I sort of like the lip. It's not just screaming noticeable, but nice.

I'm trying to find a way to attach the front plate without making holes that can be removed or hidden for shows. There is a retractable plate holder and I've messaged another xB owner that has one to see where he got it. I hate the front plate...BLAH!

Ultimately the decision is yours but personally, I don't like it. Not even a little. It doesn't look like it belongs.

Thanks everyone! I personally don't like the whole bodykit stuff that's why I went this direction. I like it simple, mudflaps and splitter. But there's no splitter for our cars.

Hellen:
I know exactly what plates your talking about. Expensive but slick! I just let my stuff hang, it's enough personality for me :]

Parker:
I got these from home depot but today I went to lowes and got a better brand that feel stronger and flare out more.

Again I wanna thank everyone. More inputs are welcome...

That is the garage door bottom weather strip (I think that is the correct term) mod. I've seen it a couple places, but not common enough to not look different still.

I've thought about it myself . . .
I'd prefer this over other more stiff lips, as it will flex rather than crack and is cheap enough to just replace if it gets chewed up.

Hmmmm, seems like a real distraction from the good looks of the xB2....(Read that..."IMO the license plate looks like crap!")
As far as the "lip" goes its not bad...doesn't take away from the xB2...and is a cheap mod if you like it.

It would definately look sick carbon fiber. I wonder if you could wrap it with carbon fiber vinyl! How did
you attach it?

I wonder how many of those confused faces belong to the PoPo. Why give them a reason to pull you over???

The material is rubber foam. Ive never used carbon fiber vinyl but if its really sticky it would probably hold on. It would just be hard to put it on the entire thing. The vinyl thing is great idea though...
