Also does anyone know how to install this step by step? Thanks thumbsup

it isn't going to sit well on the VS Front due to the curvature of the bumper..

Carbon Fiber is light anyway...it wouldn't do anything.

well im getting the rods so its not going to be drilled from underneth the bumper but rather hanging off of it like the apr splitter... but it will have a part on the bumper where it wont lay flat since its curvature as youve stated above

well no..you drill underneath AND use the rods..
you drill to keep the bottom of the splitter on..can be anywhere on the bumper, mainly towards the end where the Carbon Fiber ends..
then the rods hold the front.

tony was it hard to install ?

did you have to take off your front bumper?
thumbsup

EDIT: ok im guessing you def needed to take off your front bumper in order to put that many screws into your front bumper

If you're not cutting it, then it is really easy. You do need to get the bumper off to measure and drill the holes.
