    My advise is - don't even think about it.

    The 888 has a wider track and wider wheel arches (the originals were famously 'grinded off' and the new ones bonded on) - so just fitting this to any other car will mean that it will not meet the wheel arches. It also 'locks' into the wheel arch part of the kit in a horrendously difficult way.

    In fact I'm not even sure that it would fit the std coupe as the 888 has added spacers inside the bumper for the additional width? do normal coupes/hatches have this - I dunno?

    It's more trouble that it's worth - if you can't get the complete kit it'll look odd imo. But then I guess I would say that wouldn't I.

    You should have loads of spare damaged splitters i your garage, just glue bits on from your other splitters and youve got yourself a cheap fix

    Speak for yourself....

    It's not how it looks but what it does - if it's good enough for 888 Astra Coupe (BTCC winners for how many years? ) - then it's good enough for me

    Obviously helps the aerodynamics of the beasts by being so low.
