Question about OEM CF Splitters

I haven't seen them in person, but judging by the pictures it doesn't look like they sit much lower than the stock bumper would. Can anyone confirm how much lower (if at all) the splitters make the bottom of the bumper sit? I'm asking because I have some pretty steep garage entrances that I use daily and I don't want to order them and watch them pop off as soon as I go up or down the incline. Thanks.

Yes, it's minimal.
The OEM splitters hang slightly lower on the bumper, but not lower than that notorious carpeted piece that can be an issue on challenging driveway entrances.

Thanks, that's exactly the picture angle I was hoping for. So I'm guessing that I'll scrape up the carpeted piece before the splitters. I'm gonna try to go over the driveways a couple of times without the splitters first to see if I scrape the carpeted pieces, if they clear I'll know the splitters are ok. Sound right to you, or am I missing something?

Live downtown Chicago and the splitters are all good and I'm a lowered (dinan so not too much). Had the vorsteiner gts3 bumper and that scraped everywhere, with the splitters have had no problems whatsoever

How much is the drop on the Dinan springs? Was thinking of going with H&R Sports when I get rims but not sure if it's gonna be too much.

Think it's only .25 inch up front (camber plates limit the drop i think) and .5 in the back, more of a performance rather than cosmetic mod, I love it and I track the car....
