Does the 3d design front lip/spoiler/splitter lower the clearance at the front of the car?

It doesn't change the height but it does stick out further and therefore on ramps, steep dips/decents on the road or speed bumps etc may become things to watch out for

The one I had was the RKP front lip. With it I was scraping a lot more. About a month ago I went out of a really steep driveway and couldn't avoid scraping, but the lip cracked and I ended up throwing it away. Waste of money IMO.

thats why I want the splitters that BMW do for the M3 on the M5, no such issues. A bunch of guys with front lips on M3's had a nightmare time on our Alpine Run road trip.

I have the RKP lip on my car.
As has been mentioned you have to be careful with steep inclines / bumps

Just had some beautiful 20" BBS FI's added. The breaking and cornering difference is MASSIVE. I can't believe how quickly the car comes to a stop with these. I guess thats what a 10lb. per corner reduction does...









You can check out the rest on my Flickr.
