W212 E350 4matic with some AMG look front end: suppossed to help mileage. But really only lowered it 1 1/2" now i have to deal with cracked lower edge.

maybe a pic would encourage someone to answer me?
my guess is that when it gets bad get a new bumper installed.
HOWEVER who can tell me if one without the low air dam would fit?
much obliged, Max

If you’re referring to actual bumper (not knowing the extent of damage) replace bumper, here are bumper and lower trim part #s.

Hi Konigstiger, I scooted under, it is a crack in the lowest part of it. I would have to look closer at a diagram. however I am hoping a 'jerry rig' would do it for now. like some fibreglass filler.
one catch is a coupler has broken. I am not sure what to call it: two pieces of fibre glass hook together.
My real though is if i had to replace whole #10 part I want to know if someone has adapted parts from a vehicle w'out the lower air dam; giving me more clearance next time.
i havent used imgur in a while. I will try and post pics.
much obliged, Max
