Pics of my "other" brand v-style lip

Update: new pics after I tweaked the placement. Looks great IMO!

Actually looks pretty good. Even the Vorsteiner one doesn't fit like OEM anyways.....

I think you're right.... Not sure how to do that now with screws in place.... I guess I could go from screws to silicone/some sort of glue?

Not to get off topic but I saw your car, LOVE it, made me order the rear diffuser, but i still have the authentic poly front lip $1,100 after paint for the front and only $595 for the rear in full carbon.

Well since i didnt have anyone helping me i used double sided tape first..... took it on and off a few times while stepping back to look at it and adjusted it perfect.... made pilot holes for the screws.... took the lip back off.... removed the tape then put it back on with the screws going into my premade pilot holes . A little tedious, took me like 30-45 min. but this method allowed for perfect fitment

The lip looks great, if you would have said its a VRS lip I would have believed it. Overall the car looks awesome the 19" Volk wheels looks sportier than the bling 20" you had on before. Well done, are you going to get the rear diffuser?

Thanks! Lip does look very good. I'm just about an 1/8" off - damn it!

Anyway, I like the Volk's better too. I thought I wanted the "bling" look but in the end I'm a performance kind of person.... My next mod will be 3.62 when I get the $$$ so the diffuser will have to wait!

Thanks again,
BC

Looks more like an adjustment issue rather than the lip not fitting well. The real lip can look off too if you don't know how to adjust it.

Yup, good install is key.

Here is Legit Vorsteiner lip, with same gap problems.

Hi all,

In all honesty, the pics make it look worse than it really is. It's noticable if you walk from side to side looking at the alignment. So if you're looking for it - you'll see it. In any event, I'll probably go to a body shop and get it adjusted this time as I don't want to try to drill more holes in the lip or the bumper.

Offset is 22mm and it's a 9.5" rim.

Contact jl-motoring at info@jl-motoring.

Thanks,
BC

PS - just checked my email and had a note from jl-motoring with suggestions on making an adjustment based on seeing this post. That's what I call good customer service!
