lips are hard to come by, you'll probably just have to buy one and get it paint matched. will make all the difference on the car though.

the stage1 APR tune really wakes the car up as well, and I saw an improvement in overall mileage. i can't remember if i have any left over parts or anything from mine, if i do i'll bring them out sunday and give them to you.

Agreed the lip makes all the difference . I have one on my wag N and it's look way better. Even tho mine is trashed on one side Still glad I have one. I'm on the hunt for a new one as well.

I might go back to the junk yard and get the red one there. It'll end up just getting zip ties together.

Been doing stuff to the car. Dash can and back up camera are in. The jensen I put in ended up going kaput when I was in sac. So I bought a Pioneer with GPS and it's awesome. Things got put on hold this past weekend when my dog of 14 years took a turn for the worst and I was forced to put him to sleep Sunday night.
