Well, I'm really at a loss of words here guys. I fell in love . . IN LOVE . . . with the GV front lip for the 04-06 modle year HB! Its soo low key and streamlined on the MZ3 its just amazing. If anyone knows of any other front lip that even looks anything close to that of the GV front . . . please let me know.

Yeah I'd rather have the DAMD lip too.. good thing I traded in my 04 for an 09 ;). Anyways, the closest thing to the GV for 07+ would probably be the OEM lip. Not quite the same, but similar.

Take an unpainted OEM 07+ lip to a body shop and have them fill that retarded hole before painting it, then you'll have almost the same look :)

anyone have a link to the DAMD lip? I don't think I've seen that lip quite yet.

I've seen the oem lip and that actually looks really nice, but $500 is mad expensive for a front lip . . and i think its unpainted. How much does it cost to have that piece painted? cause I know this ain't going to be cheap.

For me its like $1000 for a front lip or a whole new paint job for my 240Z. ( MAACO i know, but it needs PAINT ) priorities fellas!!

Argh the lip for the 07+ is so ugly imo. I am with the OP. Please make a GV one or the speed3 GV one for the hatches. Thanks :)

The choices for a lip for an 07 + is the most frustrating thing ever. I am right there with you -the Damd lip doesnt match the lines of the car like the GV. If there was a GV lip I would buy it immediately

Is there a reasonable way to get one in North America? I haven't seen one.
