Car- IS300
Car Year - 2004
Part type - Greddy rep front lip
Part make - VIS
Part construction - Polyfiber
Source - Vendor on my.is
Price - $230 shipped
Fitment - Sloppy at best; plenty of gaps here in there, no modifications needed though.
Installation - from 1(easiest) to 10(hardest - 2, just make sure you got a second hand... it's a big piece.
Durability - it's a thin a$$ fiberglass, what do you expect? the first one cracked upon arrival, and the second one cracked (piece went missing) on the car within months from just slightly hitting a curb when parking (and it wasn't even me driving ) .
Notes - The aggressive look is almost unmatched by any other front lip. If you're a DD with sami-low ride, I'd say go for it... it's cheap compared to most other things. If you're DD but slammed or looking for a show quality piece, I'd say look elsewhere.

Car- IS300
Car Year - 2004
Part type - Type-R front lip
Part make - eBay lip (not sure who the vendor is)
Part construction - ABS Plastic
Source - Friend
Price - almost free
Fitment - not bad if you really work hard on making it fit right. it's not very obvious how high or low the lip needs to sit on the bumper, you'll just have to feel it out.
Installation - from 1(easiest) to 10(hardest - 7, it's very tricky to line it up and need to drill holes on the side and bottom of the bumper to make it hold. A second hand is a MUST!
Durability - ABS is supposedly very durable compared to Fiberglass, but many people told me it wouldn't be long before I break it, and it wasn't. I managed to crack mine within a few months from hitting debris on the highway.
Notes - I got this lip because it was dirt cheap and I always liked how it looked from some reason, but for practicality purposes, I would shy away.

Car- IS300
Car Year - 2004
Part type - Side skirts
Part make - RMM
Part construction - poly
Source - sales thread
Price - $400 shipped (new)
Fitment - Great fitment! slight gap by the front fenders, but otherwise great.
Installation - from 1(easiest) to 10(hardest) - 3, you need to make sure you peal the adhesive tape AS you install it and not pull it out at once and try to slap it on. Make sure you follow through with a heat gun to make sure the adhesive holds well. Adding the screws on the ends is optional, imo. a second hand is a needed.
Durability - very solid piece, so far so good
Notes - it's a simple as this, you get what you pay for. that being said, I think side skirts are usually the least effected by mishaps so any other product might be just as good.

Car- IS300
Car Year - 2001
Part type - 4pc. Body Kit
Part make - BN Sports
Part construction - Fiberglass
Source - www.bnsports.us
Price - $1790
Fitment - Excellent
Installation - Simple if you know what you're doing. But would be even easier with a second set of hands for the rear. The sides are the one piece that is NOT pre-drilled. This is so that the owner can angle the sides further out from the car or in depending on just how aggressive your wheel fitment is.
Durability - Very solid and rigid. Very thick fiberglass and 3 layers think around tabs and mounting points.
Notes - This kit is VERY aggressive and not for those not used to driving slammed. Front end is 3" from the ground. I needed to shave a paper thin layer of material in the hole for the fog light.
