Spoiler

Im looking for a stock-looking spoiler. Anyone ever buy from spoilerdepot.com?

http://spoilerdepot.com/Catalog.asp?...MakeTemp=&idB=

Also seems convenient since they can paint it too.

Any other places have good spoilers for decent prices?

That stuf looks pretty good to me, especially for the price. I mean, you can get OEM stuff from bavauto, but I am not sure I would be too concerned about a trunk spoiler being to-notch. It is not like bumper components, which need to be strong or else they shatter into pieces.

I browsed around the site, and it looks pretty decent. I say non-lighted. You already have a third brakelight, and the lighted option requires you drilling holes on your trunk, routing wires, etc.

Their paint quote is a little high, I think, for an online place tat probably gets pretty good volume. However, we pay for convenience.

Yeah, true. I worked at a body shop last year... its not difficult, but by the time i get the supplies i need, it will probably cost the same, and it would be and inconvience, plus im screwed if i mess it up. Does the stealer have the touch-up spray cans... if they do whould that be enough paint u think?

I would get the oem one and nothing else... In my opinion... nothing else looks right for some odd reason.

Good luck,

Les

Consider the AC Schnitzer spoilers. One is a 3 piece deck spoiler and the other is OEM-ish but looks sharper.

^^ About paint: I wouldn't suggest DIY. I am just curious about how much a shop would charge. In my particular case, I am thnking of getting my hood refinished, and need a new nose panel and fender, so it may end up cheaper for me to just add a spoiler.

Still, www.paintscratch.com does have the real stuff.
