bayson r replica lips ive been happy with. but go for it. doesnt seem bad. but its like foam..
Installation instructions say all you need is scissors...and that if it comes any shorter than 7.5ft, return it. I bet it gets delivered to you rolled up in a plastic bag!
Just saying...it doesn't look bad at all. And if you're happy with it, that's all that matters.

I am just testing it out and helping others who were interested. Thus the reason for my post.
It's different because is angled for proper fitting. Unlike a "garage strip" from Home Depot/Lowe's/Your local grocery/hardware store and requiring to purchase 3M tape and sizing it yourself. EZ Lip has a universal fit for your model. I requested for the 8.5 ft EZ-Lip which was due to the extra length for the GV8 model.
Its not bad for the price. And yes because it says EZ-Lip and they gave me a brand sticker. LOL
Thank you for you input though. I will look into more lips in the future with higher quality and durability.
The quality looks good. However, I am wondering what it looks like while driving 65mph on the freeway...
I guess I will have to experiment if it folds/bends while driving at certain speeds. If so, I am definitely returning the item.
I will update ASAP.
yea thats what i wondered about like highway +. may bend or fall off. see how it goes. for 30$ cant beat it...can always use it as a home door draft guard if you dont like it haha
I bought one as well, but haven't installed it yet. The rubbery foam does seem pretty high grade, though.
I say skip the EZ lip and get the V lip as others posted above, it is an actual lip and not considered ''ricey'' like the EZ lip (aka Home Depot Lip) is in other car communities.
I found the V-Limited lip for $34.75 shipped so it is only a few buck more expensive but look better and will last longer than the EZ lip. Here is the link-

The other issue I have with the EZ/HD lip is that I have seen several people install it improperly on front bumpers that aren't flat (ie our bumpers). The only thing I would ever consider the EZ lip for is side skirts but I would still rather get actual skirts even if they cost a few bucks more.
I had an ez-lip on my miata before I bought my WRX. It looked awesome... from a distance... It actually began to come un done after 10xxx miles or so. I promised myself after buying it last time to actually do things the 'right' way on my next vehicle even if it meant saving for more expensive parts.
How could you tell? You can't see it while driving...
FWIW, I have this on my wife's car to stop her from scraping the curbs when parking, and it's held up very well. Several months now and other than looking dirty (like the rest of the car), it's not deformed or torn at all.
