Re: Removing Front Air Dam For Off-road
With the air dam on I went over an unseen sand berm a bit too fast. The front dug in and suffered some damage to the air dam but shattered the air inlet duct behind it. The next time, with the air dam off, the front dug in again. The front lip of the plastic belly pan dug into the sand and ripped out the plugs. The belly pan folded back under the car pushing the wheel arch liners onto the wheels, very expensive. Moral of the story, dive slow (i.e. no fun) and get a lift kit or ORII in QL. The shocks easily top out in ORII so can't drive fast anyway. With QL, after stopping to take in the view, it's easy to hop back in the car and drive off forgetting to lift it.
