Front Splitter on FC?

I've been trying to do some research on what front splitters people are using but all I seem to find are threads on front lips. I don't see anything available from the normal vendors (Corksport, Shineauto, etc.) so are people running universal ones or what is suggested?

The only decent one I know of is the built2apex one:
Built 2 Apex



I'm planning on building mine myself with a 1/2" piece of plywood...

Cool thanks for the options guys. I like the built to apex one but 500 bucks seems a little steep for a piece of aluminum and some hardware. Anyone experience the fitment of either of them on a s4?

Hello! My name is Nader I am the design engineer at Built 2 Apex. If you'd like, I can send you some more pictures of the splitter fitment on our race car. I apologize for the pricing, we try to make our product as affordable as possible, the splitter and mounting brackets are all waterjet and all our products are designed and manufactured solely in the U.S.

We also offer the splitter kit in different materials and we like to work with customers on custom configurations. So there are options!

Thank you for your critique and time

Could I possibly run this this splitter in combination with a front lip? or does it have to be bolted directly to the bumper?

Yeah I would like additional pictures of the splitter fitment if you would. My email is [email protected]. Thank you for going out of your way even though I haven't spent any money yet. Much appreciated.

My pleasure! I apologize for the late reply, I didn't have a chance to get some good photos for you until earlier today.

*Quick disclaimer about the images. The splitter rods that come in the kit are not shown, I had to remove them from my car for a friend who needed them for an event. Once I get myself a new set I will have a good set of product photos on the site*

As far as bolting it on with a lip, it is designed to secure to the factory front frame.. you could order a splitter that does not protrude past the bumper, so essentially it is a flat bottom for the front of the car, and install the lip underneath it.

There are more options as well, if you would like to send me a PM we can talk about what they are.

Just to Forewarn you Nader..
that IF you intend to SELL parts that are Specific to the vehicle you must apply for VENDOR STATUS..(see "contact US at the bottom of the homepage).
If you attempt to sell without applying then it will be deemed a breach of Club policy and action will be taken..ok?

SO,NO further posting of Parts OR Prices will be allowed in this Thread..However If guys want to contact you,since they now know you do sell products,then they can do so at their own free will.

Thanks.STYX ([email protected])
