California Special front fascia question

I have a 2011 gt base and bought my c/s front fascia and I'm about to install it. My question is that I installed eibach lowering springs and currently I don't hit my front fascia unless its a really steep driveway. Is the California special front fascia any lower than the stock gt's?

No, it just sticks out farther.

it is possible to wipe it out on parking curbs. You must be careful!

If you let other people drive you car...they will wipe it out for you.

But... It's not lower than stock... Just sticks out more.

I think it may be just a little higher than the stock one, not certain as I did not take measurement at the front point. But I do know that it sticks out about 1".

Currently with my lowering springs and stock front fascia, that plastic piece that hangs down under the fascia (flap) scraps against the concrete parking stops but doesn't hit the actual fascia. So now when parking i have to avoid those or stop the car before it hits the stop. I just want to make sure that with the C/S front fascia that if I accidently go over the parking stop a little that I won't wipe out my front fascia completely.
