Re: Front splitter

Yea itd fit mate but dont buy it off ebay, too expensive. Go direct to a seat dealer n ull get it at least twenty quid cheaper.

Just say something like you went over a speed bump in your Seat and broke it and need a replacement.

Re: Front splitter

They might be a bit less keen to sell it, or bump the price up a bit, still be cheaper than the ones on ebay though.

Re: Front splitter

I think I did around 12 screws tbh, but thats just what I had.

Found it much easier lifting the front end of the car up (with a jack obviously) and using a drill to get through the bumper.

if you can heat the splitter up, you can bend it to look more OEM, however I just cut mine where I thought...maybe a bit too short so double check before you snip.

There is no right and wrong way to do it, just make sure it's in the right place and put enough screws in to hold it securely
