HONDA OEM = yes.
Other brands = who knows, most likely Fiberglass or worse..ABS plastic.

the hfp kit is similar in construction to our oem bumpers, but stiffer. naturally, the weakest link will crack first--but these are better than ANY aftermarket PU you'll ever find.

but youz a g changy, you already know how do drive a slammed car

im not 100 percent sure but i thought the OEM lip kits were originally made from ABS plastic...... Wheelman are you 100 percent sure that oem kits are polyurethane? I know for a fact Hondas OEM bumpers are ABS plastic.

oh? ..I Always "heard" they were poly. Sorry But, I'm not 100% sure they are poly. Who would dish out that much money for non-poly HONDA OEM kits?

The OEM lip is polyurethane...

...And by polyurethane I mean some form of plastic that bends like polyurethane and has no relation to the ABS plastic that is on eBay.

the reason Honda uses ABS plastic instead of Poly is to cut down on material costs, poly costs more. and abs is also alot easier to fix. poly might be more flexible but it also tends to "sag" or lose fitment especially under the sun.

there are different types of ABS plastic. unfortunatly the ABS on Ebay is relative to PVC piping. pretty stiff and shatters easily.

That's what I figured... Polyurethane is a variation of ABS isn't it? Either way, the OEM lip kit is bendy ass plastic that won't break easily. Pretty much the same material as the front bumper.

Those guys are good.

I got my rear lip from them and shipping was quick.

I paid alot more than that too. I got my skirts for cheap though ~150 shipped? and the front lip I got with a spare front bumper for $120 shipped.
