Painted Mode Carbon GTS Lip AW

Just had my GTS style front lip sprayed AW by Hassell Auto Body on Long Island. These guys do great work. I had to replace the lower piece (thank you Sam) and decided it may put this style lip over the top. The color is spot on, and the fit is clean and reinforced by fabricated brackets, again by Hassell, for my own piece of mind. Not sure how much downforce is created by this lip but its fairly solid now and no further worries during spirited drives. I also know this piece is sacrificial, and it's a matter of time before it get's trashed. Until then, I'm thoroughly enjoying my new lip!

Spacers (12/15 or 12/12) would do wonders for your car and help give the stance an aggressive look to match that aggressive lip.

Thanks! On the fence with the spacers. I like the look, but I read there's issues with wheel vibration, etc...

Wheel vibration is a non-issue when you buy quality hub-centric spacers. RS Technic is what im running and have ZERO vibration.

I'm glad you recommended. I definitely want spacers. I hear Turner makes good ones but I'll shop your suggestion. Keep you posted.

It's really more about installation than brand. You can get a wheel shimmy with any brand if the hub isn't cleaned properly and spacers aren't put on correctly.
