GT4 rep lip on eBay

Hi all, since there seem to be virtually no info on rep lips, I decided buy a gt4 rep lip on eBay.

After seeing a few eBay posts and talking to vendors, one struck me as the one I wanted partly cause the seller was advertising installed fasteners on the lip itself. So I took the plunge and $550 later shipped the below shows up

A quick review: the lip is made of cf with an inner gel coating, sort of like a releasing agent. There might be fiberglass below for added strength but overall build quality is 10/10.

Weight seems to light as well, don't have a scale handy but I will post weight later.

Packaging was excellent as seen in pics. The lip was wrapped in that white plastic, followed by two layers of bubble warp, all in another blue plastic bag, in that giant cardboard box.

Once I fit it to the car I should be able to tell if it's crap or not.

Enjoy the few pics I took.

dang that looks nice! Like opihi5 I have less than 3 inches of clearance on the front with my current lip, so i'd never buy a super nice one. I scrape all the time and just have my splitter sprayed with engine enamel.

Let us know how this turns out and holds up to scrapes. It looks great

wow that looks good, even comes with the real brake ducts, not like some other reps with only the openings in the front but nowhere to attach the hoses.

Extremely great price and the quality looks superb!! If the fitment is great....I predict the eBay seller will raise his price once he starts to receive an influx of buyers!! can't wait to see the end results OP!

Looks great -- too bad there isn't a non-carbon version. I'd be fine with the same lip in black plastic to save some money.

That looks amazing for a rep! Completely identical to a GT4 lip (rep as well from a well known company on here, but 3 times the price of yours) I installed for a customer not too long ago. Let me know if you need any tips installing it.

I think it's the second one. I still haven't had a chance to install it, I did however swap to true rear coilover, swapped master brake cylinder, flushed brakes and I think that's it. Getting ready for Rallye California and leaving tomorrow morning, heading over to HRE open house. I'm hoping I can get it installed next week.
