I have seen both 9-3 and 9-5 with a very similar piece so check both...
I couldn't afford 150$ + paint so I went the ghetto way and here is what it turned out like... not as good as the CATERA V one but o well cant beat the 14$... LOL

well its not hard its actually some sort of foam which is ok by me because it would flex if you were to scrape it and the flat black is kinda nice under there, it would be much nicer if it was shiny and stuff but flat black is more rugged and also if you ever rip it apart new one will be only 14$ away... Sometimes you have to be creative to stay ahead of the game.... I was considering the mach1 lip which goes for about 80-100 and then I saw the one I got on a mustang and realized how much money I would have wasted on it...

I think I posed a link with a how to around here if anyone is interested to see how it all goes together.

nope no rear spoiler for me. never been that big of a fan of it. i actually need to get my trunk repainted. im having some problem with the clear coat bubbling up off the paint. next mod inline though is the blacked out grill. then maybe window tint if i get around to it.

i also had an extra piece that i held up to the sides and the back. I actually liked the way it looked on the sides and will prob. be doing it pretty soon. ill post pics when its done. As far as the back, i tried to hold up the extra piece but could get it to line up properly due to the sharp curve on the back bumper. It just looked funny, so i dont think ill be doing that.

Woooow you guys those lips look pretty bad ass, and I dont care what anyone says but these 14$ lips beat the 145$ ones big time... in fact I like how the lip being that its not quite a part of the bumper and the flat black color on there... it looks bad ass in my book...

As for the rear lips IDK about that it might look kinda funny but I will have to see one to decide... Glad to see you guys are making a good use of the info that I provided... I didnt think anyone else was gonna do it...

It does look much better then what I expected but I think I will stick with the front piece for now.. Got other projects to worry about..
