Yep it's the same. You just can't see it with the lighting (sun was behind the car)

Looks great, guys! I also wanted a front lip (but refused to buy OEM since it sits so low, and my wife drives the car, so it will likely need to be a part a replace from time to time), so I purchased a front lip from Ikon (about $125 new on EBay), a rear diffuser from Ikon (about $85 new on EBay), and the side skirt decals (about $35 on EBay. OEM side skirt decals are over $150.
So I changed the look of my wife's car for just over $300 installed (I had a tech install everything as I am useless with tools).
Very satisfied with quality and fitment. I'm sure if someone was parked right next to me with OEM parts, you would probably be able to notice the difference if you look closely, but c'mon guys. I saved serious $$$ by going Ikon Motorsports vs OEM. Their customer service sucks, so make sure you order the correct part the first time around.
Here's a few pics after install.
I've since broken a kidney grill, and replaced them with M3 replica kidney grills for $45. Not shown in pics. The fitment on the the kidney grill is not great, as the part moves when you put your hand on it, but if you don't touch it, looks just fine. In hindsight, I would of bought a better made kidney grill.

This lip actually worked out very well. I was a bit weary due to the price. But the thing actually fit perfect. I would give it an A in fitment.

There are no holes drilled in the lip and they give you some self tapping screws. So what I did was. Under the car on each side removed the factory push clips and screws that hold the side undershields on (not the main large one) the ones under the fogs. Lined the lip up and drilled holes in the lip and used the factory hardware to hold it in. In the center I used double sided tape and the self tapping screws(there is no factory hardware to use in this location) so the center did not sag. It fit perfect. The lip was a bit warped from the box so I let it sit in the sun for a bit and it flattened out perfect. I left it unpainted but am very happy with how it turned out.



Very nice...i was thinking of that or the other version. At least i know now that it fit perfectly. My goal is to buy it and wrap it with carbon fiber...

For those who used the Ikon lip from Ebay, how was the install process? I tried looking through other forums but couldn't find anything in detail.

Easy, just buy some self tapping screws from Home Depot and drill it into the bottom of the bumper. It took me about 15 minutes to install it.
