If you have no plans on a Sport bumper, I would do the Aero Splitters. I would not put that lip on a sedan unless you have a rather aggressive tire/wheel setup.

I have had the top style on my car for a while but finished in carbon fiber. Fitment is meh but as expected from being made in chine. I elected when i installed it to add additional points to where to bolts up to the bumper/undertray. Also I switched out for rivnuts instead of self tappers so that is has a better bite & more easily removable for servicing.

I personally picked it over the other style because it had a center section so that the car didn't look uneven. I have seen people with the sides and a flat universal lip added but that would eat too much ground clearance for a daily driver.

It has held up to a lot of highspeed abuse. Has saved my inter-cooler & friends from getting damaged from numerous debris by deflecting the carcasses & road debris under. To put into perspective, I have a 50 minute state road commute each way.

I've had the splitters for some time and i think they look fantastic, OEM+ look, i'd take them over the solid lip any day, plus they're super easy to install and the fitment is 9.5-10/10, at least the ones i bought
