they have two new style front splitter/lips that are for all models but (Will Not Fit Hatchback, Type R, Si, I-Style Trim) they come pre-painted gloss black, or with a gloss carbon look. Why the hell would they make these and not have them fit the SI, R, or hatchback? those are the owners who want these on their cars.

I'm honestly surprised it doesn't fit those trim levels, is it not a pretty universal front bumper?

Because that's what their supplier has issued them. I'm sure they're working on options for other trims as well, but worldwide the Civic Sedan outsells all other variants combined by a large margin so they have to focus on that first.

Like @CanadiaegeanBlue mentioned, the regular Civic sedans FAR outsell the Si and hatch, so there are more aftermarket accessories for the base models. Be happy that we have a lot of aftermarket performance parts for the Si!

And forget that lip. No subtlety. I don't even like their R style ones with the little wings on the end lol. I like the HFP one, but didn't want it red, so I just ordered this:

I’ve been considering the HFP lip as well and yes I agree the red might be a little much. The Australian market sells the HFP in black but after shipping, it might be cheaper to just paint the red one gloss black. Where did you order yours and how does it fit?

Got it on ebay a few weeks back. Haven't had a chance to install yet since it's been cold here in the midwest!

Looks pretty good. It's thin, but sturdy and flexible. The material has a gloss to it, too, so no need to paint. Has 2 rows of mounting holes so you can make it stick it out more or less.
