    Well...I heard back from HT Autos...he wouldn't give me any group buy discounts, but he did say that he could throw 2 lips in one box, thus cutting the shipping costs in half.

    the only problem I see with this is that, unless some of you are close to me, it's going to cost an arm and a leg for me to ship the extra lip to you from Newport Beach.

    Anyone terribly intersted?

    Here is the manufacturer, which is in Australia: N-1 AUTO ACCESSORIES

    Try to make them speed up the design, maybe even give some input.

    Not to derail the topic.. but theres always the garage door foam lip if you want something cheap thats adds protection:
    Universal Front Bumper Lip Diffuser Splitter Valence * | eBay

    I actually ordered one (for $20 shipped), its just a strip of rubber with 3m double sided tape on it but haven't bothered to installed it. I figure it might protect the bumper from a little damage and costs almost nothing.

    Not a bad option to make those unaware aware of. I can't bring myself to such a low dollar solution, but at the rate it's taking to produce an aftermarket lip I may jus thave to!

    I figure it this way:
    Its only $20, and it will protect the bottom of your bumper from curbs/parking/etc. If it gets damaged or ripped, you know you don't deserve a real lip spoiler based on your driving/parking style. Think of it as "training lip"
    I think there's a few threads on here with pics, search around.

    These are some of the DIY options out there

    DIY Solid Front Lip : The Writeup - NASIOC

    DIY Front Lip - Version II - NASIOC

    Obviously the first one is better.

    Can't see photos at work but it sounds like that first one has wood IN it? Meh.

    I actually kinda love that second option...I've seen the DIY lip before but never doubled up like that. I might have to give this one a try when I get back from the Bahamas! It'll cover up my small scrapes/tiny front bumper crack from pulling too far into a parking spot.

    The foam types don't protect, I had one.

    It looks good for ""until I get a real one".

    I mean...that depends on how you define "protect". It's obviously going to reduce scraping and rock chipping on the areas it covers.

    Definitely want a front lip but can't decide if I want to do the front lip or the tS trunk lid first. To do both I would be pushing a grand. And to think when I bought the car a couple of months ago I said I wasn't going to spend any money on mods...

    Lip is important for protection, it's maddening when a scrape reaches over the edge.
