    Default Facelift SRI front bumper question

    Hi everyone,

    Would fitting a exterior pack one front lower spoiler be lower to the ground than the current black bumper valance?
    Had my car lowered the bumper valance is touching some speed bumps

    Thanks.

    I would imagine it to be slightly lower as it covers the original lower lip.

    Agree. I've caught mine off a few car park ramps since changing mine. Had to reverse up one car park recently in Cork. Didn't go down well with the Mrs in the car lol...

    I have an xp2 bumper, much lower :-( seems to ground out quite often. Still plan to lower it though!

    Just tested it, i got a xp1 spoiler in my garage still new not fitted yet, it's actually higher of the ground than the black valance, so that must mean the black valance must be removed before or after fitting the spoiler otherwise it will stick out at the bottom. I also notice than cars with factory xp1 dont have the black valance behind the spoiler.

    You do know an XP1 kit wont fit an SRI bumper don't you? You need a VXR bumper.

    XP1 only fits the sri bumper. XP2 only fits the vxr bumper.

    Mine has a black valance under the rear skirt... Also prefer the mean looking front splitter on xp1's, makes them stand out from the crowd.

    Mines on standard Sri suspension setup and it does catch on some speed humps if you don't slow down enough....
