Picked up the Spoiler today.
It's dry but still curing. Should have it on the car tomorrow.

Assembled and ready to go on.
Had some very slight fitment issues with one of the side pieces having a 1mm gap larger than the other side. Took a drill bit, opened up the 3 holes that mount the side piece to to the main piece, and viola. That was the only issue with the whole thing, zero comlaints for a $130 item.
Color match is great. In person they color is identical. Hard to tell by pictures because of the lighting and angles.

It also takes some guessing as to what provided hardware is used for which part, as you get two different types of screws, and 4 of type A are used for the black pieces to affix, if you try to use type B by the time the bottom out the pieces are not tight, and 6 of the type B attach the sides. And the Remaining 7 Type A's apparently attach the spoiler to the hatch.

Nice job man. That car looks great. Where did you find that 20" LED? I really like that. And how is it wired up?

Damn son. Looking good. Wish mine fit like that.

which spoiler do you have?

I know right, I feel like I got lucky. The gap all the way around the spoiler to the vehicle is visibly perfectly even.

The same one you got man. But the gap on my driver side is atrocious. The passenger side looks good though.

I think you could fix this your self, possibly, without requiring it to be repainted.

On the Main bottom wing piece where it attaches to the sides with 3 screws, You can use a drill bit that fits through the screw holes to ream them out in one direction or another to adjust how it mounts position-ally to the main bottom spoiler piece.
I had to do the same with one of mine just to get the 3 screw to line up for assembly, and ended up moving the holes in a bit so each side has the same gap at the bottom on the spoiler itself. I think this had a positive side effect of making mine line up with the vehicle on each side perfectly.

My Passenger side


Drivers side, bigger gap initially


I marked the holes with a black magic marker where I wanted to open them up some and used a cordless drill and drill bit to ream them out in the direction needed. After maybe 5 minutes of careful work, I put it back together and it was perfect, and the above gaps were the same.

I drilled from the bottom side, but I do not have a picture from that angle. I only needed to take off a few mm worth of material to make the holes correct.

Hope it helps. I noticed on mine that the spots where the holes were drilled weren't drilled out dead center on that side, like there is a flat spot where the holes are drilled, and on this side they were not in the middle. you will see what I'm talking about if you take your wing off and back apart. Let me know how it goes :D

small update:

Received a 28" curved LED light bar to replace my 20" straight. Unfortunately due to the design of the housing, not the curve, it does not fit. The heatsinks in the back make the unit too thick and it comes in contact with the grill, a good 3/4" too thick.

Also received the 3D kagu floormats today. They are nice. My Dead pedal attached to it perfectly also. No overhang.

If you’re just looking to go a little bit longer I know the Auxbeam 22” bar fits in that spot and has a couple inches to spare.

Since I have to run a front plate I was thinking of getting one of these and mounting a curved light bar on top of it.
