    Re: new front splitter

    I will get more pics very soon. It is secured with self tapping screws. it doesnt fit perfectly since its for another car but i think the subtle aggressiveness is good

    i like it a lot as a visual mod. It contrasts nicely w/ the thunder blue.

    I'd loooove to draw one out and have it made: http://aprperformance.com/index.php?...=250&Itemid=44

    Re: new front splitter

    It looks like it might not be long (wide) enough in that picture. We really need pictures from a couple angles and further away from the car to tell for sure. I think I like it though, and I applaud the effort to change up the look with a subtle addition.


    ...say....what happened to the original StealthV? Still hanging in the bimmer world? hmm...

    Re: new front splitter

    As you can tell in these pics, it does not have the width needed to clear the bumper on the outer edges but i believe it still adds a little something and makes the front end look a tad more aggressive.

    It does look a tad more aggressive but, im not sure I like how it doesnt fully follow the bumper. I have been looking for something similar as my front rubber splitter thing is all torn up and could use something in its place

    some people say you can take a heat gun and very easily warp this one to follow the lines better. I might give that a try.

    IMO with the black splitter i think you need to fully black out the grill. it looks mis matched as it is..
