Car Bra and Wind Splitter

I have a '12 2SS Convertible with a factory installed ground effectts package that has a front end wind-splitter. I'd really like to get a bra for the front end for long road trips but I'm thinking the standard LeBra (part no. 551233-01) is not going to work with that wind-splitter in the way. Has anyone tried this?

I have never seen a plexiglass bug shield on a 5th gen Camaro. I have seen the vinyl nose mask.

It fits well, no flutter, and relatively easy on and off. It has saved a lot of scrubbing to get bugs off--and also keeps bugs out of the grill and radiator. Like a lot of things in life, it's a compromise--but it meets my requirements!

Thanks for the replies. RJT - can't tell from pic for sure if you have the wind-splitter that causes my concern. Do you? What brand is yours? Colgan tells me if ground effects package was factory installed, theirs will work.

No--it doesn't have a splitter. It's a LeBra. I have considered getting a Stillen splitter, but I would have to trim/modify the bra in order to get it to fit. Afraid it would look professional so I haven't picked up the splitter.
