How much would it cost us LA guys to have it installed and the holes filled at your shop? I am interested for sure but I would want it professionally installed and if the price is right I will do it, carbon fiber for me for sure.

I still want one....I'd pull the trigger and buy one tommorrow for $350. if you said it was available for an LS with no holes or factory spoiler.
Thanks

i love it. I think its the best looking after market spoiler out there. Nothing i can really think of to change besides being able to use the factory holes. the supports dont really line up well with the lines of the car anyway, it looks like the supports tilt outwards which looks a little funny or could be improved upon. the mouting holes was the ONLY reason i gave up on it from the original thread. I didnt want to pay more to fix the holes and if i decided to ever change it again or put my original spoiler back on i'd have to re-drill the factory holes and screw up my trunk even more.

Not sure this spoiler is for me, especially given the weight, but I bet there are a fair amount of LS owners out there who would trade you straight up their trunk lid for yours with the factory spoiler. Obviously, that's an irritating matching game that would take some searching and time, but it is an option for those who are serious about this and would like to save a couple hundred dollars on the body work.

Wouldn't hurt to at least put up a feeler in the member classifieds.

Otherwise looks like gmpartsdirect wants almost $300 for just the lid plus paint, so that's not really a feasible option either, as filling the holes would be much cheaper.

Either way, installing this spoiler in the current design is going to be either annoying and time consuming, or very expensive. I think it will be a very limited market when you factor in all of the costs, like Darth Martel has been saying. Hell, the spoiler I want is $385 painted and shipped and I feel like that's an arm and a leg.

That's exactly my point... I think most people want a painted spoiler for under $400 that they can simply remove the old spoiler and bolt on a new one. Most people don't want to mess with the added cost of painting or hole filling. That's the market. If these guys can do something like that then they'll make some sales. If not, eventually there will be a spoiler that comes along that fits people's needs. We'll just have to wait. I applaud these guys efforts for at least gauging interest and asking what changes are wanted. We'll see what happens.

what they could probably do is tweak the posts some so that you can use at least 1 of the factory holes on each post then you either need to add 1 hole or more than likely you can use some of that really good adhesive 3m tape to keep it in place.

my guess is that they have to make their own design based off of the original Firebreather spoiler. It's as simple as moving the pillars to where the factory drill holes are in the design... done. It's not a reinvention of the wheel or splitting an atom. I'm assuming that these things are made from castings so, it's just implementing the design into a casting as opposed to simply copying the original.

Ok, we are waiting for some final production values to come back. However this project has a green light from the factory.

I will begin the pre-order process in a week or so, only needing a half deposit to reserve one.

Hope to have an update shortly guys, thanks!

I have a great shop to get you into- but I don't know their prices off the top.

If you drive up to Elk Grove it may cost anywhere from 80-150 at the shop we contract with.

I think the holes and weight is mostly the concern to the: "I want it now buyers"
No doubt, I know the development side of Viniati will make the holes match factory holes, I will confirm however.

ALSO...Light weight is always our top priority since many of these wings will be on cars that are going to be performance bound. Or at least I know mine will!

These wil not be BONDO or WOOD sculptures weighing down the trunk!

I am thinking it will be too expensive to you if we do full carbon. I was thinking to do a carbon top instead?

I'm not sure why everybody gets all hot and bothered over carbon fiber. It has zero appeal to me. I will not be purchasing one of these with carbon fiber anywhere on it.

UPDATE:
We are finishing the design ideas for the people who have the oem holes on the trunk. The designer is working on a creative idea for it

Thanks for your patience!

You should scrap the spoiler and make a kit to modify the rear end to those tail lights in the original design instead. >.>
