Spoiler colour

I took the plunge and ordered a type r spoiler, I'm toying with the idea of matt or gloss black or colour code silver same as car. I'm also doing the type r conversion and again toying on the same idea.

Just after some other people opinions as I can't make me mind up if it will look good or crap lol.

I did the type r trim swap on my old silver 5 door, I'd say the trim and spoiler will look way better in silver than black.

Good call, check photo's of cars and see how different spoiler colours look.

If a car has a colour theme, then a different colour can look good. But more often than not, I'd say go with body colour.

I'd say stick with body colour.

I have some TypeR body bits in the for sale section if you haven't looked yet.

Same colour as mine, looks great that.

I'm struggling to find front arches, not cheap to do though hey.

My spoiler here Friday

Yes I've done the swap a couple of times and ended up buying front arches new as I couldnt find them in my colour. Most fn2s being stripped seem to be red or black. I'll keep a look out for you as I buy/sell a few parts on different sites

Cheers thanks I am looking for everything still at the moment other than spoiler, but its hard to find them at a reasonable price. I'm not tight lol but some people take the **** on second hand bits especially on old cars.

I'm the same. All my parts I try to get a deal on. Had a few good deals. I've got a black 5 door just now I'm thinking of doing the trim swap on. Theres good deals sometimes on ebay but you have to be quick.
