OEM Spoiler

Hello Honda Prelude Forum I'm a new member to this forum and to Honda Prelude's please forgive me if i ask some question that seam simple and kind of stupid. I have a OEM Spoiler for Christmas this year the Spoiler color is NH-623M and my car is NH-552M it does look different i do have a pic. My question is do you think I should get it painted the same as the car or it's not the big of a deal at the moment? Before I put it on.
Thank you in advance.

Re: OEM Spoiler

Hmm. Spoiler seems a bit more blue. I personally would since I'm quite picky but it really depends on how much they're going to charge you to paint it. If it's around 100 then sure.

Re: OEM Spoiler

I don't want people looking saying oh you know it's different right. Just want to have it on if it is that big of a deal I will paint it. I'm sure it is easy to take on and off.

Re: OEM Spoiler

Well if you don't care about having 2 different colors yourself then the hell with it. If the car matches then no one will have anything to say though right?

BTW..welcome to the Forum.

Re: OEM Spoiler

Yeah I would say to get a quote to see how much I'd cost to re-paint it then just save up and run what you have for the time being. Welcome to the fourm

Re: OEM Spoiler

So I had my Spoiler put on bye Honda the other day, got it back yesterday every thing looks great works but.. I guess when they hooked up the power to the Spoiler they took it from the break light inside the car. So I have 3 break lights not 4 is this the way it should be? Or should all 4 be working?

Re: OEM Spoiler

The brake light from the spoiler should replace the oem third brake light. I think it looks really funny when people have 4 brake lights. Personally I completely deleted my oem third brake light

Re: OEM Spoiler

No problem, yeah I think it looks a lot better without the OE brake light. It's not that hard to pop out, but the only down side is it will leave a hole in the carpet. You can either get it re-carpeted or if your windows are tinted people wont even see the hole in the carpet.
