I had this lip. Fitment was 7/10. It split a little when I removed it. It's not the strongest lip.

I replaced it with a used Vorsteiner Poly lip that I had painted to match the car. Fitment is 10/10 and it is really durable.

I wouldn't spend a fortune on a lip, it is pretty easy to damage.

I have the Vorsteiner one and it took me less than 60 minutes, by myself to install. Very simple and painless. Lining up was the only real hard part and I was off a little but it sees winter duty here so I dont really care. lol

Slightly OT:

Depending on where you live, front lips can see some damage. While I love the look, I have repaired mine 7 times!

I also have the Voistiner Polly lip and love it because it won't shatter or crack.

I have the same lip and I will say the fit was dead on, no gaps anywhere. I drilled and bolted on and it is very sturdy. The carbon fiber is not the best quality, meaning it has developed pinholes all over the place over time but only noticeable when 1ft away from it, and the edges where it meets the bumper were a little rough so i had to sand it smooth and buff it. And it took 6 weeks to arrive since I guess it ships directly from overseas, idk. However, for an item that I feel is disposable because its almost inevitable you will break it, it's a great value.
