One piece trunk spoiler
(new pics coming soon)
-Carbon fiber or fiberglass options
-Mounts to trunk with included hardware. Use of optional silicone adhesive or high tack double stick tape is recommended.

I like the trunk spoiler but IMO it would look better if it matched up with the rear body lines better. Hard to describe but if it was slightly wider it would look better.

I don't really like any roof spoilers so no comment there.

Edit: Like in this picture you can really see how offset it is. If you could extend it over about three inches or so to meet the body line there.

I agree, I think the rear spoiler doesn't match the body lines well. Wider would be better

I would like to see a rear spoiler similar to the firebreather spoiler.
Man this thing is sexy. I think I have to make my own.

I agree, this spoiler is the best looking hands down. Rideskinz should make this or something slightly different.

Thanks for the comments! FYI the roof spoiler shown in the bad pics is one of the first prototypes, it has changed a bit since we took the pictures. The roof spoiler matches the trunk spoiler a lot more now, with a slight kick up on the back edge. I'll try to get new ones up when I get a chance.

I think if it were wider, it would look like every other spoiler out there. The outer angles of the spoiler match the lines and angle of the fenders really good. Everyone who see's it in person loves it. I'll have to get new pics up, because these pics don't do it justice

Yeah, thats a pretty cool wing, but we're making a wing/spoiler. Kind of a two for one deal

I said the same thing when you first showed photos of it. I think it should line up with the edge of the car. Yeah most do that because it flows better, plus yours will still be unique since it has the opening in the middle. I may be interested in a carbon roof spoiler. I would want to test fit it on my car first to see how it looks.

I think the Firebreather one is ugly. I like the idea of a low wing type spoiler but the lines of it do not match the car at all. I do not like how it dips in the center.

Your spoiler looks good but too narrow, needs to be wider as everyone has said and it also needs to mount using existing holes in trunk, if you do that wou will sell a shitload of them!

Well I guess the crowd has spoken I'll have to make the spoiler wider...lol. The production version will have mounting bolts permanently attached to the bottom that fit through the stock mounting holes.

From reading the other threads, I guess people really like this thing. Maybe we'll have to design something similar...

Yeah if you could get that forward sweeping style down you would sell them like crazy. The thing that sticks out most for me is that it is a "high" wing spoiler, yet it is done very low key and tastefully.

Basically, it looks aggressive but isn't over the top either. Good Luck!

Yeah, I tend to agree with Taylor on the firebreather. The downward v shape makes the wing look weak in the middle. Plus you gotta drill two new holes in your trunk?

The Firebreather spoiler doesn't use any of the stock mounting holes if I remember correctly

If you actually do make a wider version of the pictured spoiler that uses the factory mounting holes I will buy one.

But anyway, back to the subject...lol. Yeah, I think we'll get back in the shop and make our spoiler wider. The prototype spoiler already uses the factory mounting holes so no problem there

Whoohoo! Can't wait to see pictures with the widened spoiler. Do you have a price estimate on a fiberglass version?
