I looked at eBay for the front lip.. Honestly, I don't trust the sellers when it comes to certain items. I know some eBay sellers have them less expensive but you might end up spending more money prepping before paint.

I found Extreme Dimensions, and been going back and forth with them.. they have the Duraflex brand which IMO (strictly my opinion) seems better for quality and durability. I will see how good it is when I make the purchase and receive the item.

I have the guy's contact info if you want it.. just PM me.

Also another member suggested WALD for the front lip.. first I've heard of them but I found another thread on here that listed the website for them.. might as well check them out.

Here is the English WALD website: http://www.wald.co.jp/english/carrange.html

Great thanks for the info guys, I decide to keep my e65 as a weekend car so now I want to update the look, does the acs front lip lower the front clearance much?? I want the front bumper to look lower, I installed lowering springs but wish the felt bumper was lower

Hey Ricardo,
Got a website for them? I googled them and got some pages that weren't available. I'll check them out as well.
