anyone try this roof spoiler for 6th gen coupes?

JDM 1999 Accord 2 Door Rear Roof Visor w/ Brackets SALE | eBay

this one is only $90. its much bigger than the CF one and im thinking it might flow better for the people with the oem trunklid spoiler.

post pics if u have this or even your opinion. I know they had the 4 dr version forever but I just discovered this coupe version

It looks huge too me... you MIGHT be able to pull it off with the OEM trunk spoiler, but no spoiler or a lip spoiler and I think it would be unbalanced.

my thoughts exactly. I feel like the CF one is a lil too small. Im resistant to put it on for that exact reason. My estimate for taking off the oem spoiler and filling in the holes plus repaint was $400. I need to find someone to swap with. no luck yet

No thanks, it's way too big...and needing an OEM spoiler for it just makes it worse two-fold.

Not only is it ugly- its a copy from the old sunshade made for 94 probe gt= called eclipse- lund later bought them out and quit making the shade because
the car was garbage-( i had one-) ford and mazda mix- fyi

i even sent the vendor a message about how their idea was a knockoff- patented my butt..they copied it and changed it.

spoiler my a$$, look at the size of that thing....


SlowAccord,
I cannot believe you are hesitant to put on the AIT C/F roof spoiler and would rather use that acrylic wing.

The AIT roof spoiler is a freakin work of art. perfect size and perfect fitment.



not berating you my man, just sayin...

Out of practicality, for the price difference, it isn't bad. On the right car it could look o.k. But would really have to see one installed in person. Out of lust I decided between that and the cf one:

$215 shipped. Dunno- just my two cents.

the reason i don't put it on is because I don't like the way it looks with the OEM spoiler. It looks too busy. With the AIT it looks like the OEM spoiler is too high, that's why I was looking at this one. I just wanted more opinions

and I would not put on ANY spoiler without paint first. I don't have any other CF parts and prefer a more OEM look

look at how the bottom outer edges stick OUTSIDE the window and onto the c pillar, looks ghetto. I think you shouldn't bother. It'd look out of place on a nice car like yours. Just paint the cf one and put that on your car.

post pics of your setup clay. I'm basing my opinion off of redryders car. Maybe it's his ride height. Or his lack of window visors that's throwing me off.
