Clubsport Splitters?

How do you think they would look on my car? My car is lowered now and I'm thinking they might look good, but I've always thought the CS splitters look best on darker colored cars.

You will scrape them more, but they're $65, a lot cheaper than fixing a damaged bumper.

problem is, u painted ur moldings. i put them on my silver grey zhp, and they look awesome, but i kept the silver/black contrast. are you going to paint them or leave them black? i personally would always leave them black and with your grille and bumper grilles you should be golden.

They will look great. Better if you paint them.

I didn't paint my moldings, they are always painted on the coupes.

Get them, and leave them black.

Will fit to your kidney grills and rear diffuser.

The kidney is chrome though... I can't decide how I feel about the chrome kidney; I almost think it works on the TiAg.

Where can you get them for $65? OEM? They're $310 shipped on Tischer.

I thought your kidneys were blacked out. Would look better than the chrome anyways...

This is the price for the replica CS splitters. I had a pair of replica splitters and the fitment was not so great. I've since bought some OEM splitters, which I have yet to install. OEM fitment is perfect and looks fantastic!

OEM for me.

I actually don't think that blacked out kidney's look good on TiAg (I'd be willing to be proved wrong though)... Anybody else have thoughts? You think I should still do CS splitters (unpainted) even with the chrome kidneys?

Anybody have a pic of a TiAG ZHP Ci with CS splitters and blacked out kidneys?

I really wanted to come out to the Toy Run but I was sooo busy with work. I'm going to Mexico next week for vacation and I have so much stuff to catch up on. Hopefully we'll have another event soon

i agree i prefer the chrome kidneys over the blacked out or tiag painted any day! thts why ive never switched mine out... it think tiag pulls it off.

but i still think you could do the splitter if you want to. I never did, although i contemplated it. I think it might look real good with your m-tech II rear diffuser too.

Does Tischer have the best price?

Anybody else care to vote on how the black splitters look on TiAG? I think its a waste to paint them on my car since I'm so low.

Tischer will probably have the lowest prices. I bought my OEM splitters used from a fanatic here, got a great deal. And FWIW, I think silver pulls off the black splitters very well.

You have the splitters installed on your car yet? Got any pictures?

I'd be curious to know as well how they look unpainted on a silver sedan/coupe. I'd photoshop it, but I don't have it on this computer.

Nobody rocks these black lol?
