    I ordered some of these from Ebay thinking oh well, if they don't fit or look rubbish its £14? But I'm over the moon with them. I can't really warrant going for an M bumper with the spraying costs etc so these are ideal for making the front a little more aggressive. As for fitting, x4 self tapping screws in each later and they're on B-) They go with my Black n Rad theme great 8-|

    Here is a link to the item on Ebay:
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/320956859856 If you're a perfectionist you'd want to sand them down and paint them, but for this 'drift car' that is pointless as in all reality I can't see these lasting that long!

    Anyway here are a million pictures. I took loads so you guys can see how they look from all angles. There is some flexibility when you fit them as to how far they stick out, the angle etc.

    usually i dont like ''silly stick on teeth'' but they actually looks very nice and suit the car. Do they come in carbon?

    I bought these for my 2.8 and agree they were great for the price..

    But I modified mine by cutting the fins off and re positioned them.. In my opinion they then looked much better..
    Check out my car thread where you can see them before and after..

    Don't apologise, after all if we all liked the same things all our cars would look the same :) Because this car is just going to be a drift car I can go a bit wacky with it, certainly more than what I would on my road car!

    I like them (as I said on the other site) they make the front bumper look more modern

    Looks good with the red bodywork. Just wondered if it traps the wind and rain and possibly slows you down slightly acting as a trap ;)

    Splitters were originally designed to"trap" air, pulling the front of the car down to increase front end grip. I doubt this work that well though. I've got them primarily just for cosmetics, but also giving me a bit of a barrier between cones and my bumper :)

    ive changed my view, they suit the car colour scheme black and red.

    i love black wheels with red cars.

    I think they look great mate.

    If you said they were Hamman or AC Schnitzer and cost £250 plenty of people would love them!

    Looking forward to hearing how you get on drifting, where you going? I'm at Lyddon Hill at the end of the month, last time I was there, there was a drifting session after each round of track day cars. Awesome! Nuts but Awesome!
