M O D I F I C A T I O N S : EXTERIOR, Splitter
KH Assemblies Splitter
KH Assemblies Ltd., in the past known as Krafthaus Ltd. was probably one of the first who produced this kind of device for the F. It's very unique in its design and -even more important- it improves the handling of the car. A good setup of suspension geometry and ride height help a lot, but this device is a must have for handling. It's cheap, easy to install and is made in good quality.
It's available in carbon look or glossy black, directly from KH, but MOSS, PTP Ltd. and Brown and Gammons sell them too..
Some of the owners prefer to colour code it, or they paint it in a completely different color. It's all about taste.
The ground clearance doesn't decrease that much, but as this device is a bit sticking out in the front, the angle for going uphill decreases. Especially if the car is lowered you will need to be carefull driving up and down speedbumps, accessing underground parkings, etc.
Fitting is straightforward. Make sure the splitter is positioned in the middle, drill four holes (or use a soldering iron) and fix the splitter with the four bolts. (No need to remove the bumper, but get the car up, in a safe way) Click here and here for the location of the bolts.
