2008 Astra XE
Default Front splitter lip

Has anyone ever installed a fron end splitter lip on thier ION sedan? I was wondering where I might buy one. I have seen front end kits for QCs but I only want a splitter for the front.

Very cool. How much time does that take to put on? So, nobody makes an OEM-looking splitter? I was wondering if the one from a Charger R/T would fit.

AFAIK, this is because of the functionality on older race cars it was intended for, it splits and directs the airflow around the front of the vehicle.

That's exactly right. A real add-on front/chin splitter would minimize the airflow underneath the car where there isn't already a means of diffusing the air built into the front facia.

This mod looks like crap and serves no functional purpose. A double loser in my book...
