Type r spoiler for a type s ? ?

I thought I had read somewhere that a Type R spoiler could be attached to a Type S ? ( I have a 2007 Civic Type S gt ctdi 3 door)

Having seen this item Genuine Honda Civic Type-S Boot Spoiler-All Colours-2007-2011 [08F10SMG620*] - £245.00 : Cox Motor Parts Direct - Genuine Honda Brakes Clutches & Accessories I assumed it was similar to a Type R and asked my local Honda (Sunderland) dealer about it and if they could fit it, they said : -
It is not a job we have done before but it could be done, we would need to
order in the standard type R spoiler as Honda don't do this as an accessory
part and the lower window would need to be replaced as it is different on
the Civic Type R because it has the holes in for the spoiler + the spoiler
would need to be painted Blueish Silver. The prices are -

Parts - Spoiler £573.61 inc vat + extra window £544.48 + clips,bolts etc =
£1359.70 inc vat

Paint Cost £120.00 inc vat

Labour £168.00 inc vat

Total £1647.70 inc vat


Which of course I won't go with. . . . and replied :-
Naturally I wont take you up on this offer , as the link showed Cox motors sells the part sprayed and ready to fit for £294 and most DIYers fit them just by drilling a couple of holes, I just assumed you being the "experts" could get a £294 spoiler and attach it the way half these Honda enthusiasts do for about £50 -£100 saving me the bother.

[/COLOR]

To which they said :-

No problem I have checked Cox Motors website and the only thing I would be very care full. Just they use the picture of the spoiler on the Civic 5dr as well and the part number they are giving on the picture isnít a Type R spoiler it is much thinner than the picture and the price is exactly the same as the thinner one from Honda. If that is the case I could match that price for the thinner spoiler which is the accessory spoiler for your model. If I was you before I order off them I would get in touch with them & make sure it is a Type R spoiler which you are ordering.



To which you will be thinking what a load of wind this is ha ha , BUT, I guess I got it wrong the Cox ad does say a Type S spoiler, is the photo showing the correct item OR a Type R ? Can't say I was aware of what the Honda lad said, ie that its fitted to a 5 door Type S? Don't think I have actually seen one .

So 4 questions. . . .
1 Is this spoiler really totally different to a Type R ?
2 Can a genuine Type R spoiler be fitted cheaper/easier than he says?
3 if it is different, Is this Type S spoiler much easier to fit than a Type R ?
4 Is the Type S spoiler nothing like the photo but wafer thin and sits on the original except it is colour coded, which means I already have it anyway. . .

Replace the rear window ! Ha ! Best thing iv ever heard. Take it to a body shop and they will probably paint it and for it for £150 ish. It coats me £300 to have mine sprayed, fitted and remove a massive cress put down the side

Sounds like they have no idea or are trying it on.
Buy a second hand spoiler for £150 and bond it on with Sikaflex (£10).
Done.

The other spoiler is just a lip spoiler and that is only bonded on too. It is very different to the CTR one.

Have to agree, I bought mine for £140 and bonded it on (Sikaflex £10)

Job done

Is it that simple ? Stick adhesive on it and stick it over the top of the original ? ? or does it require much else done to it ? (excuse my ignorance ). Would the "lip" spoiler have to be removed ?

my dealership told me the same thing, apparently the type r has a bootlid that already has the holes in it, where as the 5 door doesnt... i got a type r spoiler and some black silcone type adhesive and bonded the spoiler on and its now on more solid than my type s smaller spoiler ever was.

Hi,

"Total £1647.70 inc vat" is criminal, but guess they only want to do this with all original parts.

Whether genuine or a GRP replica Type R spoiler from ebay (approx £90), there's no need to remove anything from your Honda.
Genuine may have captive bolts, but you can remove
The GRP replica (well the one I have) nothing to remove, it has captive nuts in the front but are recessed.

The spoiler just fits on top of the existing rear plexi-glass hump.
So just get it painted and you can bond it on.

There are lots of threads, such as

Absolutely ridiculous! Have a look at mine or anyone else's build thread for how to fit one. It's extremely easy!

The type s spoiler is the same as a type r one in shape just alot smaller I had it on my type s and it's connected with adhesive tape and a bracket at each end, very quick and easy to fit but I prefer the type r spoiler

This is what I love about home-grown modding. Where there's a will - there's a way. Perfectly done Karlos
