Welcome!  Looking good.  I'm still not sold on the new front end but that lip does help a lot.  Keep it up!

Looking clean! What specific sti lip is that? Any issues when installing it? I once was contemplating on installing a sti lip, the one that has a fold on the sides but my concern was the center lip of our '16 are not flushed. (semi-fang-type looking). Have you driven on the highways already? does the gap in the middle sucks all the air and be an issue of attachment in the future?  I apologize in advance for all of my questions. :D

The lip is this one

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281518441665?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Its easy to mount. They sent the screws for it and i've driven the highway multiple times no problem. There is either 12-16 screws in it lol. The problem I had was the depth of it. Since the redesign our front ends stick out a lot further than 08-15 lancers its not flush around the entire front end. I'll see if I can grab a pic for you of what it looks like tomorrow. I dont mind the look.

As far as the semi fang look the one I got actually has an indention on top and fit perfectly inbetween the gap.

I only got the lip because I cant go as low as I want because of the terrible roads here in orlando. So it gives the illusion that its lower lol I would rather scrape a 40 dollar lip than my bumper.

True that! Much worse here in ALberta, Canada not unless you would use your lip as snow scoop! lol. how about the side skirt extensions man? was that also form a STI? Please show me a pic of the center lip if you have time. Another thing also, Your SRAI from K& N, is it this -- http://www.knfilters.ca/search/product.aspx?prod=63-5506 <-- this is specifically for manual trans though but I have one guy installed this on a CVT.

Not sure how that wouldn't fit a CVT.  Maybe they just tested power gains on the manual.

I don't see why the SRI wouldn't work on yours. Pretty much everything i've seen is interchangeable between models

K&N tech told me if something will be wrong then they cannot honor the warranty since it is specific only for the 16 manual transmission.

There's the best pics I could get. It sits flush UP against the bumper but doesn't sit flush around the bumper. It sticks out a bit on the sides as you can see by the second pic. From the front it (in person) it looks meaner.

Newest addition. 

XXR 527

18x8 +42 with 215x45x18 rubber

Weak? I know but doesn't require fender roll and the stock tires will swap right over from gt wheels. Plus you get a lil bit of a flush look

I've been on them for about a month. No issues. Pretty stiff but not terrible

I would probably say between 2.5-3 inches all around.

Hey, are you on the Tein Street Basis Z coilovers? If you are can you go lower if wanted to? I'm considering getting them I just haven't heard much about them. I love the gold wheels on the white lancers!

Thanks man. They can go lower. I would probably say maybe another .5-1 inch on the front and. 5 on the back. They are the same thing as the street basics just a fully enclosed system so they cant be repaired if broken.
