A bumper lip covers the bottom edge of the bumper on the vehicle, protecting it from potential scrapes and nicks on a speed bump, parking block, curb, etc. It’s also an excellent helper to preserve the paint of the car.


2. Reduce The Air Drag

When driving, there’s air flowing under the vehicle. It will slow the car down and cause a loss in speed. The bumper lip can reduce airflow, and then decrease air drag, and increase fuel efficiency.


3. Improve Handling

A bumper lip can also improve handling in driving since it will add downforce to your car by redirecting the air to the top and pushing the car down. However, it only works on cars at an extremely high speed.


4. Lower the Car

Apart from the functions above, many people use the bumper lip to make the car lower in appearance. The car with a lowered look is more stylish and attractive. So, it’s also a great addition to improve the vehicle’s aesthetics.


In conclusion, the bumper lip is a helpful accessory to reduce the airflow and protect the car from damage, and also a stylish and fancy decoration. If you want it for functionality, choose those made of high-quality materials such as stainless steel, aluminum and durable ABS plastic. If you need it more for decoration, go for one with stylish designs.
