Am I the only 2012 Turbo S owner that dreads scraping the front bumper everywhere?

I am glad that mine is not painted for that reason. I purchased the Aero Lip on Ebay for $100 and keep an extra one in the garage at all times. I have only replaced it once but it was scraped when I bought it. I go slow and angled and my scrapes are minimal. In Houston I would not want to drive one that is lowered and enjoy the stock ride height.

Canĺt avoid scraping every morning when entering underground garage at the office. My heart sinks every time. Not only scrapes, but also drags for about 3 seconds. I shave the bottom of the lip down periodically when it starts to Frey. The lip is a consumable and my car sits pretty low. But I do like the stance. After 7 years I just accept it.

Hey now,

I think that we're all in the same boat! I just drive mine until it gets fugly and then replace. Like you, I can't imagine lowering it any further.

BTW, I'm in an 997.2 TTS and am a huge Deadhead
