It really is 50/50 all i will say is if people have uncut there are plenty cut ones about dont cut your uncut ones. Depends on look of the car if your modding and big wheels brakes exhaust or rusty archrs then cut but if your running small wheels brakes or standard car keep it clean and standard uncut bumper

I have to say I pefer uncut, looks better and is stealther on a road car. Defs don't cut an unmolested bar though. For a track go with what's practical.

I think the splitter looks good on either and doesnt spoil the look of the oe bumper imo...

I'm not a huge fan, or maybe that's because I don't have one Laughing

Uncut look good especially with a small ruler number plate. That's illegal and now £100 on the spot fine, used to be £30, depending what the pigs are like round your way you might get away with it.

I live opposite the cop shop and have had ruler plates on alot of my cars for the last 7 years

Sorry I meant front exit exhaust Laughing the guy who fitted it tried to make it look all neat with the splitter still there but it failed miserably. I asked him to take it off Evil or Very Mad

For what it's worth, I prefer the mean aggressive look of a cut bumper, but then you open up the question of what grill mesh to use. Or indeed whether to use any at all. I also used to use a Laguna splitter, but kept scraping it on speed bumps, so it's lying in the garage with all the other spares and crap I've accumulated (sump/bumper guard anyone?).

And for those that don't like the Laguna splitter, I believe there was an older Espace splitter that fitted, but was even deeper. But harder to get hold of.
