Mud guards Scraping Road

Got fed up with my front Mud guards Scraping the road on bumps etc. so I removed them and chopped off just under an inch with a dremel.

All sorted their now. (I took them all off completely but it olnly lasted two weeks as the car was getting so dirty they had to go back on)

Hope this might help somebody as when they catch it sounds like it's a bloody expensive bottom out repair cost.

I removed mine completely after few days of being on. Had them colour coded and sexy looking but got them all scratched up.
Might do the same as you and put them back on! Once they even shifted back both of my side skirts with few cm.

Eco display
always worth checking the tyre pressures are correct in case loss of pressure is lowering the car and causing unneccesary scrapes? It happened to me and i realised it was low tyre pressure on all four wheels.
