    Default Fitting XP front splitter - Should I remove the black lip spoiler?

    Before I update the facelift conversion thread again, the Vec goes back into the bodyshop in the morning to have the XP front splitter fitted.

    The question is... Should I remove the black lip spoiler from the bottom of the front bumper to flog it or should I keep it on behind the XP splitter?

    I ave an XP2 but if i had normal I would leave on, just incase you ever have to remove for repaint etc....as lower is usually vulnerable to chips and roadkill

    Looks like you wouldn't see it anyway, so its upto you, not sure if they fetch much money though - so may be better left on.

    Leave it on, I have and as it sticks out below a little bit, it gives you a bit of protection as this will hit the kerb before the spoiler does.
