Haven't really seen many options other than Phoenix Power and Varis. Any others?

In the same boat as you OP.  Seems like we are pretty limited on the 2017+.   Would love to see more options.  This is only one that seems nice to me.  http://www.gt-rr.com...017-nissan-gt-r

Stillen makes a rubber front replacement for racers at a good price

Yeah, I think I like the Phoenix Power one the best. Either that, or a replica Nismo bumper with it built in. I do like the 2017+ front end though.

I had the Stillen lip on my previous GT-Rs. Those were great, took a beating and were affordable. Unfortunately, they don't make one for the new style bumper.

Yeah, I'm with you there.  The 2017+ front looks so good.  It makes the older bumper style look very plain.

Yeah the best one out for the 2017 bumpers is the Phoenix's Power's lip. We call can agree the 2017 bumper is better looking and aggressive, and with this lip it'll look way more aggressive.

Installed my phoenix's power lip over the weekend. Very pleased with it. Always felt like the front was missing something. Don't have any better pictures yet.

Looks great, how long did it take for install? Did you have to remove the bumper or need any special tools?

Took about 6-7 hours because it was my first time taking off the bumper. However you technically don't need to take the bumper off to install the lip. I did the install for the carbon grille at the same time and for that you need the bumper off. I also have a lift which definitely made it easier. The grille was harder than the lip as there's some weird clips in the back of the grille that i had to mess with. 

 

Basically you can remove the lip/under tray without removing the bumper. If you want to remove the bumper there are 3 screws on each side near the headlight/side markers that are a pain in the ass. You have to snake your hand in there to get them in/out. There are also a ton of bolts and grommets on the bottom to remove. 

 

Once you have the lip/under tray off the car you have to drill out all the rivets to remove the stock lip (theres like 25 for whatever reason lol). Then you have to cut the under tray so the carbon lip can fit over it (not sure if this is the case for all lips but for phoenix power it is). Once i had all the tedious work done i re-attached the undertray loosely and then fit the lip over it. Lip quality was perfect and all the holes lined up. You re-use the stock hardware.

APR 17+ aero kit. Currently installed on mine. More for function rather than looks though:

Would you mind if I ask how much it cost you and where did you purchase it??

Originally was going to order Phoenix’s Power but no luck. Everywhere I called, I was told 6-8 months waiting time. Ended up ordering 17+ Varis Magnum Opus from James @ vivid. I think he said only couple of Varis lips were left in the USA. Once I have it Installed, I’ll post some pictures. Already got estimated delivery date for next Friday the 22nd. Decided that with time I’ll go for the whole Varis Magnum Opus look. Excited, haven’t see it on the red.
