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.
not worth the paint.

Wow. Nice touch and nicely done car.

I may now put on hold the install of my Hamann lip and order a set of replica splitters. I love being able to change to either in a moments notice. lol

Get them from Euro-Spec, I think they are $65 or something like that. I got mine from there and the quality is good. Only thing I would do is add a clear coat on them. Also leave them black it suits the car better and doesnt stand out as much from further away.

See sig.......... they were painted, but they started chipping way to easily, so I sanded them and painted them matte black to match the molding.

I think they will good dope

I actually went with the replicas, did minor minor sanding to get them to sit flush (and rounded out the corners)

Painted FTW

Thanks... I say you just find some kidneys and paint one set black, the other set body color, and then keep your chrome set. haha. I have all three and I love mixing things up every now and again.

and idk why how everyone else is driving, but I have yet o scrape my splitters or anything. CS splitters dont really lower the bumper at all, by 0.25" at most.

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

i think it would depend on the road conditions etc in aus driveways are most of the time really steep and most drivers will not wait for you to take 5 mins to come in on the right angle so you unfortunately have to scrape them
