What's a good front splitter?

I've seen many and the only one that stands out is the APR one with the little attachments

As great as it looks, its bound to break off in your first 200km by a speed bump or a steep inclination

Function over form is what I'm looking for

Any advice?

I already got the Skyler side skirts and spoiler, so essentially CF would be nice

I believe Skyer is working on a splitter (among other parts).

I have an APR currently on my car and it doesn't scrape nearly as much as my FancyWide diffuser, and I'm fairly low. When it does scrape it's because I'm careless going down an incline but it doesn't seem to do very much damage at all. Nothing I've noticed anyway, definitely no cracks. Stone chips seem to be more damaging.

Also there is a CF replica of the Mstache available, but I've heard that's not durable at all. There's a thread or two on that around here.

Apr is super durable..bottom of mine was scratched like you wouldn't believe, top looked new..even managed to destroy a possum at high speed, which tore the passenger side bumper mounting bracket...bumper was trashed and cracked...splitter survived unscathed

Hey, do you have any idea where I can get the Varis splitter?

Based in Europe, they're website is not very user friendly. Found a site in UK but is just selling the central part for 1000$, unless I'm getting it wrong.

I found a carbon moustache, is this the cheap one you meant?

A few places list the VRS products, but I have no experience from any of them so maybe somebody else can chime in on that.

It's two parts, the front spoiler (that fits over top of the OEM bumper), and the spliiter portion that connects the two fangs.

As for the carbon Mstache, that is the one. Here's the forum thread I was mentioning about the quality. I know a few people with the original MStache (non-carbon) off this forum, I've heard nothing but good things.

I really like the Varis set but 2000$ for both products is way to much

You can get x6.5 Mstache for the price

Quick question about the Mstache, does it break because of the material or because of the position? APR looks like it's protruding more outwards and with steep inclinations, I can't believe it doesn't break in the same way the Mstache does
