don't do it. I get the idea in theory but who really cares what the bottom of your bumper looks like and you know that as soon as you hit a curb with it, they'll just scrape off and your bumper is now going to be half in inch lower than before. I saw these on facebook the other day and the comments are priceless! I even thought about getting this before reading the comments, they are spot on. next mod...

I read the FB comments as well. None of commentators actually own the product. Typical lowered car hater BS so I take no stock in their merit. I am looking for input from someone that has used the product. I am in no way sold on this solution, just looking for a way to protect my CF front lip that rides slightly over 3 inches off the ground. Curbs are not the issue, slanted driveways are.

I still think that as soon as you hit the ground, those suckers are going to pop off. I could be very wrong. But unless they're screwed into the lip itself, seems like a safe assumption.

Have you ever had the issue when backing down a slanted driveway? I got stuck twice! back of the car hit the ground and I couldn't move...luckily I could go forward and around, and my car isn't lowered at all but i do have the CF diffuser on the rear...

You can get a similar product called Acexxon Universal Front Lip Protector for half the price.
