Been doin' the front splitter for better downforce, but as the OE front lip is very high, about 18 cm from the ground, I did a vertical piece to down the splitter 8 cm with a piece of aluminum, so with this the splitter is at 9 cm from the ground, I think this will help to get better aerodinamics at the road track, just painted in black to see how it looks, but I think will put it in red... what you guys think?

Sorry for the lack of pics, took them with the cellular

I have drilled 2 holes at the rear of the subframe at each side and then bolt the rear of the splitter with nuts at the top.
