I go over about 10 speed bumps each day. Not heard any noises other than the exhaust hitting the rear anti roll bar. There is quite a lot of damage by the previous owner under the bumper and one the rubber skirts is torn. I don’t have an engine undertray so that may be helping.

On mine the rubber skirts appear to be stapled on. So a prise them off with a flat blade screwdriver job and find a new fixing method to put new ones on.

GT . 155 . 75

mine is also lowered about 15mm at the front. i definitely have to be careful to avoid heavy hits to the undertray.

I found the clearance on my V6 GT was terrible! Had lots of moments when I heard grinding noises!

On my 147 2x undertray and rubber thingy under splitter, speed humps became a complete nightmare, fitted FSD's with the stock springs and the car is transformed. Given I had to sell my 33 cloverleaf because of bl**dy speed humps, the 147 was heading in the same direction. Now apart from the vast improvement in handling, no more crunching & scrapping.
