took the car back out of storage for the day today and noticed some very minor scrapes under the front spoiler on each side....i drove the car home, to my parents house and out for ice cream...120 miles on her...wow

all i can think of is i tapped the curb at the ice cream place...my drive way is steep and i hope im not scraping going up my driveway...

i dont see the spoiler being pristine for any of us for long

i know i checked for damage at the dealership before i left , so im sure it was me

ohhh noooo....my challenger isnt perfect any more....

Good to know it didn't get scratched in transit. Had a real subtle aftermarket front end on my Prelude, nothing crazy lookin', but it did drop down a couple of inches lower than stock and man... it was hell in some situations. You learn where to avoid & what to hit at an angle. Plenty of cringing, pre-scrape, in your (& my,) future.

Mine is an 09 but no scratches under the splitter yet. Do you make sure to take the driveway entrance/exit at an angle and not dead on?

I do have a scrape on the cover below the engine but that one was not me!

Might I suggest a camera on the front? That's my plan, then I can stop miscalculating and parking 6ft from the curb. ha!.... no scratches yet though and I have 2400 miles on her in 2.5 weeks.
Look at Costal tech. Their front camera comes on automatically when your under 8 mph for those very things... if you get the front camera mounted.
It's not cheap though.
