    Firstly, Sorry Mods if the tittle is wrong, or its in the wrong area, as i havn't a clue what to post this as, or where

    Does anyone know the dimensions of the little corner extension pieces you can get for the M3 front splitter? Or, more importantly, the height of them (top - bottom)

    I only ask, as im looking at getting some but if they are too big, i wont be able to get up/down the slope on our drive..and it will be a waste of money as they will be in little bits within 5 mins
    I currently have 120mm clearance, but obviously, when you go up/down a slope, its less..havn't measured it though.

    Any help appretiated

    The titles not technically correct, but close enough

    I'll move it to the styling section for you.

    Are you talking about the M3 GT splitter?

    Cheers fella, didn't want to fall foul of 'The Mods'


    Im not 100% certain what they are i know my mate has them on his M3, and they look imho
    I know they fix to the bottom of the M3 splitter, on the corners.

    ShamM3..i think that is them, yes

    Is you car lowered?Cause I have an M3 bumper on mine and if they are an extension on that then they may be a bit of a mare,considering how many scratches are on the bottom of my stock splitter Here's another link for them
