So it cost me $180 for the lip and shipping. It was shipped USPS and custom/duty was $28. So grand total $200, money saved I used at the body shop!
That's not too bad at all! meh, guess i'll have to bite the bullet then for mine! ah well. atleast i'll be able to provide some feedback to the GTA community. I'm located north of Toronto too, to be specific Markham..I usually get hassled with duties. i dont understand it really. My best friend when he orders parts for his 350z he pays close to nothing and lives downtown. Thanks for the response and keep up the great work! Car looks fantastic.

I made it work, but i would not call it good fitment out fo the box, esp the edges, as it looks very tacked on. I also didnt use the screws and brackets that came with it, nothing seemed ti line up correctly.

But value for money, u cant beat it. i think its great and looks awesome on (despite the cheap looking edges).

Tried to measure but tip was in the way. Looks to be approximately 10-10.5 in.... Why do you need that measurement? Just curious

I ordered a MyRide diffuser and it took me a few weeks before I installed it, but when I first got it the fitment was off on the left and on the inside exhaust area (touched my HKS exhaust) ...And then once I finally got it painted and installed I was so happy and it looked so good that even the shop that did all the work said the fitment for a replica was so good that they wanted me to send them pics! I will post pics of it soon.

Maybe its just me, everyone else is giving it a 9/10, with that said this is my first time doing a body part myself, so take my complaints with a grain of salt.

on to the pics.

fitment of tips is tight, but it doesn't touch.
Now for the gaps, I have filled the gaps with silicon sealant, u can clearly see where large amounts were needed. I am currently repainting the bumper, and painting over the sealant in black to match the color of the car for a more flush look. if u look closely u can see where the gaps are, The gaps are dependent on how u line it up the diffuser. Its also very possible, my piece got bent during shipping, because it was packed w no bubble wrap or any form of protection.. so that could be another reason why my fitment was off compared to everyone else.
