    Imo Only thing I can think of is the wing extension and removal of the factory rake, if the rear was lowered more then the front, that will change how the front reacts

    Looking at that wing, that is quite the angle and given the wind flow at high speed, most definitely the rear will be tipped down at an angle causing the front to lift.
    Please return asap to stock.

    yeah I'm fairly sure by design the RS generates zero lift meaning zero downforce as well, adding that wing lip with such an aggressive angle might have an effect on the car? my rule is don't mess with the aeros unless you know what you're doing and you better have a wind tunnel to do this, otherwise it's rice.

    also take that sticker inlay off, it's so misaligned it's atrocious. I have a feeling that this previous owner is a ricer with money :/

    I've also noticed the front end feels like it is lifting a bit after about 105-110mph. I have Pedders coilovers, whiteline endlinks, front/rear sway bars and stock front lip and rear wing. Last time I checked when I was getting the coilovers installed that the undercarriage trays seemed intact and not loose.
