    "Double Lip" *pics enclosed*

    So I've seen this done on a few cars. So I took the liberty of doing it to my own.

    I'm not sure how I feel about it. All it is is a cs style lip with a DIY lip attached to it. I saw this on some track cars and thought it made the car look more aggressive.

    What do you guys think?

    Looks like it flows pretty well! I think your black wheels make it look better.

    Thank!

    I wasn't sure if it looked obnoxious or not. I think I want to get the side skirts to even out the valance of the car.

    Yeah, I don't think I like it, but it might look better if you did this.

    I'm so 50/50. But it might not be worth the ground clearance issues I'm having now due to the "dual lip".

    Looks pretty good. I wouldn't do it myself though lol, I like my ground clearance.

    What is the purpose of this? If it's solely for aesthetics, I think it DOES look kind of cool. But performance wise, DIY-doctoring an engineered piece will have untold effects, likely for the worse.

    Pure aesthetics lol.

    Well, I used 10lb. Double sided mounting tape and I used self tapping screws to drill into my *first* lip. This way the foam *second* lip just rips off instead of taking my bumper with it....I hope...

    I think it looks good. I would want to see it in person.
