Vorsteiner front lip + a drop a problem?

I just ordered the Vorsteiner front lip as well as the KW spring kit. Is this going to present a problem at all when it comes to scraping? Am I going to have to keep my KW on the highest setting?

No issues. I am lower than the above poster on Volk 18s and no issues. If I had a full front bumper like above poster then I would scrape everywhere.

The lip is very subtle and you should have no issues. That is with 2 inch front drop and 2.25 rear drop.

Had H&R race springs before, no clearance problem with the lip, but did scratch a bit on big speed bumps after switching to KW V3 with a pretty low ride height.

Very nice to hear. Was much less excited about my purchases when I started thinking about scraping all the time, but I am much more confident now that it'll be fine.

Just depends on the roads where you live. Being careful doesn't hurt either.

You should be fine. I have the KW kit set at half height and Vorsteiner style front lip and it is fine. Just be very careful driving and pay attention.
