need an opinion-trunk spoiler decision

What's up people, I have the opportunity to get my hands on a trunk attached with it, the dreaded HIGH RISE oem spoiler lol color matched with my car for a steal of a price. To me, I don't hate it, I kinda like it but what I really want is the super rare mid-rise spoiler which is way out of my budget and just too hard to find. The flush mount spoiler looks pretty sweet too. What I don't want is the spoiler from the USDM SH or the mugen spoiler. Help me decide if I should scoop this spoiler.

High Rise spoiler



Mid Rise spoiler :drool: y u no cheap n easy to find



Flush Mount

I currently dont have a spoiler but if I was then I'd get the Mugen whale spoiler!

I vote mid rise, but I would go with the Mugen type spoiler. to see a good example just look at EBP

Re: need an opinion-trunk spoiler decision

If its stock without lip kits, then mid rise would look good. But with a lip kit, the flush mount would look even better. For me the high rise is ricy, it fits supra best. So i would vote mid rise. Clean lude btw!

I thought the "mid" is the factory option. Am I wrong?

mid rise is ~2" taller than the factory SH spoiler. it might be a minute difference, but it makes all the difference. for me, i love rare things. i love searching for rare parts, finally finding a good deal, and i love coming home and seeing the UPS box in front of my door.

Re: need an opinion-trunk spoiler decision

If I were to ever have a spoiler I would only go with mugen or type s flush mount. Those 2 are the only ones I think look good

Re: need an opinion-trunk spoiler decision

I have the type s flush mount now. it's a nice spoiler. I'm getting a mugen one within a month. the high rise is awful. I didn't like the stock SH one and I wouldn't go with the mid rise either. I just hate seeing sh*t in the middle of my windshield when I look in the mirror

I agree, type s flush is what I'd like :3 but I currently have a mid-rise & I like it alot actually, I was gonna yank it off as soon as I had the title in hand but it grew on me quick.

High-rise??? Honestly, NEVER... maybe on a supra :P

Re: need an opinion-trunk spoiler decision

I say go with the one that you like. Who cares what anyone thinks?! If you aren't happy with it but get it because everyone else likes it, kind of pointless really.

Good luck on your decision and I think whatever you decide it will be fine.

I think that either the flush mount or the mid rise. It would depend on the rest of car as to which one would look better.

Re: need an opinion-trunk spoiler decision

I have a U.S. mid-rise spoiler on mine now but i think i might have the taller mid-rise too. Guy gave me a box with an extra wing in it that he never put on. Never really looked at that one.
