Mode Carbon GTS lip installed w/removable lower piece

First off, let me thank the guys at Mode Carbon for a great product and great service.
We had ordered another GTS style lip elsewhere before we were in contact with Mode Carbon and had to return it for poor quality and fitment as well as it not being as advertised.
The Mode Carbon unit is very nice and probably the best value for money GTS style lip out there.

Mode Carbon offers this with or without the second lower piece. We wanted the aggressive and more "GTS" look of the two piece, but since this car sits fairly low, we were a little worried about clearance with the lower piece. Therefore, we decided to make the lower piece easily removable when additional clearance may be needed.

View from the back with two pieces mounted together using 10-32 hardware.



under side




and finally, mounted

How much was the lip without the lower piece? Mode Carbon has not responded to my pm. Probably extremely busy

A few repairs since made to the original wrap after some problems at 100+mph in a dramatic downpour , but the original pic thread is here:

I'm still waiting for the official price list from Mode Carbon, but should have it later this week. Hopefully they'll see this and reply to your pm.

Really well done, and I can't put my finger on it, but it works somehow. I would have never thought of it. Daytime picts would be nice too, but sounds like it's been warped a bit by driving 100 MPH in the rain

The wrap has been repaired which is why the pattern on the hood and bumper is slightly different than in the original pics.
I plan on some more daytime pics soon.

Price of the lip should be on their website. I agree with OP. Mode Carbon is good stuff and I regret selling it.

They must recently made the lips with the bolt on bottom half. The one I received was held by double sided tape.

They don't make it with the bolt on lower. We customized it to be bolt on.

Thanks Mike! I am very pleased that we were able to provide you with a product that exceeded your expectations. The custom bolt-on work is awesome, great job guys!
