Cool Spoiler

Hey

Just traded in my 1.4 Type S with the R spoiler and a few mods to make it look sportier for a 1.8EX, couldn't ask for anything more inside it however the outside is lacking in anything eye catching or "sporty" so I'm trying to comprise and make it look decent outside too.

Has anyone put a spoiler on theirs? If so how did you get on?Where did u get it and how much?

Thanks in advance

I'm assuming you have a 9g EX? It does seem like a little less that we can do with the 9g's to improve the sportiness of them. There is a spoiler but I think a large number of people think it looks pants and it sounds ridiculously complicated to install. At most I think there are trim garnishes and you have the sports tank lids, but that seems to be about it in Honda original bits. Certainly not as dramatic as bolting an R spoiler onto any other 8g model!

Cheers,

Stu

Just an update for anyone else who may stumble across this in future.

I picked my car up today 9G 1.8Ex in blue from my local honda garage... Asked regarding the spoiler on the sport for example if I would be able to buy it and install.

Was told by the parts guy that they no longer supply the spoilers for the 9G as they were having alot of people complaining of them " falling off" so it's been discontinued until further notice as an accessories as they may look in future if there enough demand to redo it.

I was wondering why I couldn't even find a replica one I guess that's why!

Oh well tint the windows and live with the more casual look car for now! All the extras of the Ex I'm sure will be worth it

Today received Honda genuine roof spoiler. The code was 08F02-TV0-630.
The replacement code is 08F02-TV0-631B for Polished Metal

Do you have a photo after installation? Where did you purchase the spoiler from?

That's a bargain for 80! I've been watching the eBay spoilers for a while now, the extra cost of having it resprayed has put me off so far. Following this thread, looking forwards to the photos, thanks!

That looks great @I-VTEC 2012 - Much subtler than I expected, the OEM fit certainly shows!

Looks brilliant


30 minutes labour isn't too bad, will look around for a deal. The RRP is 350 roughly!
