Naked Accord - Missing a Spoiler

For some reason I didn't pay the extra and get the factory spoiler on my new Accord and now I'm regretting it. I've never owned a car without a spoiler before and the car just looks naked.

I know alot of places I can get the stock spoiler. What I am curious about is what other spoilers are out there, which ones do you guys recommend for the Sedan? Preferably something not toooo wild... I still want it to look like a Sedan...

I did the same thing, didn't get a spoiler at the time of purchase. So now I'm getting it installed at my first oil change. $733Can installed for a Honda one, $400CAN installed for an aftermarket. The sedan looks sharp with a spoiler.

Saw one with a hood protector and I thought that looked good, so I'm getting one of those too. $50 extra to get a Honda one vs a Canadian Tire one.

You can get it from www.handaaccessories.com or www.collegehillshonda.com. I have the OEM wing spoiler on mine and I must agree with other people that it looks slightly better. But every person has their own opinion.

DO NOT get those spoilers that claim to be just like OEM from ebay or other sites. If it's not genuine Honda don't get it.

Also, I installed the wing spoiler myself. The holes for it are premarked on the inside and the only difficult thing would be manipulating the springs. It just takes a little bit of muscle (which I didn't have).

Go with the decklid, looks very clean on a sedan. And try to get OEM one, i kind of regret getting an aftermarket one (still looks identical to OEM) because now i have to install the springs separately (which cost me $50 from Honda dealer), and i found a very small scratch on the underside of my trunk . It's a good idea to know which shop you're taking the spoiler to have installed before you buy it. Just my $.02 .

Ok, so I really like the above Kaminari wing... But there are two problems with it...

1) The only picture of the wing on a sedan accord is the one above. That picture doesn't give you a good idea of how the wing looks in proportioned to the rear end or the side of the car.. without being able to see that, I can't commit to it.

2) First quote I got from a body shop to paint just the side pillars and screw four holes in my trunk was $300.... I think that seems a bit stiff..

So I'm probably going to end up going with the factory honda wing. I do like the way the deck lid looks. I think it looks alot sharper on the car, but it just doesn't fit my personality. I need something a bit beefier...

Yeah. I like beefy! The rear wing is an excellent choice, I have the same. The deck lid maybe more classy but this is more sporty
