Yeah, if you can ever find the splitters, they look awesome.

Your best bet is to make something custom. Since you'll never find those splitters, you could put a 90+ bumper on and make a lip for that, or perhaps put an 850R bumper on, and you could buy a lip from a few different places.
On my SE, I had a friend help me out tremendously and we made a lip:

true. did you actually find SE bumper foglights or did you make something work? i gave up on trying to find originals, so i bought some Bosch ones that were close to the same size and had a friend help me fabricate some brackets.

I have a 90+ bumper, and I think I have a 960 bumper laying around as well.

This is the only one of these I've ever seen (and I own it )





It's a full kit, but the rear is partially destroyed and the guy I bought them from hadn't pulled them from the yard in time so someone else nabbed the side skirts.

did you do a writeup on how you made that lip? It looks really good. Is it a modded 940 lip?

OP just go to the junkyard. you're bound to find a 740 in there somewhere. now go around and look at cars that are fairly boxy. rip the bumpers off them, and hold it up to the 740. yeaa

Yes, it is a modded 940 lip. I did not do a writeup, but I suppose I should. It actually took a lot of work to make, lots of trial and error.
Fitzy helped me A LOT..but essentially, we took two 940 lips, cut them up..so that it was wide enough for the SE bumper. We clamped the middle part together temporarily, and then worked on each side individually. We used a heat gun on the sides to bend and twist it to match the curve of the SE bumper. It was a pain in the neck.
To secure the cut pieces together, we used thin strips of aluminum on the back, and automotive grade adhesive with a caulking gun to secure it down. Then, we used some automotive grade sandable filler for the front parts to fill the cracks...sanded it down, and painted it. Its not the most elegant lip, but it does the job and I think it finished off the bumper nicely.
