Just one photo I was able to get after the install. I'll get more photos when i have a better camera :) this is just to give you guys an idea of what it looks like



That looks great! I have the splitter coming. Do you like the winglets on the ends of the splitter?

the winglets are the reason i went with them! Very unique, and make it stand apart from the rest.
Does the Splitter tilt down in the front or is it flat.

Here is your answer, a great picture!

Thanks John.... Great picture but is it the angle or is it me, It looks like it does point or tilt up in the front. I know the car does but was thinking adding a splitter would level that out.

You can either design it for the track, or design it for the street, with track benefit as well. I chose the latter for majority of the owners' usage and also the aesthetics. It's just a personal thing with me, but the flat splitters that step up to the bumper seem to exagerate the fangs. I brought mine up in the middle of the fangs to blend this more. Again, nothing against any of the others at all, just my personal preference. However, the straight out splitters do have less clearance pulling into driveways. My driveway entrance isn't that steep at all but you can imagine if I projected that off the bottom of the car, how close it would be. The flat splitters are going to create a lot more downforce which pushes the nose of the car down at speeds and you'll lose MPG as well. One of the forum members has another splitter and is having this exact problem, so he ordered mine.

You can't tell the splitter is more forgiving from any angle other than laying on the pavement though ;)

Not wanting to hijack your thread but have opinion question for you and any one else that whats to jump in.

I'm torn between the Painted Carbon Flash and the Carbon Fiber. My car will be Shark Gray with Carbon Fiber Roof opt. and Dash. It will have Carbon Flash Stinger stripe and mirrors and spoiler...

My question what made you go Carbon Flash paint and what do you think will look best for my combo...I have seen both and having a hard time making that call..

The reason i went with Carbon Flash is because i have zero exposed carbon fiber on my car. Also, having gone through 3 splitters on my previous gen 5 camaro, I didnt want to shell out the extra $$ for a splitter i didnt know how long would last.

Was going to do all Carbon Fiber then I added the Cf painted Spoiler and Mirrors and the sting Stripe because I loved the look of them. Now trying to see if the Top and the Bottom should match or not lol

Your Car Looks Great.
