I'm pretty satisfied with the color as it does match my car and the paint job is very smooth. There's no "orange peel" effect and it is glossy. The material (PP) is definitely a LOT better than my previous FRP ones as these feel solid yet fairly flexible.

I simply used the double-sided 3M tape that came with the splitters and the screws located on the bottom of the vehicle. The pre-cut holes on the splitters match the screw holes on the bottom perfectly so it's a fairly, no hassle install job.

I also put a layer of 3M clear bra on the splitters (definitely not the best job, as you might notice). It does seem like there's only one layer of paint on the splitters.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with the quality, especially at that price compared to OEM. I'd be more than happy to answer any additional questions or take more pics later.
Nice!! Looks like I will be ordering those same ones! For 110 bucks or whatever it is, this is pretty much a NO BRAINER.

Can you please take a few side shots?.. I am interested to know how far the splitters "stick down" aka asking to be abused by parking blocks or steep driveways...

I am itching for nice weather again, stupid Northeast haha, cant wait to get my wheels back on PLUS the splitters and blackline taillights. I also have vinyl amber overlays for the headlights to tint them, not black them out, that I am waiting to put on... then get some MTEC AE's and I might be to done modding my car

Your car looks great BTW!
