How Much Can a Lip Kit Save in Maintenance Costs - Blog
Sure, a lip kit looks great, but are there other benefits as well? Absolutely. In fact, a universal bumper lip kit can actually save you money over the life of your car by protecting your car from bumps, scrapes, and dings. Also, the improved aerodynamics provided by a lip kit may improve your gas mileage.
If you’re like us, you love a clean car. Scratches, nicks, and other unsightly marks on your bumper not only drive you crazy but can end up costing you a lot in repairs, especially if you have a custom paint job.
A universal bumper lip kit can protect your bumper from ever getting those dreaded marks. While some very small scratches can be repaired easily, deeper damage past the clear coat can run you a few hundred dollars.
Think about that. A simple lip kit could end up saving you hundreds of dollars in repairs while making you car look more sleek and stylish on the road.
A lip kit instantly lowers your car by 1.5 inches without actually decreasing the lift of your suspension. As you know, lowered cars tend to scrape their bumpers on speed bumps and parking chocks. “Lowering” your car with a universal bumper lip kit not only gives your car the lowered look you want but it protects your bumper too.
If you do happen to scrape a speed bump or parking block, it’s much more affordable to replace a lip kit than to replace an entire bumper, which could end up costing you hundreds of dollars in labor and parts.
When you’re cruising down the road, your tires kick up rocks and pebbles. Those little dings and scratches can impact the paint on your whole car. Even a bad paint job costs a few hundred dollars.
However, a universal bumper lip kit can provide an extra layer of protection for your car from those damaging bits of debris and can help you get more miles out of your paint job.
Let’s face it, we love cars for a lot of reasons, but one of the biggest reasons we love cars is because we love their power under the hood.
Because a lip kit adds to the aerodynamic quality of your car, this streamlined airflow increases fuel efficiency and can reduce the wear on your engine. A more aerodynamic, fuel-efficient car requires less money spent on fill-ups and fewer repairs and checkups, potentially saving you hundreds of dollars throughout the life of your car.
Save Money While Looking Good
Ultimately, you may put a universal bumper lip kit on your car because of the way it looks. As an added bonus, a lip kit can save you money on maintenance too. It helps keep pesky scratches and nicks at bay, helps preserve your paint job, and may even increase your fuel efficiency.
