It attaches real easy and fast....it uses 4 screws(2 on each side) that hold the existing bumper cover on + 2 push pins(1 each side) provided by CDC through factory
holes...and across the front, center section below the lower grill, it uses 3M tape...take less tha 5 minutes to install, after its painted of course.
It lowers the the front ground clearance by approx 1 inch, maybe less...yes you have to watch car stops and curbs and such.

Thanks man. Good to know.

I love it don.. but you better not lower the car .. or you will sweat over every bump.
That's the reason I won't have one.

Love the look Don, but not as much as mine lowered.

We'll compare in about an hour or so. See you at the Q.
I'm not interested in lowering my car, so I like the way the chin spoiler "completes" the look of the front grill. For the record, there is 6-1/4" of clearance under the spoiler (1" less than stock). So, it's not that bad... probably more clearance than some of the cars that have a 1" - 2" drop.

BTW, I guess I missed you last night. My wife said she met you near my car after the driver's meeting. We'll have to meet next time.

Guess I can call you "Brother 28Hopup".
You bet. Had to change my picture back in my signature due to hosting issues. Thank you for the recognition...

That looks good Don. I almost wish I had bought the classic instead of the aggressive. I'm finally getting used to driving with it. The first week I thought I would rip the thing off the front of the car....

Thanks, guys... after seeing it now for a day, I like it even more. They guy who painted it did an incredible job of matching the Sonic Blue tint. No matter what angle or lighting I see it in, it looks perfect. And the install was so easy.

I think it looks great on your car... if I had a coupe....

But I don't...

next for me, probably the Eibach springs... or maybe 4:10s... but only AFTER I put the underdrive pulley on.

That little mod makes the front end look perfect. I really like the chin spoiler but I think I'll hold off doing it until the street on which I live gets repaired. It would tear off the spoiler the first time I drove on it.

Steve, it's not as low as you might think. My driveway slopes downhill, so bewteen that and the shadow, it's a bit of an optical illusion. It's only an inch lower than the stock height... still over 6 inches of ground clearance.
