Front Lip Diffuser... some times also called Splitter...

If you think it will help when going down drive ways you will rip that up first, especially carbon fiber / dry carbon ones...

They help with down force on the track, but look cool too...

They can easly be custom made, but some company's make them in Carbon Fiber and or Aluminum...

It's an Air Splitter but you'll just waste about $200-$300

If that's a splitter, I'll eat my bodykit. This is a splitter. Not some wire looking thing hanging down from the front lip.

My bad, I couldn't see anything attached to the rods even with brightness peaked on my monitor. I see what you're talking about Tchi, thanks for the much clearer pics.

While it might protect the underside of the bumper, those rods are going to transfer the hit to their mount points. I think I'd use some aluminum bolts/screws to secure the rods to their mount on the bumper so they'll shear easily instead of breaking something else up higher. Just bring spare bolts with you in case you hit something.

I think it looks cool... what I want to find is just a lip spoiler... not for the trunk, but for the bottom of the front bumper. I've seen one somewhere, i think it was in a magazine, but I can't find it online. Anyone know what i'm talking about??
i was thinking of getting the splitter but i am also looking for something like frostbytetc is talking about. anyone know of anything?

I want that splitter, what I'm going to do is get my buddy to fabricate some 1/2 inch tall, 6 inch "rails" of sorts and mount them on the bottom of the lip, so instead of the carbon fiber taking the beating if i scrape, the metal pieces will.. that and I would get those two supports that mount to the front and go up to the bumper with a spring damper in them, to absorb some of the shock.
