the lower one is ... but when u see it right there - doesnt look tht huge. i guess u say tht because its not actually fitted- i just used Velcro to see wht it looks like and it still wasnt holding straight up. once its drilled - it should be a straight fit.
Universal APR
stil thinking though....

What transmission is your civic mate? And would you have some more pictures of it please? I'd love to know what you've installed on it's exterior and interior (no need for engine specs)

I believe it is a Civic 1999 as you've just posted in a thread for it.

APR has universal lips with canards in diff sizes. They give a good flow, dont look big and are zexy.

The current ones are big, whether mounted or not plus the angle isnt good.

hey Tamu - that is the very same lip iv been looking for. iv done my research and they dont make that for my very specific year. So i was really dissapointed.
i plan on getting a CF lip though later on, n then mayb putting the CF canards as well.
Does anyone know how i could get the letter to change my color to black and blue instead of just blue at the moment? would be much appreciated.
thankyou ....

I'm not talking about those huge-%#%$ kits though a CF lip-kit would be great. I still don't think the canards look great, with/without CF lip.
