does it feel more sturdy the way you have it bolted? when i read the offically instructions for the oem spoiler they use brackets to support the spoiler, im just wondering if these small screws will be enough to hold the spoiler in place
Yeah but I didn't know about the brackets either. I know the real stock one also comes with a new spring system, that rod you need a special tool to install, but my trunk opens and stays open fine.

I went to a.local hardware store but Lowes or home depot would be fine. It doesn't open all the way when u push the button anymore, just about an inch or so. I wasn't to concerned.

different looking, but I think with the way the mounting holes are drilled for the current one (kind of a triangle on each side) I don't think you could use this without a hole showing on each side unless you plugged them.

I ended up changing the tips to something more subtle that wasn't as close to the bumper..

Came across your car in the forums, I like it. I almost have the same car, except I just have a T instead of an L for the model. Do you remember what exhaust tips you got and where you got them from? I like how those are pretty subtle like you mentioned.

Auto Zone, $12.99 each... They have a mesh layer inside them. I trimmed the back part at the bottom to allow the tip to be more angled - the top of the tip is just barely visible. You have to trim.the stock exhaust exit as well.

Gotcha, thanks. I might look into a solution like that then.

I replaced some of the bulbs with LEDs:

Low Beam:

Fog Lights: (had to trim the tabs on the LEDs to get to fit, but not a huge deal)

Brake Lights: (didn't touch the 3rd brake light though)

and the Backup lights: (These are way more intense than I thought they would be, helps the backup camera at night a LOT)
