    I received my "OEM" replica lip from Restyling Specialist yesterday via FedEX. It was bubble wrapped and amply protected. I bought it on 12/28 and received it 1/4 - about a week turnaround time. Pretty good considering the holidays. It came with nuts, bolts, washers,and a little STi nameplate. It will probably go on this weekend.

    Nice! It's a very easy install to do, made even easier with ramps.

    ^what ramps do you have? I've been shopping amazon for a set, but not sure which ones to get. I recently bought a crappy jack from O'Reily's Auto Parts and returned it the same day.

    True. I forgot to mention that I now have to stagger my way up with a couple 2x10s.

    With the hardware included, did you have to drill any holes? Or did you use different nuts/bolts and or double sided tape?

    You got the OEM one right? If so, no drilling is required and all of the hardware you need is included; no tape. Though I did use painters tape to hold up one side while I installed the other.

    It's good quality and seems durable. $124 vs. $330 So I decided to take a chance.

    Understandable. I guess you'll just need to get some new nuts/bolts from home depot or somewhere; no biggy.

    Lip installed! I went to Lowe's today and got some self-tapping screws and washers, longer push clips for the wheel wells, along with some 3M mounting tape (didn't need it though). I drilled 12 holes to install the lip. Fitment is great, but I may readjust it as it seems flush with the front edge of the bumper.

    Longer push clip and screws purchased at Lowe's.



    OEM Replica Front Lip purchased on eBay, intalled.






    It's a very subtle, look. I like it, but it could be better still. I think the front of the lip needs to come out a little bit.
