I don't see what's wrong with relocating the license plate as long as you get the license plate " caps " to cover up the holes again. Or is it for JDM only vehicles...
do you have any clue to where to get the filler caps?

From the research that i've done, the dealers are supposed to have them, and people from the forums say they just asked for them and got them for free since they're just plastic caps.

Even if they aren't free, i'm sure the stealership can't markup the price on these " plastic caps " too much. . .i'll look into it after exams though.

For extra reinforcement, drill holes and attach screws if necessary, but I didn't.
Voila, you have a $30 rubber lip that protects your bumper from any scratches lol
your car doesnt look like its low enough to bottom out on the front bumper/lip. doesnt a rubber front splitter/lip create more air pockets...causing more wind drag?

i was talking to my friend about it..thats what we concluded..

^ The "wind drag" you mentioned was excatly the primary function of the spliter.

A good spliter could creat downforce much like a rear mounted spoiler would do.

but it could be used to minimaize understeer in fast bends

well, my car is very low. It scratches while driving up steep driveways.
But nontheless, if it did increase drag, i'd need to be driving at a high speed to feel it

Also, my mudflaps would increase drag too
But then again, I'm a cheap bastard and I eat rice

Reducing lift is the point of the splitter, not to increase down force; unless you had the front wing things like a F1 that is anglde in a certain way to increase front end downforce and thus reducing lift simultaneously.

I just wanted to know is it possible to reduce lift using some bodykit while not increasing downforce.

^Most aftermarket body kits are useless. How often do you think they even bother to tune body kits to be aerodynamically efficient? Probably never. They just make 'em to look pretty.
