I want to get a lip spoiler for my 05 s40.I would like to get a decent quality one that wont brake the bank,and hopefully can get painted.I have see some that require no drilling,that would be great if possible.So that being said;whats out there for me?
There are some universal type ones that are on ebay for super cheap, but they are on the small side. There is the European style T5 trunk lid, but that will set you back a couple hundred at least, before painting and shipping. There is the Evolve one, which has to be at least $250 before paint.<br>Or you can hold on for a month or so and I will be coming out with a fiberglass and CF version that is very similar to the euro lip.<br>It really depends on what style you are going for, but all the ones listed attach via high strength tape.
An inch or two. I am currently researching the best way to possibly incorporate into the design some way to cover the holes, but the best (not cheapest) option would be to have them filled in via weld and repaint the trunk at the same time you get the lip painted...or just find a 2.4 that doesn't have holes from the wing and swap 'em. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">
Fiberglass would probably be around $100, CF double that. I could get it painted professionally at my trusted shop as long as I had your paint code, but I recommend you take it to a shop with your car so they can be sure they get the color match correct: sometimes the paint code isn't enough for a perfect match.<p>Comparable lips are $200 or more, so I think the price is pretty fair.
yet another wonderful project done by Carrera <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>How are the C30 lips looking for the GTG? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">
Front lip I hope to have pics up in a few days of my own car with a set painted, hopefully by Thursday, trunk won't be ready for a month or so. A one man operation goes slowly, unfortunately.<p>EDIT: Yeah, Kyle, I could use an assistant. Don't quite trust my gf's abilities in this department, but maybe I can train her to get good with composites so my life is easier, lol.
