Default Aerokit Spoiler Lip

Well the time has come to replace my beat up front spoiler lip and i have been looking at either Sport Design lip or the Aerokit.i think i like the middle portion of the aerokit and any change for a 4 year old car is a good thing.

has anyone made the change? thoughts? and where do you go to get the front lip actually painted to your car color

Have had it on for a few years now. Love the aggressive look.

when you had it installed, did they do the paint work for you there? what was the total for paint/labor?

the labor is a joke its a few rivets but i am getting ducks in a row. and yes that looks great on the front of your car

I had it painted at a paint shop, don't recall exact price but I think it was around the $280 range.

I installed it myself. Really easy. Don't pay someone to do it for you. Do it yourself!

One you remove rivets for old bumper, push down hard and the spoiler will unhook. The new one snaps into place and then put rivets in.

Are the rivets reusable? I'm planning on doing the same myself!

I bought a new spoiler and had it shipped directly to Eric at Bumperplugs.com and he painted it and shipped it back to me. If you cannot find a local place that you trust will do it consider what I did...Eric does a perfect job and better than OEM.

That is actually a great idea. Wish I had thought of that back then.

Needless to say touch bases with him before you do it, if you decide to do so, and remind him that he did Bob Z.'s spoiler recently. He reused the box it was shipped in to send it back to me but it took me 15 minutes to unpack it since he protected it that well!

Could you post a photo of your car with Miami Blue spoiler? Iĺm debating doing the same thing.
Thanks!

I think it looks much better painted although the color of the car matters, and my side skirts and rear valance are also painted so leaving it Black did not look complete:
