Lower Lip on Turbo's front bumper.

Will a GT2 lip fit on a stock Turbo front bumper?

The aero kit lips really looks good on the TT. It's the best looking lip out there.

what's the difference with the two lips - stock black plastic vs aerokit lip?

in terms of clearance, price, etc....

If your stock turbo lip is chewed up, the factory aerokit is going to be worst. Go with the clean look of the C4S lip.

I agree 100%.

Dock, you have seen my C4S lip replacement. It really helps with the front look of the car.

I'll bring it by again if you really want to take a closer look.

The TT lip looks like a very cheap piece on a very expensive car. The C4S lip, on the other hand, is constructed very well and "looks" like a more quality part.

Not true, the way the aerokit front spoiler is designed it will not fold over like the stock spoiler. If the aero spoiler does scrap it will scrape underneath and will not be noticeable. Mine scrapes consistently and is not less for wear unless you look underneath. Overall, it will outlast the stock version.

I think that it is listed for sub $200 (maybe $170 or so?). I thought that I paid closer to $130 after my friend's autobody discount.

My experience with the aerokit spoiler is the same as Oak's. Mine doesn't show scrapes at all even though I've had a few, unlike the factory spoiler that I had've before.
