    AAARGHH!!! I hate the roads in Western PA!!! They are not very front spoiler friendly. I pulled into a side street to turn around and SCRAPE! ...Back out and look. Oh it is not very pretty. Oh well, stop for some touch up paint tomorrow. The first scratches always hurt the most.

    A nice front lip should cover that nicely.

    Tyoe 1 or type 2 depending depending on how big you want it.

    If you don't like carbon fiber...

    They are expensive but maybe there are some cheaper ones that I don't know about.
    If you are scapping on a stock setup you may want to get a few backup lips.

    WRXBrit - Thanks for the suggestions. I was able to fix the crack with some ABS cement and touched up the scratches with some handy SRR touch up paint. She is a little beat now but it adds character. Those items you suggest are nice. I'm sure I'd rip them off in no time if the stock lip is catching. Oh well - let the wheel search begin.
