Default APR front wind splitter installed...thoughts (pics inside)

well guys I installed my custom made APR performance front windsplitter yesterday. the piece comes with no mounting holes but the install only took about 3 hours. I first took off my cdc aggressive chin spoiler and clamped it onto the carbon fiber piece. measured about 3 times, and started drilling some mounting holes. suprisingly i had no problems with the carbon fiber cracking or anything along those lines. The quality of this piece was truly amazing and I am extremley happy with the outcome. I have to give big props to Tony over at APR for all the support and great assistance! well let me know what you think. while I was at it I also added the clear corners. they definentally cleaned up the overall look of the car. sorry that the pics aren't that great.

That looks really good. I like how they make it cover the whole lower portion of the front of the car. How did you have it custom made? Did you just contact them or did you do the custom work?

I gave them a call and they said they had the template for the cdc aggressive ready to go. they can make it for almost any car though. you just have to send them a template.

hahah yeah it is a little tough having it as my daily driver but It's well worth taking a few longer routes to avoid scraping
