Has anyone tried the EZ Lip on their 986?

I was just browsing amazon looking for some parts and I came across this universal lip spoiler called EZ Lip (https://www.ezlip.com/). I couldn't really find any pictures of it on a stock 986 bumper, so I was just wondering if anyone tried it on theirs and how it turned out?

All the Z4M guys put these on - called an "M-Stache". really improves the look, IMHO. Can't visualize how it would work on a 986 tho, it seems too rounded to take a splitter or front spoiler, no?

Yeah, I'm not sure about using it on a rounded bumper either. I found these pics, but the angle isn't great.

FYI: the "EZ Lip" is a foam rubber garage door seal that has just been re-packaged and the price multiplied about 10x.

It's not paintable and they can be found much cheaper at home improvement stores ($5 - $10).
Being foam rubber held on with double sided tape, I don't see it holding up well. I'm sure it folds back on itself at highway speeds.

Garage door seal


"EZ Lip". That some pricey packaging!

Are there any other lip options for the 986? Would the super cup lip work on a stock Boxster bumper?

Put "boxster splitter" into google images. You will see a bunch of options, none of which look right. :-)
