Front Lips & Splitters

A front lip, also commonly referred to as a splitter, is one of the most popular ways to give the front end of your car a more aggressive, sporty, or track-oriented look. On top of making your car look better, front lips and splitters actually do offer some performance benefits! Front Lips and splitters, depending on their shape and intended function, are meant to literally "split" the air impacting the front end of the vehicle - forcing high pressure air up and over the car and low pressure air beneath the vehicle. This process results in higher downforce and better aerodynamics, not to mention it looks awesome.

Maxton Design has a few great options if you're looking for a front splitter that looks great and can stand up to anything you can throw at it! 3D laser cut to provide a perfect fitment every time, Maxton splitters are vehicle specific and made from high endurance ABS plastic, known for its scratch and shock resistant properties.

Side Splitters & Skirts

Side splitters and side skirts carry the lines from your front splitter and tie your vehicle together with a sporty, aggressive, and aerodynamic look. Side splitters also help your vehicle appear lower and wider, taking your aesthetics up a few points.

Rear Diffusers

Rear diffusers are some of the most popular aero upgrades for enthusiasts looking to give their vehicle a more race-inspired or track-oriented look. Rear diffusers, simply put, improve airflow beneath the vehicle by allowing high pressure air to expand rapidly, creating a vacuum that sucks air out from underneath the car. Additionally, with high pressure air above the car and low pressure air beneath the car, downforce is created while simultaneously reducing drag! On top of the performance aspects of a rear diffuser, quite frankly they look amazing, and are a great way to give your MK7's body lines a finished and coherent look.
