Fits awful. I got that same one shipped from Taiwan, took about 2 months to show up.

It was cracked in shipping, but I still test fit it on the car just to see. Fit isn't remotely acceptable.

All these rep sellers are using photos of a genuine Vorsteiner lip on a car to represent it.

Its laying in my garage if you want it, but it would need to be repaired and painted.

At least you won't have to deal with them shipping it in a tissue box where it will obviously get damaged in shipping... but I can tell you none of the ebay reps fit well.

I've bought both of the different variants that were offered by various sellers. Both were cracked in shipping, neither fit well enough to even consider using.

lol, I absolutely agree. however, I have also spent many hours getting cf parts from really expensive companies to fit right. I don't think it comes down to price, it basically comes down to how much fiddling you are comfortable doing yourself or paying a shop to do for you. these parts can be delicate, and like you, I have had parts damaged in shipping because shippers aren't as careful as you'd like - even when something is marked "fragile"

I bought the OEM front lip and it took 10 min to install. I know because it is OEM before I get broad side blasted, but I just went through the trouble with CF mirror covers and decklid Spoiler both showed up damaged and returned them and bought OEM and could not be happier. also check out RW carbon fiber they seem to be runner up to OEM.

Good to know, thanks. At this point I'm considering the M performance lip , or the 3D design lip.

I have the rep after breaking my original one...Might be hard to see the lip vs bumper since my car is black but im happy with fitment on mine, but also depends on your body shop mine took a bit of loving to get a flush fitment but my guy it done for me.

elg0rd0yadigg Is that a carbon fiber lip though, or one of the polyurethane ones? Poly would likely be easier to fit if it wasn't just right.

Both of the carbon lips I ordered were very poor fit, not something you could change, and damaged in shipping.
