Maybe a stupid question...getting a splitter doesn't impact the ability to clear speed bumps? No clearance issues?

No mate it's only an inch or so deep. Personally think the front is too high which has bugged me since I got the car a month ago.

Thanks! I agree, although I think the saloon looks sportier in terms of ride height somehow. Love that splitter. Will add it to my Christmas list

Was really easy to do! Took me an hour! 15mm’s on front and rear. But yeah, such a small thing however makes a make difference!

Did he fit it on for you then?? And did he say anything when you mentioned me?

Yeah he fitted splitter. I mentioned you and said he'd sorted you out and he remembered after a minute or 2! He's a top bloke.

Yes!!!!!! I do want to do this and have been looking at threads on people changing grills and sticking their number plates on the windscreen, but I have seen many tweets from police as this is not allowed and you get £100 fine. Can you please help me figure on how to do this on the grill I already have?
I think xuk do a grill he's a top guy zee who does top work his kits go as far as the states indeed his very busy and there's not much space for fitting
Nice car by the way
Are you from the Bfd area?

Hello mate did you consider the methods effects splitter when you brought yours, just wondering if I should fork out the $600 on theirs or £150 on this one.

I did mate but thought the Xenons one looked more aggressive, and a lot easier to get hold of cos I live 20 mins from their warehouse so picked up and fitted on the spot.

yeah the method effects is a bit of headache with the delivery costs so I think I might just buy the same as you, i did prefer the other one because it doesn't have the extra bit on the end but for £450 less a can live with it lol

You could ask if they can make them without the extra bit. They do side skirts that don't have that. Slim chance but worth asking.

If you're interested in the rear spoiler as well I'm having it painted on Wednesday. Probably body colour rather than black. Will post a pic.

think I'm going to order this one as the seller was recommended to me by another user on here, I like that it sits on the bootlid a little more then the xenons one. Would look nice painted body colour, definitely post a pic because I might do the same if I don't like the contrast. I think I'll just order the xenons splitter anyway

That does look nice! I got mine black as mine is a black edition so to match the black splitter black side skirts and black mirrors black badge. Looks aggressive.
