I agree they look great and look far easier to get in and out of the car as they are much (seemingly) narrower than mine. I wonder how much that affects aero though as I wonder how much wider the bottom of my car is vs. yours. While I'd guess we could be talking as much as 6-8" I honestly can't imagine that makes a huge difference in terms of down force.

Anyone smarter than me care to chime in? As I understand the skirts are the biggest aero mod you can do since it makes the footprint of the car over 12" wider in total. Again not sure if that's just me justifying the higher cost and PITA factor that mine add. Either way GR8DRV I do think those look great, especially given you made them yourself.
