Wow that's about half the price of the APR splitter and comes pre drilled. The apr you have to template out and drill the holes.

That top one is super wide though I'd probably hit it on a curb as I always try to park next to one in a parking lot as close as possible.

It's about 3 or so inches out from the factory pieces . See pictures

Just a warning for those of you guys who are running (or thinking of running) those bumper mounted splitters. Make sure you guys reinforce them. Lots of guys I see running splitter rods but you gotta make sure its mounted to an actual place that can take some force. These splitters can generate more than a 100 lbs of downforce so if you think reinforcing it with a splitter rod mounted to a plastic tab on your bumper is going to help... think again.

Had Downforce Solutions front splitter and side skirts on the Si. Went back with them again for the R. Coming in next week. Gonna order the rear diffuser in a couple weeks.

You don't know how jealous of you I am... Was going to order one when they were still around but decided to wait... Wrong choice on my part.
I have some parts of it. Maybe you can buy my parts and source the rest from Brian. :p

Which one did you get that has the mounting hardware for our chassis. Or did you have to custom fabricate something. I hit a damn Fox over the holidays and it cracked the passenger side of my lip and the painted plastic trim above it, you can't notice it unless you get down under the car. Though the front lip spoiler is loose now and I'm sure going fast having all that air pressure on top will make it worse over time. I was going to try to get a chassis mounted splitter to strengthen it up and hold it secure. The bumper would have to come off anyway to figure out a way to tie it back together stealthy. Much rather not have to get a whole new front bumper and lip spoiler.
