No way would my motegi lip fit over the standard lip. They use the same identical mounting points and slide in clip in points. The slide in points are only thick enough for one lip....ie a few millimetres gap.
Yep 100% Motegi lip follows the same mounting points as the standard lip. You can install the Motegi lip over the standard bud.
My point was it wont. One won't fit over the other. Mine wouldn't. I had to remove the standard lip to fit the motegi. Fitting the standard lip behind the motegi fits no purpose as its totally hidden.
Yep sorry about the typo, thanks Scott. Meant to say "can't".

I think Lankysod meant to say 'can't' instead of can :crazy: - It wouldn't make sense for honda to fit the lip on top of the other (costs/effort) , same with sideskirts, they replace the original.

Actually now you mention the locating tabs/slots (about 1.5 inches wide, 2mm thick plastic tab protruding from skirt, slot in bumper just under the number plate holder) - there is no way the Motegi lip could fit over the existing one (not unless it was butchered)

Still loving the transformation, the motegi kit, refurbed 17s with the low profile tyres, it really is a big difference!
You were spotted by sam hardy on facebook in Tesco didcot.
