I personally only used the alcohol wipe and double side tape. It holds really strong. Highway speed test passed without any issues

I used 2 long strips and taper cut them at the ends so they fit the contour of the spoiler

I didnt use the wipes or the primer. I have no idea if that stuff is good for the paint in the long run. I followed this guys install pretty much: (In regards to where the tape should be placed)

Received the Jet Black spoiler today, about a week to get to me(Hawaii). Took a few quick photos of it this morning before work.

Here are the pictures I have of mine. I don't know how long it's been on and the car has been in the south it's whole life I believe. Here's what it looks like now:

So I was excited to install today and I ended up with this!? Am I being stupid or did I get a lemon? I flushed the mid section to the rim but the sides are way too high???

Can anyone help?

Did the trunk design changed from 2011 to 2013? I know the seller only lists up to 2011 but it's still a e82 design?

This may be a weird request but can someone post pictures of the spoiler from inside of their car? (White if possible) Preferably one from the reflection in the rear view mirror and then one straight out of the back window. I am curious to how high the spoiler is visibility wise.

Put the spoiler on today. I spent a good while getting off the residue from the stock one, ended up using Tarminator with pretty good results. Fits perfectly, and no problems with the 3M tape provided, it's very secure. The paint looks dead on with my jet black. Overall, I would say it's definitely worth $88. I also like how it's paint matched instead of carbon fiber.

It looks like you don't have the spoiler sitting far enough back. It should run along the sharp edge of the trunk. Not in where the original spoiler sits. Or the trunk profile may have changed slightly. Do a cross reference on realOEM.

Perfect fit...

I installed my spoiler this week-end. Everything was perfect. Good communication with the seller, very fast shipping (4 days to Canada... wow...) fitting and color matching is perfect ! I ordered a Metalic space grey spoiler.

Thanks for the pic, hasn't seen a performance spoiler in person. Doesn't stick up nearly as much as I thought it would. It may be time to pull the trigger.

Hi! I've got Space Gray as well! I was wondering who you ordered it from and what you did to make sure it was the Space Gray color?

Thanks!

Edit: Ooh never mind I think I found out. It's the A52 paint code.

Yes, just ask for paint code #52. Here are some pictures...
