Title: Front Bodykit Lost!
allanmloveday - June 7, 2012 03:29 AM (GMT)
So it looks like i've lost the front part of the body kit that came with my car somewhere in the snow! :(
The weirdest part is, I didn't even hear it come off, I've driven my route back but can't find it. (Will be walking it again tonight)
Does anyone know where I can get one and how much they are???

Wow damn that sucks! I'm taking mine to the snow next month and now I'm worried haha.
I paid about $250 delivered for one from Japan on Yahoo Auctions, otherwise I saw Lexus Blackburn selling new ones for around $400ish recently

bugger. Elegance front lip, damn hard to find.
Are you sure you lost it and it wasn't stolen? Would imagine it'd be pretty hard to loose it without noticing, even in snow. :blink:

I REALLY hope no one has stolen it. It was still on the car last night I believe, and I drove it from home to a friends place this morning to pick them up for work, it's hopefully lying in the road or on the side of it somewhere between the two points!

Almost impossible to buy new. Its called an "elegance lip". That sucks man Ill be pointing my finger at thief's :( If you ran over it you would definitely hear it!

Who makes it? Is it a TRD part? Or does someone else make it.

did you get all the mounts as well because it looks like they have all snapped off aswell should be about 5 of them or where they still attached to the car? i've just finished gluing most of mine back on when i removed it to get the front bar re-sprayed i found most of them broken

those pictures make it look like it is made of FRP.
genuine ones are plastic.

we got some PU plastic front lip coming at the end of this month and you might be interest,not the same style but it made by PU plastic so it's the same plastic that the factory bumper made by as well.
