The holes are not exactly as pictured, this is just a rough map to give you an idea how I did this.

Awesome. Thanks. I'll mess around with it tomorrow and see if I can make it more resemble the way it's supposed to.

Nope. No joy. With the edges screwed into place along the wheel well, there's no give for the splitter to come any more forward than it already is, so even if I could completely remove it, drill new holes and mount it back up in place, the action of moving it forward so the front sticks out past the front bumper, makes the edges that are supposed to secure to the wheel well end up being too far forward and don't even enter the wheel well.

Does that make sense?

That makes plenty of sense.
And no surprise really, since the part was engineered and designed for a different vehicle with very different measurements and tolerances.

Kind of like someone sticking a Porsche whaletail spoiler on a VW Bug.
Well maybe not that much like it.

Red marks are where your ovaled holes need to be made. I use a dremel.

Blue holes are made for adapter and holes in the adapter.

Can you shoot a pic of where it attaches to your wheel well? If I move the splitter up to where you have it marked, then the areas that attach to the wheel well don't reach the wheel well.

I'll get a pic when I get up. The splitter fits the wheel well just fine.

Worse case... send me your splitter and I'll fix it for you and send it back to you.. just a thought

Thanks. Here's my problem. If I move the splitter forward so it's not flush with the existing bumper cover...

...then this will be moved forward as well and won't fit anymore. It will be too short....

I completely removed the splitter and the angle of this piece is the same on and off the car. Either I have a different bumper cover than you, or I have the wrong year of splitter. That's all I can do.
