But the actual filament was pretty dam good around the curves of the bumper. It was dam near perfect.

I now have a arkym lip and its a JOKE. It meets the fenders edge, but its flimsy compaired to the JL lip. The filament SUCKS @#!*% on mine. Dealing with them is a joke! They told me to have it reinstalled and once it was confirmed my lip had issues, they wouldnt replace it because I had already installed it with set screws.

No lip is perfect so from now one I will only buy replicas. JL is pretty good stuff for the money. If I was to do it again, I would get the JL over the real one. I feel like I got ripped off with the Arkym.
Thanks for your input. That's a shame about the Akrym lip. I don't mind spending for a quality product, and believe in most cases, you get what you pay for, but it doesn't seem so with some of these exterior accessories.

I also read someone had purchased a type II Vorsteiner diffuser and the fit was not at all up to par. Hard to justify spending the extra coin unless I'm absolutely sure fitment is spot on.
