Has anyone seen/used this kit?

I saw this on ebay, and did a quick search here and didnt come up with anything. Maybe someone with better search skillz can find something?
Has anyone seen or used this kit? Looks like an OEM knock off. The seller doesnt have great feed back, and it fiberglass, which kinda blows, but the price seems right. Thoughts? I just cant afford to make that kind of mistake! They have 2 available that I see.

Another thought...I guess what I do not like about the mugen lip and sides is the holes in them. Has anyone done body work to eliminate the holes so its just a solid piece? This would probably look good IMO, any photochoppers out there? Im not too good at it, but Ill give it a try if I can find a pic of a car with mugen lip. And for ppl looking for OEM lip kits, if you can find the part number I can run a parts query on the Honda IN and find out where they are

It is an OEM knock off.

The car pictured is a local Toronto Accords member and his kit is not a knock off. So fitment may not be as good as pictured. And I doubt he allowed them to use his car in the ad.

Bottom line - stay away

Fiberglass lips are a no-no for me, esp. the front lip. I guess you would be fine getting fiberglass sides and rear, but not the front. Also a 95% feed back rating would steer me away too. Overall not worth it imo.

True but if a rock was to hit it it would be game over for that lip. The front is the most vunerable place for anything so therefore he shouldn't skimp on the quailty there. The only time a fiberglass anything is acceptable for the front is if your car is a show car and nothing else. Daily drivers shouldn't get fiberglass front ends or lips. Thats just my .02.

Fixed.

I would be hesitant to buy the OEM knockoff stuff, just like the OEM aftermarket bumper, fitment may not be as perfect as it should be.
