weak spoiler

Is it just me or do you think the spoiler on the SS is kind of weak? I not a big fan of the WING or anything, but something descent at least. Like My TA has a nice stock u spoiler. Just wondering if there is something already out from GM that is an easy bolt on and comes painted from the factory.

I kinda like the high wing spoiler, the way it looks on the Build Your Own thing, but I don't get why it's not available with the RS package on an LT, and not at all with the SS. I wouldn't buy a Camaro without the RS because the headlights are a "must have" IMO, but I don't get the restrictions on the HW spoiler...

they tunnel test these cars, that could be one reason the high wing spoiler is officially realeaed yet. i was going to get the high wing, but paps talked me out of it and in to the duck tail, "the one on the dei concept"

High wing spoiler is nice, but is too ricey, so I won't be getting it. I REALLY like the look of the current spoiler on the SS ...

It blends into the lines of the car extremely well, and I like the looks of duck tails a lot moreso.

Stock spoiler is perfect!! Not too much, but gives that nice clean look. I don't want people to notice the spoiler, but notice the car with the spoiler as a part of the overall look. High rise spoiler to me is rice city. In the end, it's what you the owner wants and doesn't matter a bit what me or someone else thinks. Get what you want.

I like that it's subtle, but I like that by changing my to the DJR spoiler I will be more unique. I also like the way the DJR makes it more aggressive looking.

I would like to see a spoiler that is similar to a 1969 Camaro.

The dovetail and high wing spoiler are too much. Too import tuner looking for me.

I don't like the high wing spoiler anyway but the pic at the start of this thread looks like shit. I pray I don't see any camaro's in my neck of the woods with it installed. The dove tail might be ok, I would like to see it in person once its released.

Don't forget you will have to buy a new trunk lid if you get the high wing spoilerdifferent hole pattern...the duck tail has the same holes as the standard SS/RS spoiler...

Sorry, but I don't really see what you're saying. How is the SS spoiler that different from the '69 spoiler? Are you looking for something more like this?

Needless to say, I like the stock '10 spoiler.

Key: RJT Camaro - Photoshopped spoiler
ABM Camaro - Stock RS/SS spoiler
Burgundy Camaro - Stock '69 spoiler

For me, the SS (RS) spoiler is just too flat. It does a nice job of finishing off the back of the 2010 but nothing else. It needs to stick up more like this shot of a '68. It should also not wrap around the sides like the 2nd gen-inspired Blade spoiler that GM is making. It should flow up in the corners like the 1st gen does.

Just my opinion...

Ah, so you basically just want it to be a bigger version of the current spoiler so that it spans from edge to edge of the rear deck, which would also make it taller. Makes sense.

I still like it as it is, though.

don't even think that car requires a spoiler at all, but basic RS lip spoiler is the best choice...

Great... now I'm curious what a 4th Gen Trans Am spoiler would look like on the 5th gen.

Thanks a ton.

Also, can anyone photoshop that for me?

Current spoiler is flat our perfect in size for me. Subtle enough but enough to add a key difference.

I don't like big spoilers for show. I had one of the first G8 GTs and it had the big wing. That was so popular it was immediately dropped.

If you want bigger, go bigger. But I like it exactly the way it is. I am sure you'll have aftermarket opportunities here shortly.
