      It’s simple, but they don’t use any screws just tabs and you have to pull on it more then what you think you should. Audi uses 3 screws inside and once that’s out just need little pressure.

      Thinking about making a video if you are interested.

      In what may be the stupidest mod ever done, I put black vinyl wrap over the chrome bits on my center console because I was getting blinded by sun glare off of them.

      Before:


      After:


      The edges of the wrap need a little heat gun action but my 4yo son was helping and if I let him know I had a heat gun I'd be filing a lot of insurance claims

      Not really a side skirt but a side blade. It looks really thin, what's the point of it?

    23. #616
      Short answer....looks. Front splitters-side blades-rear spoilers are great for “HIGH” speed driving-that doesnt mean the bypass speed on the way work. They are designed to create downforce in the corners. You dont want excessive downforce/drag in the straights. There is a careful balance-if you go Willy Nilly adding here subtracting there-it won’t matter on street cars-as they are not seeing the stresses and speeds associated with performance racing/driving-but will be noticeable to experienced racing drivers as they are attuned to such subtleties looking for that last inkling of edge they can grab over the competition. Not going to deny the look-as it “can” be amazing if done right-but absolutely pointless on a DD.

      Just purely for looks. I have a front and rear lip, i found the mid section of the car to be lacking, so i had these "blades" designed to flow nicer... not to everyones taste, im getting a lot of mixed opiniins on my car mods on tgis forum. The most important is i like it...

      Not my taste the blades. Plus i think a lot off dirt will stay on it. Sand etc.
      But if you like it, that all that matters.
      Here in the EU it is also not allowed to have sharp things added that will stick out of the car.

      Be wary of passengers stepping on them and ripping them off as they get out of the car. I had something similar on my STI and even though it didn't stick out nearly as much as yours, passengers would constantly be stepping on them. Ended up taking it off because frankly it made the car look a little cheap and was the epitome of RICE (Race Inspired Cosmetic Enhancement) on a car that already looked like (is?) a rice rocket.

      Thanks, I have a GT3RS so I am familiar with the aerodynamic benefits, was wondering why on these cars. As you said, as long as you're happy. I can't tell from your pictures but you have a S60PE ( I saw gold calipers and perhaps a badge in another) I thought like the V60 it came with side skirts, no?
