Kouki 180SX aero thread II

Hello everyone.
Currently I am shopping for the Type-X lip, and here is a list of places I found that still sell it, or at least have it listed on their website.


OEM

Bodykits.biz - 587.48$
- JDM Nissan Parts JDM S13 180sx Kouki Optional Front Lip :: JDM Nissan Parts :: JDM Parts :: Bodykits.biz - www.bodykits.biz

The Dori Shop - 525$ (shipped)
The Dori Shop OnLine

Phase2 Motortrend - 399$
OEM Type-X Optional Front Bumper Spoiler


Replica

GT-1 - 195.48$
GT-1 Motorsports Kouki Style Front Lip Spoiler RPS13

Modiride - 175$
Modiride - AE86 S13 240sx Body Kits and Aero Parts



If you know of any other places, please let me know.
I would prefer to buy the OEM lip, although the cost of the replicas is tempting. GT-1 makes quality products I would assume, does anyone on here have experience with the lip?
Any input is welcome.


Of course feel free to sidetrack this thread and start posting pictures of cool kouki 180SX cars.

I'm willing to bet that the shops that still have it listed just simply have not updated their records.

If a brand new OEM lip came up for sale before I'm ready to buy SexyStyle, best believe I will jump on it. But in the meantime, dare to dream:

Also, what is the best way to remove and reattach the Nissan emblem on the front bumper? I will need to paint the bumper, but I would like to put the emblem back on afterward.

its either double sided taped or clip that hooks on you might need to pinch it with a plier and push out

its really just the paint that stand a car out.

you can have a primmed up type x
there is no shape to the car everything looks flat.cant see curves nothing.
or even with cheap paint wit not much gloss.

and have a nice painted type x next to it and you can really see the difference

rims size and ofset too

How was the fitment on the modiride? Im thinking about picking one up. You can always reinforce the lip with fiberglass

Fitment is actually good.

Customer service and quality of the lip is totally shit.

No idea why another company doesn't start selling replica lips.

Probably because no one has actually gone up to a company to ask for it. By the way I just pmed ChaserAero about it. So hopefully they will see we have interest in a replica lip

I'll make it, I'll even do a GB on it so you guys can save some coin. All I need is for someone to find/ get me the lip perhaps and I'll make it. If someone has it, and can provide me with it, I'll give you a carbon one at cost.

Email me directly with your Full name, Address, phone, and zilvia.net user name and I'll compile a list. If it looks like its something that'll take off, I'll start the GB thread on it. I'd say PM me, but my PM box fills so fast, email is easier.

[email protected]

...and just a best guess...$149 for FRP, $299 for carbon would be approx. retail.
