lol, this is jokes. You're having fun with the car by experimenting. Nothing wrong with that. Now, how do we get that middle gap to disappear?

Why you didn't bolt it on properly from the bottom is beyond me. Great idea, horrible execution.

What's your deal? Did you come here expecting high praise because you took a lip that was made for another car and butchered it to fit your car? Does that warrant an automatic circle jerk in the VW scene or something? Iíll give you kudos for trying something outside the box, but Iím not going to tell you it looks good until it actually looks good. Finish it up, make it look good then report back to get the props you were looking for.

And for the record I have a cut up Volvo lip on my E30 so I definitely donít mind this sort of thing

Not one of my E30's ever had a Volvo lip.

I don't think he was saying he has a Volvo lip so you think he's cool. I'm pretty sure he said that so you know he's not hating on your lip because he's a purist, but because it looks bad.

Good one. I already know it doesn't look the best, it's a work in progress at the moment. Im just working on getting something nobody on the road has. Sucks that you don't like it, I'll save you some tears k?

Stop being so defensive. If you read what I posted you'll see that I never even said I don't like it.

The only reason I even look at this thread is because I think that when you fill in that gap (properly) it will look pretty good, and I'm waiting to see a picture of it.
