    Front lip

    Hey guys - I just got a front lip for my 2014 WRX - the one from ebay. I held it up to the car and it looks like it won't fit. How are you guys making it fit?

    I can tell you how to make it fit, but I wouldn't be talking about a front lip on a car...

    lay it in the son for a few hours, should return to its original mold. if it still doesn't fit, then you're SOL. What more do you want for under 100$

    Try baysonR next time!

    I bought the BaysonR CS style lip from ebay for my 2013 WRX, but I haven't installed it yet. It doesn't lay 100% flat, but it's pretty close. Hopefully after being in the sun for a few hours it will lay completely flat though.

    Let it sit in the sun for a while to soften up if not get a hair dryer and heat it up to help mold it. Taking off the bumper will be the easiest mine didnt fit correctly but its more of a protector from scrapes

    do what they said. take the bumper off and mock it up. use a blowdryer or heat gun to warm it up if you need to bend it any.

    If it doesn't fit, use more force.. at least that's what I do.
