Adjustable Front Lip

Hello to all!
Does anyone know where to find a carbon fiber adjustable race lip for an 04' STi?

Heh, that came to mind, but I was trying to avoid any self-botching. If it's the only option, I 'll give it a try.
Thanks dude.

That was the original intent. I come from a PTG BMW background, and I'm now switching to AWD vehicles. Could find no better than the STi. Am moving to SC in less than a year, which puts me closer to Road Atlanta. The car will see a good amount of track time, and will be my daily driver. A nice lip spoiler (particularly the chargespeed model) would compliment the car well, but I am somewhat apprehensive to purchase because I am not a fan of most mounts. If the aforementioned model is both BOLTED AND 3M'd, it'll do. Dive planes can be added post insallation on front and rear bumpers. I was looking at these actual pieces:
Chargespeed Front Lip/Half Spoiler http://www.japanparts.com/Pic/pic103/003-015.jpeg
Aqua Rear Bumper http://www.japanparts.com/Pic/pic105/001-004.JPG
SYMS Side Steps http://www.japanparts.com/Pic/pic007/090-012.JPG
APR Racing GTC-200 WRX-Spec Rear Wing http://www.aprperformance.com/produc...rtNo=AS-105914
An STi Roof Ventilator will come as the car grows competitively, as will an aftermarket hood. All engine and suspension mods are in the works. Up/Downpipe, Boost controller, etc. Suspension will most likely be Tein adjustable coilovers with driver adjustment module.
Let me know what you guys/girls think.

The Aqua bumper is a fairly solid piece with some slats cut out. Saves no more than a few grams of fiberglass, but the look and slight "tail"effect on the corners adds some eye candy. The roof scoop helped a lot in the BMW cockpit; It can be used to get a nice blast of cool air in the cabin, as spent fuel and C.M. aren't good for the driver. Can be used to cool liquids, or can even be routed as a secondary brake or rear-tranny air cooler. Very expensive to be done properly, and near impossible to reverse. It'll be applied only if the car becomes a track horse.
Any idea about the fitment of the lip spoiler? Tape? Bolt? Both?

I would do both, since I like that stuff to be nice and solid, but if you are gonna be taking it on and off then just tape it. And I thought you were going to get a fake a roof scoop, lol. Nothing wrong with real ones.

Front lip and side steps will come only with tape. The rear bumper will come with the clips and everything, and the spoiler will come with the bolts. I dont know if you need to drill any new holes for the spoiler or not, you should check into that.

Supposedly, the spoiler mounts to factory STi just fine. Supposedly. There will be bolts in that lip if it kills me, lol. Taped skirts are acceptable. I just want very sturdy equip. I'm used to fac-spec race stuff, not aftermarket. Hope it turns out well, lol.
