Pretty unique looking...just remember to be extra careful to not scrape it!

they are made to reduce front end lift, more at high speeds, it will plant the car stout on the ground also giving you a quicker more controled steering,
i took it out went around some long bends around 120 ish, car felt stable, more then stock, but i still have a 135mph limitter.
closed track.

Where did you order it from, and modifications did you need to make? Looks really good!

Looks neat. Cant wait to see the good pics. The Black cars always look nice with carbon parts. I would rip it off the first trip home. I don't even think I can get away with lowering springs on my SS Aero, it already rubs more than my lowered viggen.

Make sure the braces are mounted solid. There can be some pretty high loads at those speeds. I tore lots of spoilers off my 79 99 years ago. Lexan is really cool stuff. Never wore out.

Do you really need more than 135mph. Pretty sure that is felony territory anywhere. JK but still... Does seem disappointing. Like the old 85mph speedos.

yes.... yes he does. Thats like asking me if i need to go over 135... i would be soooooooo pissed if my aero had a limiter on it!

Tino that looks good buddy (looks better on the computer then it did on my cell phone last night) But it looks like the fronts being pulled up to tightly... would be perfect is it was perfectly flat all of the way accross..... now wheres the one for my aero?

I'm liking the look of that. It would look really good on the 9-3 SE bumper as well since ours is pretty much straight accross like the SS. Hahaha I predict Kaylans credit card bill growing even larger.

That looks cool but that front bumper is already mint so its icing on icing if that makes any sense. Good to know they look good on saabs too.

You can do plenty of damage with that. CC companies knows this and if you keep paying the bill on time they'll just give you the chance to siphon more money from your wallet!

That looks pretty cool. I've thought about putting something like that on my car before. Jeff Prop. has that ugly ellow thing on his lightning blue spg which was actually my motivation. I figure if I could get a "splitter" for sub $100 it would help my from damaging my catalog from peice.

I'm not too crazy about having the stainless supports showing though. I've seen some sort of splitters of lips on civis and such that don't really protrude that I think would suit my car better.

Do you have any pictures of other splitters you considered, just so I could get some mental pics?

yeah i know. Im using it to build credit. I buy my high priced parts on it and pay it off that month. Right now i just have my whole turbo set up balance on it. Im gonna pay a few hundred on it a month for a few months just for credit building purposed then pay it all off. I guess you only get credit with a standing balance or something lame LOL.

oh well it allows me to have the credit to buy the things im going to want... like a house....

i like the look, but i think the sides are just a hair too wide, and a little trimming and shaping would go a really long way on the sides

Im putting a CF splitter on my 9k as well but its not a soild 1 piece thing like that. When they dont have ones application specific normally they dont line up properly. Ive found a two piece splitter with good shape that im leaning towards purchasing...
