i am having problems deciding on which setup to go with.
Right now I have a wings west style carbon fiber front lip (all alone in my room). The thing is, i have a little over 3.5" clearance from the ground in the front. I am scared i will fuck up my front lip when i drive around town. And anyone who knows anything about CF knows it expensive as hell to fix it when damaged. I also can go ahead and purchase a '03 front bumper along with a c-one style front lip thats supposed to be coming out in urethane.

Should i sell the cf front lip and buy a '03 front bumper, c one style lip, and pay another $400 to paint it or just keep the front lip?

i would say depends on what the rest of the car looks like. but im sort of in the same boat. i'd like to get rid of my kaminari front and rear and just get a carbon fiber front lip. but i'd have to get a stock rear bumper some how.

btw is that lip made by seibon? how much did you get it for and from where?

first off, keep the rear-it is nice. secondly, I believe rich bought the lip from seibon when they still had them in stock for $375 (and before anybody whines about the cost, think about the fact that you dont have to get it painted).
Also, Idesigns was supposedly going to make a batch but flaked out.

i saw pics of the car.. i LOVE the way it looked when you bought it.. i say keep it that way.. but thats my opinion..

i also like the c-one front lip.. but if you already got the CF lip.. keep it..

If your worried about scraping......The c-one lip sits about 1.5 inches lower then the stock '03 bumper and I already scrape with the stock bumper on TRD springs :(
