today i noticed that when i go above around 45mph my front lip starts rattling, i know it wont fall off but the sound gets annoying and worse at higher speeds :facepalm:

anyone else have this problem or did i just not install it right?

is the lip loose? check the bolts. if anything use double sided tape to make everything sit close and tight against the bumper

recheck everything over again, tape, screws everything im assuming mine is tight yet if it is rattleing i wouldn't be able to hear it cause of my exhaust and music lol. just look over everything that holds in it in place it is most likely just loose somewhere and needs to be tightned down

Maybe it's not the lip. There are a lot of clips and what not at the bottom of the car that might not be reattached properly. Check to see if all the plastic pieces on the bottom of the car are secured properly.

Also, is the noise coming from the passenger side?

probly not the lip.
most likely its the radiator cowl. make sure that the front of teh radiator cowl is tucked under the top part of the grill. if not, wind gets under it and causes it to rattle.

It seems like it is coming from my driverside fender and my passenger side lip? I'm going to recheck everything in about an hour and see if anything is loose haha
