I actually like that aggressive style; plus it's polypropylene ... No first hand experience with that particular product though. Maybe be the guinea pig and let us know? Where's James (jconnway)?!? LOL

Edges look too sharp for the Accord... I have seen a similar kit on sedan, didn't look good

I volunteer to be the guinea pig lol. I like the lip as well; it's cheaper compare to the OEM and it's avail instantly. I'm gonna put this in my New Year resolution's list as well lol. Do we need to paint it since it's already match our car color? Keep me poster, man. Oh and a member in this forum posted this as well

I have the HC1 lip, you need a heat gun, loads of doublesided tape and a lot of patience and it still won't sit super flush on the corners. It still looks cool as **** though from certain angles, but from the top, you can see gaps.

Pic please. Does it fit easily? I've heard some people have to use extra forces to make some rear window visor stay contour to the window.

difficulty depends on how perfect you want the fit. Mine is half assed but still looks good until your right on top of it. I want to remove it and redo but I don't have the time.

Ill post more pics tomorrow

Yeah, I see what you meant. I'll be super OCD about that as well lol Can it be done all by myself or do I need another person to hold it? I think you should try to fit around the front of the lip 1st then working toward the 2 ends, so you might eliminate the gaps cause be pushing the 2 ends. Keep me posted with the progress, man.

Thats what I did, I mounted it in the center first and then worked my way it around, then you need to heat up the ABS plastic or whatever the **** to get it to mold the rest of the way, the gaps were way worse without the heat gun, I might realign it, but for now, it's on there

I did it by myself, front bumper is easy to remove to do it inside with.

I bought it for like 60$ from a shop near where i live and its the exact same fit as stevenR's. It doesnt fit it perfectly but you cant tell unless you actually go up to it and look at it.

So you're saying that there is no way this lip will fit better even with the heat gun and such?

No those were from an experiment I'm still contemplating that experiment too.

You could make it fit wit the heat gun but it is going to take a decent amount of time.

Mmmm it prolly would, my car is black so i cant really see the difference. i can take some pics of the front lip if anybody wants to see.

The only thing the guy did when installing it was screw in a couple of bolts on each side along with the ones it came with

put it under your bumper that thing looks more like a splitter/diffuser than a lip.
