    Does anyone have a picture of the underside of a Gen 1 ...like it's on a lift and your shooting the front half. A rent-a-bay shop has recently opened here in Cincy and I want to install a splitter myself. If I can get a picture, I can form my plan of attack. As always, TIA for any help...

    Why not just put your own car on a lift and take its pic from the underside? Then, you'll have a pretty good idea of what you can or cannot do.

    I would...but my car is undergoing upgrades. I was hoping to figure out what parts I need before I go over to the rent a bay place and try to install it.

    The only good thing was there were no injuries. Lucky folks for sure. Low skill & over confidence = a totaled MINI.

    If mine is ever upside down in a ditch, you'd be able to recognize the offset stripes..

    First image above isn't an R53, or it has been massively modified (4WD...). The second one just hurts my head!

    Thanks for the help people, but I have decided not to install it. I'm sure I would tear it up parking because of my depth perception. And, besides I never go over 100 mph...intentionally. :) It's for sale with hardware in anyone wants it.
