im not 100 percent sure but i thought the OEM lip kits were originally made from ABS plastic......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 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.

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