I just took my parents to the airport with my new car. With about 550lbs of passenger and maybe 50lbs luggage upon leaving the driveway I got a nice scrape with the stock nose.

Its not a particularly steep driveway, very average and the street isn't heavily crowned or anything. I was not expecting a scrape.

As a person who wants to lower my car (for handling more than looks), I will have to be very careful and that is without any extended body work.

Any way the reality of a piece like this may not be as great as you imagine, especially if you lower your car.

Wash,
The Mountune splitter may be better then as it does not sit as low.

I have emailed another company about the splitter at the top of this thread.
I was told that they were looking into acquiring this part and then it would be available the US.
So all is not lost yet.

The Triple R Splitter is now available from PumaSpeed.



I must say that I really do like the look.
However the install was a fricken nightmare.
No instruction at all, with much modification required to mount correctly and secure.
Additional hardware was required to allow the front bumper to still be removed without removing this splitter first.

The install took about 4 hours and the assistance of another person.
I do not recommend this install for a novice.

I'm having to re-train myself with parking because I scraped my stock nose on a curb.

Luckily the car is so short I can usually park stopping early before the nose goes over the curb or concrete wheel stopper thing and it's still not hanging out as far as other cars at the rear.

Let us know how your clearance is and if you have to change your driving at all.

I will be checking this today.

I have had lowered cars for many years now and I have had my share of arguments with curb stops.
Yes, you do need to retrain yourself to not pull as far forward.

Looks good. I am looking into getting this, what mods did you have to do to get it on correctly?

Of course it is possible that the underside of the bumper does bolt up differently.
The splitter does match up perfectly to the bumper so it would have to be in how the bumper bolts to the car.
It obviously can be installed as I did it but some trimming underneath must be done.
Some holes need to be drilled and some additional hardware purchased.
I did not like the way the center did not have any support that could cause the splitter to flex in the wind while driving.
So I added some support pieces, I suppose these could have been left off.
I also know that my splitter does not need to be removed from the bumper if the bumper is taken off.
