It doesn't I hit mine last month, It not only chipped the paint, it completely cracked it... And I'm telling you I barely touched it... I still have no idea where the front of this car is... At least the lower lip sticks out just enough that I didn't screw up my bumper... But on the bright side it gives me a reason to now go ahead and experiment with carbon skinning when I get around to it...

I use the parking sensors when in doubt, but usually park far enough back where I'm not close to the barrier. Take going in and out of driveways at an angle, helps a lot not scrapping the front end at all

This is going to require a front mounted cam, for me. The nose is a bit too long. Had they shorten it in the original design it wouldnt have been a bad thing.

I've tried all different combinations of springs
XK
XKR &
Spires

Think I've finally found the holy grain the perfect balance of comfort , handling and aesthetics (also not scraping on every single driveway is a huge bonus)

Spires in the rear / XKR up front

Are you using spacers with your setup?

Viper not running any spacers although I have been toying with the idea of running some upfront (10mm) just to give it that guard filling effect as far as the back goes they look just fine the way they are.
