I have the current 'Trunk Spoiler' fitted to my 2007 5-door ...

Lovely piece of kit - it has 2 small bolted brackets, and I think there is bonding involved as well ...

'Andy' from Gordons Honda (one of the dealers in here) is the man to talk to - and they give a discount to Civinfo members ...

Do the brackets go to the single bolt on the underside on each side? Hope that makes sense!

I believe so - but I had my dealer fit mine, so not 100% certain ...

Yip, the brackets fold around the edge of the tailgate and attach to the bottom (with the tailgate open) bolt.



Here's a pic from when I fitted mine.

Its apparently of the Grand prix pack as the image pack was the earlier one, doesn't mean anything to me apart from the guy at Honda said the spoiler retails at £327.07 inc vat and the full kit comes out at over £1500 Have to get pics once its fitted mate

That's a cracking deal, especially as it's already painted in Milano. Pretty sure it's the same spoiler from the image pack,although if it's the Type S (trunk spoiler) it's an even better deal adds a real nice touch to the rear of the car. Good luck with the fitting....get the pics up!

Yum Yum!! That's gonna look very tasty

If you have any white spirit, give the plexiglass a quick wipe down with it before you apply the spoiler.
