I really want one of these on my fn2 but they seem to be pretty rare to find and ebay is dry of anything.

Does anyone know the best place to obtain one? i've seen a few on some jap supplier sites with international shipping to here in the UK but to be honest with you guys, the prices are absolutely ridiculous especially when fiberglass parts are suppose to be fairly light weight too their having a laugh at us. We're talking stupid amounts of money for a bloody wing, in a lot of cases a huge % portion of the price of the whole car itself :/

I really want one as i love the edge it gives to the fn2 but i'm not going to give in for the prices i'm seeing, it's absolute robbery and in my opinion you have to be nuts even so.

anyone know how much it would roughly cost to get it painted and fitted anyway? i don't think i can do it myself could i? my fn2 is milano red

Hendy, Matt @ Injection, TDI north.

Prepare to spend a small fortune, and then some for having it painted properly.

Fit it yourself, 20mins of a job if that.

thanks for the help guys looking them up now, much better prices to be fair but not sure how i'll do painting them myself if i decide to as i've never done bodykit painting EVER! so not even sure of the method and i'm definitely looking at the unpainted ones as the ready painted ones are far too expensive for me

The typerkits spoiler is apparently of very good quality, shipped all primed ready to be painted, so it will save abit of £ on preparing in the paint shop, just spray with paint and put the damn spoiler on

Don't spray it yourself. Take it to a body shop. Any kind of body repair centre should be able to do it. I just bought the typerkits one. So have a lot of other members. Quality is ment to be outstanding.

Mugen one is also top quality. [smilie=ebil-thumbu:

In terms of painting cost, depending on where/quality/labour rates expect 150-300. I wouldn't advise doing it yourself unless your a painter. Its an expensive mistake if you get it wrong :)

Drop any one of these a thread on their forum section, they can hook you up:
- Matt : Injection Imports (Has a forum section)
- Simon: Hendys Performance
- TDI North/South

Simon at hendy's for me, has always sorted me excellent deals on my mugen kit, as for paint body shops charge around 30 an hr plus paint and with mugen you require no prep work, I also have the type r kits vented fenders and my body shop highly praised the quality and finish. Me personally if going down the spoiler route it would have to be genuine same as the front grille (as your sporting their badge) but with things like bonnets, fenders, etc etc I would buy high quality aftermarket

thanks for all the responses guys, will likely go for the typeRkits one as i really don't have all that money for the original and the money save is a no brainer to me anyway. I think the typeRkits one turns out to be £400 including delivery to me for the non-painted option but i'd really like to be able to paint it myself as buying the milano red paint is cheap in the can off ebay but i'd have to paint the top of the wing black right? so what paint would i need for that? any black will do? Considering i've never painted kits before do you think i could do it just being really careful? I have an A in art from back in school? HAHA :p will the finish come out looking bad without professional tools from body shops? what would be the best method? and lastly can a paint brush be used with a lot of patience? (im good with patience and accuracy so i'm not worried about that). I just don't want to be spending any more money to be honest, it's a chunk of money as it is which i'm willing to give up cause i love these spoilers so much but spending anymore isn't very justified in my mind especially if i can potentially do it myself + I already know i can fit the spoiler myself anyway cause i've figured out how to, it's a peace of cake :)

So you have never painted a body part before, and you are asking if you can do it with a brush !?

This has to be a troll surely.

Don't try it yourself mate, get a few quotes from bodyshops.
LOL! ye will do mate just one more silly question, the spoiler is normally painted before it's actually fitted right? [smilie=dunce.gif]
