Fitting the splitter is easier if you have axel stands and a jack, but the car on the axel stand and offer the splitter up using the jack and then drill (easy)

How did you go about getting the triple R splitter ?

Message them privately on their Facebook ?

Their page seems so messy to me I don't know if that's where they even sell them from ?

Also how much did it cost you and how long was the wait from asking for one and receiving it?

By the way your motor looks great, keep up the good work!

Hey I went to Finsport, but if you private message triple r on Facebook they will tell you what to paypal and all other details.

I paid 97 for the splitter and the turn around was 2 working days (ordered on a Saturday and received on Tuesday)

Thanks buddy

Well due to my position in the family business changing, ST is going and company car is on the way, and sorry to say this but its a Vauxhall Astra GTC SRI 2.0l Diesel (GUTTED) but better on fuel and its a free car!
when funds pick up again I'll be going Japanese for a full re-build, either a Supra or Skyline!.

More than likely in the future i will be back in a blue oval as they have been fantastic cars to own.

I will still be on the forum snooping around.

Cheers

How low did u drop the car by does it clear speed bumps ? Only reason I ask is I'm wanting it done but it needs to be amble to clear the bumps lol

What's it like to drive daily after being lowered is it a lot stiffer?
