Angry To Everyone that has the HFP Lip Kit Read This

I love its look but already i have scrapped the bottom of it. I was at a honda dealership and tottaly forgot about how in the middle of their lot there is a huge slope. well i hit it going about 15KMPH really slow and SCRAPEEEEEEEEE ..

Dammit im not even lowered yet

When you buy a car with the Honda aero kit it cleary tells you on the steering wheel that you must be careful because it is considered a lowered car...

Anyways its not showing but it still pisses me off..
Any of you scrapped yet with this Kit????

i scrap my car all the time. I think my front lip actually keeps my bumper from gettin messed up. Must have been a HUGE slop if you scraped on stock height!

noVICe is an unknown quantity at this point
havent scrapped the lip yet... even going through a large slope at 25 mph (wasnt paying attention) the hfp kits do not lower like bady kits do, it just gives the car a "lowered" look without actually lowering. (possibly only a .5" drop)

I've only scraped once, and that was because I pulled about 2 inches too far forward in a parking space.

I really want to lower my car as well, but I'm a little afraid of ruining the whole kit, plus I'd have to adjust to parking spaces because the concrete stop would just smash into the lip.

got the hfp, scraped twice in a matter of a year. Didn't even lower it yet. Doesn't change my mind about lowering it though.
