Actually, the gentleman in Texas who imported a CRT earlier this year is technically the first person in the country with a CRT lip

I just realized that that the very first pictures of the CRT that was released by BMW had the front lip in 1x1 weave, but it looks like the real production model was in 2x2 as shown in your photos.

Interesting that they decided to switch it up. RKP should make a 1x1!

Most likely not, judging by how far the CRT lip comes out on the sides.

Not sure about this. I think it may....and it would look really hot.

Yeah, I think they might fit, actually. I should have checked to see if EAS had any in stock yesterday so we could test the fitment.

Either way, I think it might look a bit cluttered.
