    Just installed a eBay version of a DTO V-type spoiler on my son’s 2018 Sport.

    I must say, it really does make a nice appearance difference over the stock lower hatch spoiler.

    We bought to pre-painted version (glossy black) as recommended from another forum member (CVCTURBO) who had posted a review on this particular item.

    Not only is the spoiler well-made and nicely painted, shipping was probably the fastest I’ve ever experienced from an overseas purchase...2 days to my doorstep.

    For those not wanting to go thru the hassle of installing a type R spoiler, this is a great alternative. It took me about 10 minutes to install.

    I just wanted to pass it on for those looking for a nice spoiler from a good seller.

    Hows the wing holding up? Looks Good. I originally wanted your wing. I put on a small lip instead. Had it painted to the color of my grill. It works for now till I get board of it.

    Thanks!

    To be honest, we just put it on yesterday & he hasn’t driven the car for any length of time.

    The spoiler came with a large roll of trim tape which bonded well. I used a heat gun to prep the surface for good adhesion. It seems very secure.

    How is the rear view with the spoiler? Does it obstruct the view noticeably?

    While you do notice the spoiler is there, the difference is negligible. Maybe an additional inch of obstruction...if that.
