It's really not that much lower overall, unless you're planning a considerable splitter/lip of some sort. I have OEM splitters, and have no issues. However, I do not clear 95% of the curbs when parking (100% of those concrete parking blocks!), so one must be careful.

Others have commented on the ride/handling already.
Thanks, Chowster.I too have the OEM CF splitters and spoiler, and I know how pricey they are, so I really don't want to damage them, but I'm prepared to be paranoid careful.

Regarding the Dinan exhaust, which one did you get, and how do you like it? How is it different from stock? Is it embarrassing to start your car at 6:30 in the neighbourhood?
