buy....

Re: Front Lip Help

I think most people bought theirs from baysonr on Ebay.

Re: Front Lip Help

I bought the full kit through eBay without any problems. The only thing is, the BaysonR replace lip is a lot thinner, material wise and height wise, than the OEM.

Re: Front Lip Help

here's listings for OEM white ones but you should call or email them first
http://www.hondapartsnow.com/genuine...1-S82-121.html
http://www.hondapartsoverstock.com/p...F01S82121.html
http://www.oemautopartsplus.com/cata...9/vid/12178905


Also, check this list for part numbers for other colors. The ones that start with "spoiler, FR. Under" is what you want. I cant tell if you're DEP or black so just grab the number and search google. You can also call your dealership and ask them if they can find you one

Re: Front Lip Help

Bayson R lip would be a good choice ... and buy an extra one if you're slammed and worried about destroying it.
I had bought mine from eBay but it was from the Bayson R user and had no issues.

Re: Front Lip Help

it's going to look awful unless you do something with your lower grille

+1 for new bumper.

Re: Front Lip Help

Yeah I know the lower grille looks bad. Previous owner messed around with fog lights down in the grille and he removed all the bumper grille in there. I was honestly contemplating about just buying a new 01 02 bumper, I like the style of those much more as well, but I do really want an underspoiler to match the rest of the car, and I know it's harder to get a nice one for the 02 bumper.

Dont worry, if i keep the current front bumper I have plans on getting a mesh or something in the grille to fix that, it looks really bad right now lol.

Do you guys think I should start just looking for a new bumper or try to keep this one? (p.s. this bumpers underneath bumper lining on w.e its called is also all ripped off from how low I am just to give you an idea of the bumpers quality)

Thanks for all the quick responses guys

Thanks alot for the links man, I didn't even know they still offered these brand new. These are full oem right not replicas? I'll do some researching to see if they sell a black one ( the cars black not DEP ) but if not its not a big deal for me to get it painted.
