This bumperlip is an origional Mitsubishi part. If you go to your local Mitsu dealer, they should be able to import it for you. Here in the Netherlands it costs new € 99,- as far as i know.
I think that aftermarket bumperlips don't exist (anymore) for the Carisma.

I used to have that exact front spoiler on my bumper.
Mine was not made out of fiberglass but ABS (bumperlike material, so it's less likely to break). I was very pleased with it until someone decided to run into my car and ruin it.
 
These "better" parts were made by Vestatec, but they stopped producing them.
 
The glassfiber parts will eventualy break as they cannot handle much stress. So i wouldn't advise to buy those.
 
If you can find a Vestatec one (extremely hard to find), i would suggest you get that one, otherwise stick with the original front spoiler.

abs will break as well ;)
mine front bumper lip is from PU,bend it like you want and it pops back in shape..

Well than its pu. Mine hit quite.some speedbumps etc but never broke. It took a hit from another. Car to break.it. Still not beyond repair, but with the lowered suspention its just to low, so i wanted something else.

i suggest screw it for better hold on the bumper!!

Bericht door: Evo driver op februari 24, 2012, 06:56:52 pm
Yes offcourse no problem !!

First you have to take off the front bumper.

And on the innerside you can see some sleeves pressed in the bumper. You have to cut out those.
And in the middle you have to drill some holes I think it was 8 mm for the bolts.

I will look for you to get some more info.

YEah looks great, but I've searcht for you but still no manual found.

But when you take off the bumper or you have a picture of the inside of the bumper I can tell you what to do.
I've mount them a lot on the carisma's on my work but all the manuals are gone ....

sorry.

First off all my drawing skills are a little bid low :D but I hope you will understand what I mean.

In the 3 red circles you see 3 sleeves. In each corner of the sleeve you drill a hole of 3,5 to 4 mm. Then you need a knife to cut out the sleeves. Take a paint stripper or a hairdryer to warm it up so it will cut easily. Don't make it to hot or the paint is going to burn off your bumper.
You do it twice at each corner on the left and right.

 
(http://img41.imageshack.us/img41/1879/2d29400.jpg)
 
Then you drill on the stamped circles on the yellow points a hole of 8 mm. You need to do it 5 times.

 
(http://img94.imageshack.us/img94/2112/14veq1.jpg)
 
First you need to slide the bolts no 1 into the holes on the front splitter on position B.
And you can mount the splitter on the bumper. Sometimes if the splitter doesn’t fit in the sleeves you need to make them bigger but not to big off course.
Then you hit them hard to get the mounting points a trough the bumper.
Then you use the plates no 2 on the 5 bolts in the middle of the bumper and put the nut no 3 to Finnish it off.
Then there are also 2 black brackets in the box you need to lay it on the corners and mount them with the bolds no 4.
No 5 and the clip between no 1 and 4 you need them to mount are perfect on the plastic trims under the car..

I Hope you have something on this how to.
Please take a picture when it is on your car !!

Good luck with the assembly

Regards

Remco
