Front chin splitter/spoiler

Well, I was wiping down my car and noticed my front chin splitter is damage enough to notice from 25 feet away. So I headed to the dealer to see how much one is and I damn near fell over when the part tech told me. $500...I said really? and told him I guess I 'll buy aftermarket. He said they have after market already. I told him AM can save me over $300 on a Roush style splitter. Was so upset I for got to order my touch up paint.

Here's the damage. Freaking pile of ice at the grocery store piled up in front of the parking spot.

Have you checked Ebay? Search on:

"<your year> mustang used"

I have found great used lower valances, splitters, front bumper covers, rear bumper covers, etc, all in various colors and various conditions which of course adjust the price.

Once you replace that front valance/splitter, consider buying a "curb alert" to help save the new one from damage.

eBay is a good place, but I think I'm going for the Roush on AM. Looks better than stock and I'll buy the curb alert and still save about $100 over the OEM unit.

Deerslayer thanks for the awesome offer. But I'm going with the Roush. Love how it looks on the 13/14' GT I saw pics of it on AM, on a GT and it look badazz and way better than the OEM.

Yeah, the OEM one hardly shows.
Forget the Roush, get the Trucarbon like we have for your SGM...

I put the Roush on my 2014 GT last weekend. It looks great.

Oh yeah this is the best shot I've seen so far. Definitely getting the Roush and with the ME discount, $178 you can't beat it.
