Help Me Pick My Next Lip! Pics Included.

Ok, Here's the deal. I currently have OEM optional Sides and rears with a replica Type R front lip.

But I feel that the front lip is a tad small with the sides and rear for some reason. So I am thinking: Wings West RS1 + OEM Optional Side Skirts+ OEM Optional Rear.

What do you guys think? Heres a pic of my old DC2 with the Wings West RS1:

Not the best pic.




Thanks

Hey thats what i have now minus the sideskirts and rear! are u sure the lip kit aint called "Type M" ? Personally i think thats the best looking lip for a 94 gen and ive tried on others and they all seem out of place. Just get rid of the sides cause they dont match the lip at all! otherwise nice teg

Thanks man. But yes, the kit is indeed a Wings West RS1 which is actually a replica of Mugen. I chose the wings west due to fit and I prefer poly over fiber.

The "type M" is a replica as well of the Mugen Kit. I think they chose M, since the real deal is Mugen. This was my old GSR. I think Ill just give it a try and see how it looks.

Any pics of your car as it sits now? If you have the optional sides and rear, I would just stay with the replica lip and paint it - the WW RS I, lip in my opinion, would not flow well with the sides and valence (i.e. would hang too low). I personally like the look of a cf mugen-style lip (not my car - image pulled from H-T):

Dude, were on the same track. I am thinking of the Mugen lip now after many hours on H-tech and the 94-97 front end thread. Not in CF though. Can't justify spending that much on aesthetics ( yes I do have OEM optional lol).

Heres a craptacular pic of the car:

Shaved moldings, optional kit. I was going to rock the black lip and get spoon mirrors but not feelin the black lip look

Sure Have. I went with the Mugen Lip as well (same as yours). If I didn't have the optional Sides and rear, I would've stuck with the ITR lip.

Where did you get those ambers? They appear smoked.
