Did you do the install yourself?
Yeah I like it alot, the car is noticeably more stable at highway speeds.
I ordered it prepainted.
Installed it myself, just had to remove the little spoiler that came with the car first, which was a PITA! lol
First you pop the trunk lid and remove the felt cover on the underside of the trunk lid, it has 13 (if I remember correctly) reusable plastic push rivets.
Then unscrew the 4 nuts that hold the spoiler in place, the outer nuts are hidden by plastic covers, pop those off, there's two of them.
Close trunk lid.
Then get some blue painters masking tape and tape the area all around the edges of the spoiler, then get a razor blade and carefully cut into the double sided tape that also holds the stock spoiler in place, try to cut into the tape as far as you can, the blue painters tape is for protecting your paint from scratching it when you are cutting into the tape.
Cutting into the tape helps to break the seal of the tape, which makes it easier to seperate the spoiler from the trunk lid by pulling it up with your hands.
Pull up starting on one end of the spoiler and you'll probably have to cut into the tape some more as you go, then do the other side of the spoiler the same way.
Once you start to break the seal of the tape it get's easier.
Just don't use any kind of tool to help you pry off the spoiler, just use your hands.
When you finally get the spoiler off, remove the blue painters tape and use your thumb or fingers to rub off the remaining double sided tape that's left on the trunk lid, then get some isopropyl alcohol and clean the area where the tape was.
Then your ready to install the new spoiler.
The GT 500 style spoiler I ordered did not come with any mounting bolts, so I went to napa and got 4 threaded studs (metric)(can't remember the pitch but they were about an inch long) and nuts, I lock-tighted the studs into the threaded holes on the new spoiler, pealed back about an inch of the double sided tape cover strips on the new spoiler(enough to grip it easily with my fingers) and carefully and lightly centered it into place, then I pulled the tape cover strips off being careful not to tear the tape cover strips by pulling to hard and too fast, when I had all the tape cover strips removed I then pressed down on the spoiler.
Open trunk lid up, screw on the nuts to the studs and tighten them up, don't over tighten (about 25 inch lbs. should be pleanty tight), install the two plastic outer bolt hole covers, install the felt underside trunk lid cover, remember to fish the emergency trunk escape latch thingy thru the hole in the felt cover, then reinstall the 13 reusable black plastic push rivets.
Close trunk lid.
