    Default effing debris on roads aaarrrggghhh!

    wifes just come home from work and told me that the car in front fired some debris onto the front of my car, and guess what? more damage to my front splitter! starting to wonder if the splitters are worth the hassle as they are very liable to damage, although they do look very good(when unchipped). really p155es me off when you see just how much debris and **** that is littered all over our roads!

    Oh sorry to hear this mark

    TBH i think the copies are very flimsy and as we both know it doesnt take much to mark/break them!!

    I wonder if the proper ones are more robust??

    What a pain mate. The very reason I'm not going to bother with the splitter. That and the fact it would come off on the speed bumps coming into work....

    When mine was repainted, I went through a patch of muddy gritty water on the motorway at motorway speeds. All I could hear was the stones and grit hitting the front, thrown up by the lorry I was overtaking. You guessed it, the car's got freckles again

    Sorry to here that bud. I hated by pre-face lift Irmscher spoiler as it was very vunerable. The VXR spoiler on the facelift does seem to be alot more damage resistant.

    sorry to hear this VP - it's a ****ter when there is no-one to blame!!

    get the original one colourcoded - it'll save you cash and it still looks good! you're going to hate going back to a plain black lip after having a splitter - colourcoding is a good intermediate
