just ordered mine through ebay instead of foreman performance because they never responded to me about their lip spoiler. I got 46.25 inches in swp so hopefully it'll fill the whole space. The pics make it look great so far. Cant wait!

Did you ever order the shorter one? If yes & installed, I'd love to see some pics.

Really interested in one of these, but curious to see how they are holding up? Also, Ive never messed with 3M tape before. Will it leave any nasty gunk behind when/if you were to take the spoiler off a year or so down the road?

I've run mine for a year, even through a New England winter. No issues whatsoever.

I've asked once before (many moons ago) and never got any responses. For those of you that have installed these, how did you actually do it?

I'm looking for tips on getting it to cleanly follow the edge of the trunk lid, keeping it centered, did you peel off all the cover on the adhesive at once, or did you do it gradually as you installed the spoiler, etc etc.

Thanks!

When I installed mine I had another person help me out. I first washed the car, and then went a step further and cleaned the surface with rubbing alcohol just in case. Then I lined the spoiler up with the red lining still on and just eyeballed how much space should be left on each side to look even.

Then I laid down the spoiler slowly, guiding it with my thumb on the back of the trunk (see in the pics above how it has a little lip, my thumb was under that and flat against the back of the trunk). As i was laying down the spoiler, I had someone else pull back the red lining while holding it up so it wouldn't accidentally stick to the truck.

The spoiler itself is really flexible, so it can curve anyway you want it. I am very satisfied with how the spacing and position turned out, especially by just eyeballing it. Some may measure, but I didn't.

Hope this helps for anyone looking to install one! I am very happy with the purchase, and for $49 painted AND shipped, you can't beat it! Thanks again to the original post!

This is SWEET! Are the 02-07 trunks also 46" length?

I'm sorry if someone has already answered this question in the thread somewhere

Anyone else try this on a 08+ WRX or STI? I really like it on xbeamelite's car, just can't decide if I want paint matched or OBP for my SSM.

What do you guys think?

Thanks for the explanation, Rhefqab. I was thinking a second set of hands would be very helpful, and it sounds like I was right to think that.

Just installed unpainted version on MY11 5-dr 2.5i rear spoiler.




I originally ordered 39", but I had to cut it to 37" because the spoiler has too much curve at the sides. I can totally feel the EXTRA DOWNFORCE it creates now...

Bought one for the hell of it. Paint match is perfect...can easily justify the 49 bucks.

This looks great on the sedan! I'm not feeling it in the least bit on the hatch.

Personally I like the color contrast. I think I'll be getting 38 inch long OBP for my white hatch.

Default TS interest

I know some of you said you were interested in the STI TS style spoiler. Stumbled upon what looks like a replica on Ebay.

Thought I'd share the link:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/NNR-TRUNK-SP...80385349433%26


Problem is that the price is still pretty steep. Also doesn't come painted it looks like Anyways, thought i'd share.

Did you order with the 46.25" measurement? If not, what size did you order?
