carbon fiber lip
I saw at the ecelica store, that they carry a carbonfiber lip. does anyone know when a new shipment is going to come in?

and for those who has that item, is there any problems with it ? for example being to low or anything ?

i also have a kaminari kit does it fit it ??

If you mean the carbon fiber airsplitter, it's $330, and you can get it here

If you want a true carbon fiber lip, seibon carries a wings west lip in true carbon fiber for $400

Yeah I think you mean the Carbon Fiber Splitter ... it's a universal item that usually needs to be cut to length for the bumper.

Uh it will extend your front bumper by a few inches to you'll have to be a bit more careful while driving over bumps in the road.

As for does it fit on the kaminari ... I have no idea, although I too have the kaminari front bumper and I'm thinking about getting it and trying it.

Maybe I'll get it, do a test fit without doing anything and then return it if it looks like crap ... Isaac want do you think ??

Just a heads-up... it wont fit on all bumpers unless you do some MAJOR modification to your bumper...

its NOT flat on the veilside...

its also NOT flat on the Invader...

Kaminari is another bumper that is NOT flat across the bottom...
Linked Image

Notice on the Blitz, it's flat across the bottom...
Linked Image

its also flat across the bottom of the K2...
Linked Image

TRD is also flat across the bottom...

Yeah I was looking at that earlier, even though the kaminari isn't completely flat on the bottom, it's really not that bad.

There's only a little rise in the middle, no where near as much as the Veilside or Invader. Might be able to just work around it and have a small gap there confused

We test-fitted the Carbon Fiber splitter on a Kaminari car, it didn't look too good. Darren, save your money. It only works best with flat front bumpers like the TRD one.

Notice the angle... it would most likely tear OFF if going on freeway, because it would become a wing and not a splitter
