Quality looks phenomenal. For the price... meh. Subtle aesthetic mod though.

I'll get those angles taken tomorrow when the lip goes on the car.

Got it installed this afternoon, and it looks really good I have some iPhone shots that I'll upload shortly while I wait for the high-res ones from Anthony@EAS.

Here are some pictures of the installed lip taken with my iPhone. The folks at EAS took better ones with a real camera that should be going up after the weekend. I'll post those up, along with final impressions of the lip, when they're ready.

ehhh... for $500-750, it's not a bad mod. But IMO, for $2000 it is probably the worst lip out there from a value to aesthetic perspective.

RE: Value - Don't you have an Innotech exhaust? Hehe...just saying : P

This is less than half the price of the real one which no one can get. Not for everyone...

Revinora makes a center-bumper lip (R-CRT) also for much less for people that are looking for a cheaper alternative.

This lip secures onto the bumper using OEM equipment: five screws into the bumper cover, two bolts into the oil cooler, and double-sided tape.

It's very secure.

I do have the innotech f1, and as far as I know, no exhaust out there sounds like it except for maybe kreissieg (spelling?). It also is pretty much 2 exhausts in one. The difference in sound between open and closed valves is so big it pretty much is like bolting on a different exhaust.

I stand by my statement on the absurd price.

$2000 is rather pricey, like pretty much any CF product or body modification for this car. But this is pretty much the only option out there for those who really hunger for the CRT-style lip. I can't think of anyone else who has the sources to make a 100% accurate replica of a real OE CRT lip.

The fact that RKP and IND were able to do this with the E90 CRT just recently being released is rather impressive.

Ehh, looks are subjective, and I think it looks retarded. Certainly not functional, and definitely not worth the price tag. It's sad what people will pay to put quality nonsense on their cars. Next.

I bet you iND is making less on these lips than Innotech on your exhaust.

So what is the difference exactly?

As far as I know, they already sold their whole first shipment. Lower pricing would have been a mistake based on that fact alone.
