Front Lip Options

Alright guys so I decided on getting a front lip for my M6 GC and I ended up with the V style front lip but after installing it I immediately started scraping it everywhere, I take bumps and driveways at an angle but sometimes it still scrapes, in one week I've pretty much destroyed it, and that's at stock hight and I daily drive my car in Los Angels, the roads are shit here fyi. I still have my H&R springs to put on and god knows what'll happen then. My question is does anyone know of a lip that doesn't scrape as much? The overhang is so far on the car that I want something closer in that still looks nice, I have the CF side skirts and diffuser that match so something similar, and if anyone has any comments on how I should drive better know that I also have a slammed Miata that is about 1in off the ground and I don't scrape it as much as this car. And if anyone wants to vent about there scraping problems feel free to vent on this post lol. thanks.

You'll need to use one of these products or DIY something similar.

That slipo kit looks pretty decent, I saw it on instagram but I thought it was one of the regular annoying scam commercials, its worth a shot, but that price tag tho for what it is, Im gonna try and fix the front lip and put those on but if it doesn't work out ill just get that small front lip from that mikerx5

You cant win with lips. I trashed my RKP in less than 6 months. Just the nature of where its placed.

I also live in los angeles , It is difficult not to trash your lip . i am on my third lip. But on this third i made a custom wind splitter out of aluminum and painted it gloss black . so now the splitter takes most of the damage.APR makes them in carbon fiber if you want to match .

The long sloping front on these cars sure doesnít help either. Iím on my second V-Style lip and Iím glad itís not the authentic V lip as this would be costing a fortune to replace each time. Better off with the replicas in a case like this for sure.

Here you go guys,I rolled on raptor liner truck bed liner goes on thin and is super tuff,I did 3 coats,I scraped a few times with zero damage to the liner or spoiler, and I think it looks super clean, if you scrape or grind to deep just roll on more liner

There's also the Maxton-Design M6 lip.
Much more affordable than others...

Reach out to James from ECSTuning (sponsor); he'll hook you up.

It's not my car; I ordered it, but it'll be coming in January.
That car looks stock height to me, but you can see more pics on their website (also look at the skirts, they have other angles of the same car):

Again, ECS can hook you up on all pieces. I'll post pics of my car when I get 'em.

Weird I chatted in on ECS site and says they dont have it and can't get it. I have a feeling I got a lazy rep. Who did you PM here? I really want to get info on that full kit.

Hey man,
Sorry you had a bad experience. I just PM'd "ECS Tuning" here from the site sponsor and spoke with James.

He hooked me up with pricing, shipping quote and a custom cart to make the purchase.

Good luck!
- Leo.

PS: I opted for the front lip and side skirts, but passed on the little rear strips (add-ons) as I'm envisioning a full diffuser upgrade.
