Lips and scratches

Hey i was just wondering how low is the clearance of a stock m3 sedan?

Like i live in La and a lot of place are up/downhill, a lot of dips on the street, coming in/out of parking lots and stuff. Do you guys scratch front bumper that much? Specially with the lips installed?

all the time with lip, cant see the scratches anyway so it doesnt matter, lips are made to be replaceable.

Before lip, only the black box under the car usually gets hit. Now with lip, gotta angle in some driveways, and sometimes it still scrapes.

I live in rural TX and w/ the bumpy roads have had to accept some bottoming out scratches under the front intake. Annoying but a fact of life.

Just thinking of something not so witty
