    I think if that were mine I would be looking to buy a better front lip from a tried and tested company.
    I am sure there are members on here that can advise who to and not to buy from.
    The fact that the one you have has been supplied with what looks like the wrong fitting kit would raise concern over the product quality and fit.
    Could you send it back?

    They look like roofing screws to me.

    One problem you might have now regarding different screws is the hole diameter these f*ckers have created. Also, I doubt that they need to be as long as that. Without knowing the dia. of the screws you have, go to the Screwfix website and type in item no. 7483H. Might be a possibility.

    If you do need them longer, have a look on the Toolstation website at item no. 74683 and 75878.

    Update:
    I spoke to the boys at Autoid and they very kindly asked me to come down so they could take a look. Went down this morning and they fitted a brand new CS lip free of charge. Excellent customer service. Thanks Autoid :bow:

    Yes can’t recommend Autoid enough. I’ll add some new pics once it stops pissing down.

    What was wrong with the last lip then as they had to replace it ? I’ve been looking at a carbonwurks one but saw auto ID were selling them for £399 a few weeks back there upto I think £470 now though

    Just a one off issue and probably my first time dodgy fitting skills. Quality kit, I bought rear spoiler as well.

    Looks great what kind of screws did they use in the end did they drill a bigger hole through the first layer ?

    Is it just the angle of the pictures or does the splitter seem to stick out more on the middle right side than the left?

    Other than that, it looks great!
