    I liked the look of the car as you had it, but from the shots here I prefer the black lip.

    Makes the lower centre grille look slightly larger, more aggressive.

    Starts to make up for the fact that they no longer black out the part behind the number plate.

    I'd definitely got for the black middle section, makes it look a lot more aggressive.

    After doing some measuring up I have worked out that I can trim 10mm off the height of the plate and still stay legal ( character size, manufacturer post code, bs number )
    Then the plate will sit properly in the recess.

    I think i'm sold on the black, not that it took too much convincing. Cheers for the feedback, greatly appreciated.
    I agree, why did they negate the black behind the reg, makes it harder to tell the difference between an FR and a CUPRA!

    oh and yes this is the SEAT OEM Lip as per the accessories catalogue.
    Hopefully if the paint shop don't destroy it when taking it off :headhurt:, I should have a spare splitter going, price TBA, so watch this space.

    Im thinking of just biting the bullet on this and ordering one for my 300. I wonder when they say "doesn't sit perfectly" is it noticeable?

    Has anybody fitted any other front splitter apart from Rieger and RDX? As others have said I would like to fit the TripleR Composite one. Any pictures would be good.

    @paddy6789 Has fitted his own TRC and took the bumper off.

    I got the TRC boys to fit mine for me, took them 20 minutes

    Sorry guys, I meant on a 300 Facelift model. Nearly every one I've seen has either the Rieger or RDX splitter fitted. I would like to fit a TripleR Composite splitter on the 300 but was told it wasn't a perfect fit as it's for the pre-facelift model. If anybody has any pictures and advice I'd be very grateful.

    If you’re not far away see if they can use your car to take a template of yours for the facelift.

    Bit of a trek for me but if it only took a few hours to do the mould and I got a good discount then I wouldn't mind.

    Worst they will say is no. However your car is not a ford so they might not treat you as important :blink:

    Pretty sure his car isn’t a facelift, but for the price worth a punt, and if it doesn’t fit sell it on. If it does fit you’ve saved yourself a few quid.

    does anyone know if the reiger splitter requires holes drilling into the original bumper?

    I dont want to leave a mess when the splitter comes off afterwards.

    thanks guys
