I love them but I don't want to buy and install (already have H&R sport springs) just to tear them apart on the gigantic speed humps they installed around my housing complex.
they are not lower than the rub inserts. i am also running on H&R and going over speed bumps, etc. is exactly the same as it was prior to the splitters being installed. not a problem.

Splitter Instal

Need to check my car, but are the holes already predrilled, how much is involved to drill holes and not screw up car.

Is the combo glue/bolts holding spliiters securely on??

Looks like my next mod.

one hole is there, the other needs to be drilled. It's quite easy. You just glue them on, install the one screw that already has a hole, drill a pilot hole for the second screw and install that as well.

I know it's asking a lot, but could someone please take a close-up pic of the bottom part?

I'm looking to install some brake ducts in the black rub undertray and would like to position the opening to match the swept "channel" in the OEM splitter. Or at least match it sufficiently so the splitter won't obstruct my brake ducts...

Much obliged...

I think someone should photoshop these body color...wondering if that would look cool (especially on white, heh).

I have them sitting in my garage waiting for my car...Have a decision to make on whether to paint or leave carbon (on BW).

I never like to rain on anyone's parade, but I think they look horrible. Does not flow at all and breaks up the bumper too much.
I think they will look much much much better on black cars.

Can someone please to an AW photoshop with them? I'm still considering painting mine body color. It might actually make them stick out slightly more, yet still be subtle at the same time - if that makes sense

If you read the PDF instructions (available on Tischer Website), they include instructions on removal. I have no experience with the adhesive (betalink?) that is used, but apparently you can remove it using the adhesive cleaner, but (again per the instructions) you will most likely damage or break the splitters.

I have to agree, but like so many things pictures probably don't do it justice. There are a lot of compound curves to the front bumper and final aesthetic judgment can probably only be made in person. Really our car is not all that photogenic from every angle, so that is probably the same case with the splitters.
