Arkym Lip Install > Powerbeast

Got my hands on an Arkym Lip and installed it on user Powerbeast's car today. Woke up early in the morning to the sound of his Eisenmann Race exhaust.

The lip is built pretty well. Fitment was spot on. There's a minor difference in gap on the sides, but I believe it was due to how it was installed. You only have one chance to put it on perfect due to the molding tape Here are some closeups and photos after the install. The lip shown is the 1x1 single sided CF.

You guys have a bet going who's going to be the first to scrape that beautiful lip? JK...

Looks awesome, seriously it does seem to be dangerously low enough to get scraped pretty easily...

I like the clean look without the plate too but due to BMW I have screw wholes in my bumper.
