So a little earlier this evening coming out of a parking lot driveway this happened, and unfortunately it was unavoidable.



I think I may have come to the conclusion that I may part ways with the DTM bumper already after i fix it, for something that does not sit AS low. Love the bumper and the looks of it on the car but I can't keep having this happen, it is the second time in the short period I have had the bumper on the car.

Sorry that happened, I had to re-learn how to drive with that bumper. Once I did, I never scraped on anything - even after I lowered my car. I might be interested in buying it back, since my other deal on a bumper is falling through

FYI: 99.99999% of all aftermarket bumpers sit as low as that one, even the RS rep that ED is selling now is lower than the OEM version

I took everything at a crazy angle and pissed off everyone around me, drove on the wrong side of the road to hit the angle just right, and other stuff too lol
