    Gen 1 spoiler is there anything different? we have 2 horrible options

    we have a basic low spoiler or the duck spoiler are there any other options?

    Re: Gen 1 spoiler is there anything different? we have 2 horrible options

    To my knowledge, there are:
    Lip style (3 piece stick on)
    GT Style
    High GT Style (just taller version of GT)
    Duck Bill (I like these honestly, but never seen a version that wasn't quite expensive - like what I have better)
    Prior Designs (Big wing)
    Maxton Designs (Big wing)
    APR (BIGGGGG wing)
    Vorsteiner Gen 2 modded (I believe someone has gotten a gen 2 vorsteiner to work on a Gen 1 - don't think it fits well personally from what I remember, but taste is super subjective - no idea how they managed it)

    The APR was a bit too much for my tastes (for a street car), the prior designs is expensive and I don't think it fits the car well - very straight lines on a naturally curvy car.

    I have the Maxton, only ever saw the renders on their site when I bought it, took a risk and am quite happy. I think it fits the car well (end plate plane lines up with the slope of the quarter well, curve matches natural curve of bumper, etc). Still haven't seen it on any other car (in person or pictures). It's heavy, but well built and bolts into existing locations on the frame of the hatch. Had it on the track and to high speeds with no issues. Does require paint/wrap. End caps are just ok if you look closely, might have some dry carbon ones made eventually. Makes the hatch heavy enough that the struts don't like it (stays up sometimes, sometimes needs a prop if not on perfectly level ground or nose down).

    At work so I can't post photos, but I have a bunch on my instagram (@driven_rmg) if you're curious.

    Looks like a custom job to me, that's always an option, but it won't be cheap. Could ping them and find out.

    Looks good! The Maxton one I have is newer I think, I still haven't seen it on any other car.
