It's a long term problem not immediate. Nothing to lose sleep over now but def stick to either WIX or OE. Some say people "over complicate oil" but IMO it's the only thing that matters.

Lots of fun on a rally road. Just keep on the road and out of the trees.

take you front bumper off, you take your stock lip off, then set it onto of the lip where you want it to sit, clamp it on there so it doesn't move, make the wholes with a marker, then you have to predrill the whole threw the CF, then once the wholes are drilled you tighten it up with bolts and nuts and washers
