As far I know there are many of you have been waiting our lip kits forever, and I am pretty sure there are some of you have heard what's going on between me and my current manufacturer relationship. To cut story short, I got screwed by their ridiculousness pricing jacked up with fiberglass material and stupid reasons which complete not making sense to me at all. I am very reluctant to sell this crap with 250 + shipping..



Now, I am seriously to move the production to oversea. I have pretty much nail down the price/material for 04-06 guys lip kits. Price is very awesome, we will be looking for Polypropylene (PP) material and 250 shipped( to the 48 states) per lip (either front or rear) If purchase both, there will be a good amount discount.

Realistically, there is an issue here which is time frame. How many of you can actually wait another 2-3 months. I will be sending OEM bumpers and Geniune lips via DHL to save us some time. I am doing my best, in a moment I will need you guys feedback. No jokers here please.


here is some PP V.S. PU

PU (Poly Urethane)

· 1. Toughness is good; weight is light; thickness is thin;

· 2. Too soft; Easy to be out of shape;

· 3. Expensive Mold Cost ;

· 4. Craft: High temperature injection


PP (Polypropylene)

· 1.Toughness is excellent; weight is light; thickness is thin;

· 2.Resistant to Corrosion and Abrasion and not easy be out of shape;

· 3. Reasonable Price; Cost performance is High;

· 4. PP material get close to the original refitting material

· 5. Craft: PP body kit request strict environmental and Superb technology.

· 6.Even though in extremely temperature (-40°--+80°) it still work;




Here are some pics that we got installed from the current manufacturer lip. These are fiberglass, and the rear have some gap. Front is excellent.

TDMi lips v.s Geniune lips

I think that people would wait and pay a little extra to have a good product that fits and looks right.

That is one of the reasons why people pay and wait on Sharkey's products.

Will the rears come with the rubber surround like the Genuine lip does? Just curious. Front looks great. I don't think people will mind waiting for quality and price.

Manufacturing problems can be a real hassle. I think you're earning a lot of respect from we forum members by doing everything you can to get us a high quality product at the best price possible instead of just taking the easy way out.

I am very interested in both lips, and since it will be a minute before I spend funds on cosmetics, waiting will not be an issue for me.

Great job looking out for us Spec owners!
