    Default Colour coded rubber lip and lowered

    hi there i decided to colour code my original rubber lip this week instead of getting a splitter the reasons being the rubber is flexible so it wont snap or split if i catch a kerb,it wont chip as badly from stones,it doesent look boy racerish,it makes the front of the car look more bulky ,now dont get me wrong ithink the aftermarket splitters look great but im kinda gone past the stage of putting fiberglass on a car and constantly minding it and i always thought there i something classy looking from a car with colourcoded trim without standing out.i am delighted with it anyway,i got the idea from rushy on this site,he has it done on his,i got the paint from halfords cost me about €50 for everything what ye think ?the last pic is before lowering or spraying

    Looks good I did the same with mine, which was easy being black. I'd like a splitter but I know 100% I'd destroy it soon after fitting it, probably on my steep drive.
