please elaborate on this

Were you surprised they sent it and got no notification or did you get something else unexpected?

OK, thanks for the explanation. That has been my gripe with this spoiler all along. It's a badass looking spoiler for sure but, when all is said and done, is it really worth double the original price of the spoiler to get it mounted properly? Would you have made the purchase knowing that it would cost that much in the end?

After hearing about the added cost for this spoiler I'm glad I passed on getting it.

This would have been their problem, as (according to CDC) the firebreather spoiler doesn't use the stock holes and the body shop would have had to drill new holes for it. If the hole was too big or too small or oblong or jagged, then it was their fault.

Yes. (I haven't had mine installed yet because I'm not sure if I have permanent nerve damage to my right arm, yet. If I do, I may be trading my manual for an auto. :( )

Permanent nerve damage? Wow man. Sorry, to hear. Hopefully, it's not permanent. Hope the best for you man. How did that happen? Sorry, if you've already explained and I missed it.

No worries, I haven't explained it anywhere. Didn't think anyone would care to hear it. :p

Somehow I've managed to net myself 6 herniated discs in my back, one of them causing a pinched nerve to my arm (a bit like Sciatica). What this pinched nerve did was make nearly any movement in my right arm, shoulder, lats and pecs incredibly painful. Sometimes making me feel like my arm had been through a mangle, sometimes making me feel like the muscles were all cramped and knotted.

I was seeing a chiropractor at the time but shortly after, I had to start seeing a pain management specialist because nothing was helping. When he saw the MRI scans (that the chiropractor had also seen), he was shocked that the chiro had kept doing adjustments on me, considering the likelihood that it could cause permanent nerve damage. The PM doctor isn't against chiro, in fact his office encourages it in some cases, but he warned me about what my chiro may have done.

I'll probably have to have another MRI to see if there's permanent damage, but they are insanely expensive, and I can't afford another. Currently I am seeing my PM doctor every week to two weeks for epidural (steroid) injections into my upper spine. I've had 2 so far and am awaiting my third. Hopefully it can heal up enough for me to not only feel that I can keep my manual, but allow me to regain my upper body strength enough so that I can start doing some DIY on her. I still haven't installed my Vararam intake because this all started happening just after I made the order for it.

Yikes! I've had sciatica before and that's no fun. Can't imagine having that in my neck/shoulder area. That's gotta be totally debilitating. I hope the best for you man. Good luck!

Worse that it was forcing me to become left handed. However, this is my first day without pain killers (after my epidural), so I'm trying to stay positive. There is still pain, but it's no where near what it was (so long as I don't try to do too much with my right arm). Very high hopes that the damage isn't permanent so I can painlessly saw away at my gear box. :p

I'm going to give you my honest opinion. That spoiler is hideous, just awful. It's way too big, doesn't flow well with the car and just looks tacked on for the sake of being different.

Looks like it should be on someone's ricer along side their fart can exhaust.

Eye of the beholder, naturally. I, personally, loathe dove/ducktail spoilers; but as I don't have anything nice to say about them, I generally say nothing at all.

To me it looks like it came off a different car. Lines aren't there.

Could be the way it is painted. Would like to see it on a solid color.

Yep, the lines just don't go well with the car. There are some pics in this thread with the solid color and it still looks bad.

The lines on the Camaro just don't suit a large spoiler. The back of the Camaro and the rear QP are just fantastic, very well done by GM. This spoiler just detracts from that and makes the rear of the car look overdone, heavy and just out of wack in general.

Not to mention I just hate large spoilers. It's a result of seeing so many crappy ricer imports with huge spoilers on them.

Keep the giant spoilers on the ricers please!!!

Actually, instead of making you hunt down the solid pics, I'll put them all here, for you.

I'm thinking about purchasing this spoiler for my Camaro. I currently don't have a spoiler installed....is this worth it or should I just be unique without a spoiler ????

Obviously a one-man (old fart) minority here, but I don't like that spoiler at all. But YOU DO - and that's what matters.
