I put one of these on a couple of months ago. It did not fit well on the very side edges against the wheel well, is cracking significantly. Otherwise, a decent fit, more of an air dam, "spoiler" than a splitter. But who really knows the functionality of the various solutions for front aero?

Thanks! I knew it looked familiar. I used to have Esta International CF sideskirts on my exige and the fitment wasnt the greatest but it was trimmed to fit perfectly.

I think I will order the lip and just get it made to fit if it doesnt fit too well.

I bought exact front one from Darkside Engineering last year or so (forgot when or how much), installed by Stephan - good fitment - a very solid piece!

Could be? To my knowledge all the side skirts available for the Lotus are the same for elise/exige. Can anyone confirm this?

Didnt that rip your clams bottom section off? I like the way that lip looks, but to make it functional, you need those supports which I think ruin the car's appearance...

David, just pick up the one Bryan sells whenever you go in for the roof fitting. It's very affordable + you might ask him about his side skirt plans (I hear he needs a volunteer)
