Spoiler???

I got in a small fender bender a couple days ago when a girl rear ended me (waiting for sarcastic remarks). So Im thinking of 86ing the spoiler. I kinda like the ones Ive seen with out. The back seems more proportional to the front in height or thickness. Seems more sleeper/stealthy to me what is everyones opinion. I figure if I really hate it I can drill some holes and put it back on.



And after I get moved into the new place and life settles down in a couple weeks im gonna paint the side skirts.

I think you should lose it. The lines of a 5th gen look much better without.

Thats the beauty of a low pro car wheels with a low pro lip, 17s look massive!

Well looks like its split. People that have a spoiler say keep it those with out say pull it... I see a correlation here!!

Im really torn. I like the look of it with out, particularly lowered. The one that keeps grabbing my attention is miz's in his sig. Granted its a different car all together but same proportions, slender sloping front with a thicker rear. That lude looks sweet.

Rory-the mugen spoiler is the flush with a lip that extends back correct? I kinda like that look but it seems a little nicer on smoother curvier trunks of euro cars.

Keeps the thoughts flowing.

My personal opinion changes depending on what colour the car is. Lighter colours, like white, silver and your red the Mugen tail is the best. For darker, naked rear end.


Mugen spoiler, this is the actual spoiler I own, on a car I don't...


Though having said that, the OEM tail doesn't look too bad, and suits the car perfectly, provided you don't have the Mugen rear pods, there's just something not quite right when you combine a OEM tail with the Mugen pods (see my car for example)

Are those the Mugen Pods on that VTi R? They don't look bad well maybe on the white lude 'thinking of black metallic'

Think I'm still going with OEM Under spoiler.

Man that mugen spoiler looks nice. Thats what I was thinking of I was just picturing it differently. That is a very nice car. I love the white, the wheel off set is great looking with the 0 dish.

I was gonna paint the rear when I did the rear end repair. So wasnt thinking of putting that with the sides. But glad your looking out for keeping rice off the road.
