Cool upgrade! Wow, those tires seem to be over stretched on that rim? Biggest gap between the tire and edge of rim I've ever seen.

Awesome mod. I'm thinking of adding brake cooling as well. I just don't want to pay $2500 for the front lip!

There are a few vendors who sell ducts that can be mounted under the stock front spoiler but the lip looks so good.

I am interested how your hoses hold up under normal everyday driving. Others have reported wear due to the hoses making contact with the suspension. Keep us updated.

Come back to report after a year of driving. My hoses are appropriately enough...hosed. Looks great though. I'm jealous.
