Hi, all.
I just received my carbon blitz style front lip.
it didn't come with either screws nor double sided tape..
should I use double sided tape to mount it?
or can I drill holes on carbon stuff? will it crack?

thanks~

You should use 3M tape. I made a thread on the best 3M tape earlier today. Good luck

Post pictures after it is installed

Good luck and hopefully it is a good fitment because you cant really perform surgery on C/F to make it fit. Did you just get the front? What color is your IS?

I just bought my car 3 months ago.. 05 black onyx, e shift.
I'm new to these modifying car stuff. that's why I just got the front lip(not the full kit), trying to see how it feels to have my car modified...I tinted my window and painted my calipers though..

I miss driving stick (for past 9 years) ... ^^ but IS is so fun!!

Looks good on black!

Just drive careful so you dont break it.

I have the VIS cf lip and drilled holes no problem. Just go very slow and drill pilot holes first. If I were you, I would put screws, at least one inside of each wheel well.
