I think I just need a few mm to raise the nose in order to avoid encounters with speedbumps mostly. Is there an easy way to do so??

Have you tried approaching the speed bump at an angle (45degs)?

From factory setup ? Never had an issue before a suspension swap ... is it up to the bump, or down ? in either case I use to use the throttle a bit, so the front does not drop from braking, or even slightly raise with gentle acceleration ..

I believe when I come down. 45 degree can help but isn't possible always. Yeah, not braking sounds logical indeed to keep the nose from diving down. Well, all the suggestions are welcome as I am not looking forward to speedbump issues and broken splitter :)..

By the way, if I can get some measurements from ground to bottom front splitter without anyone in the car I can compare it. Interesting to see the differences..

Thanks, yes I believe 13 should be good. I have 13 on the sides but in the middle it seems to drop like 0.5 to about 12.5. I think I should get that part to 13 also. If anyone else could share, it might help for future reference. Thanks!

Changing to a 215 45 front from the standard 350 Sport 205 45 will give you a little extra height, about a 5mm height gain.

I have an Exige S 2013. Thanks also for the tip of changing the front wheel if needed, I could keep the wheels on the back unchanged right. It doesn't matter if I only change the front?

He will be referring to tyres and not wheels.
