Check out the Revinora lip. Not an exact replica, but it may be a suitable alternative for you.

OP, I like your screen name. When I see nuespeed, I think yellow corrado vr6...ahhh the good old days.

Back on topic, I think it's overrated, it doesn't really fill the gaps or look functional as other lips do...

IND is trying to get their hands on one to create a rep. Their GTS lip rep is indistinguishable from the OEM unit, so assuming they can successfully import one, they'll have what you're looking for.

Otherwise Slek is also working on a rep, but it leaves much to be desired.

On that basis I wonder how did Starck come up with their rep / proto or did they just fabricate it on what they thought it should look like

As far as the GTS and CRT replica lips are concerned, I have to assume that only IND's is based off of having had physical position of the OEM counterpart (though again, they're still actively trying to get a hold of a CRT lip).

You can buy the Revinora R-CRT lip which I personally think looks better.

I think you have it mixed the up. The CRT lip has no openings on the sides.

the lip doesn't fill the area where the brake ducting would go. all the other lips on the market do, well less the one i already pictured in my first post.
