today i saw a 11 reg CTS of which i really liked the look of what seemed a low profile spoiler? is the CTS and the CTR rear spoiler larger/wideR? or are they the same. or does a low profile spoiler really exist as i do not want a saburu style whale spoiler.

i have never painted before so just thinking to buy any random colour cheapest spoiler and carbon wrap it?

and does it obscure the existing centre brake lights on my 1.8 ex?

Honda Civic 2006-on Type R Spoiler | eBay

Brief Boot Spoiler Fitting Instructions


1. Locate the two bolts near the gas struts which hold the perspex cover on

2. Remove these bolts and drill them out to allow the supplied bolts to pass through

3. Continue with the drill to pass straight through the perspex cover

4. Open the holes out in the perspex to around 20mm

5. With assistance using the supplied bolt check that they will enter the captive nuts in the spoiler

6. Remove the spoiler and the internal cover that covers the brake light and drill 2 x 5mm holes, one on each side of the brake light

7. Apply a rubber glue around these holes and the two outer 20mm holes and attach the spoiler with the supplied bolts, partially tighten down.
Hold the spoiler down in the center to touch the tailgate and pilot a 3mm hole through the two shall holes, either side of the brake light,
using the two supplied screws tighten the spoiler down.

8. Finally tighten the two outer bolts, until they go tight, do not go beyond this point as they are a set length bolt, purpose made for this spoiler

9. Spoiler now completely fitted.

Sold the type s one purely because I liked the chunkier type r spoiler more and there was one going for a good price on the forum.
Now have a Type R so took the spoiler off my S and sold it on the forum last week!

Maybe...the cts spoiler is alot thicker than the one you pictured but only about 1.75 inches thinner side profile wise than the ctr one.
In all honesty if you want to pay out for one get the type r one - u won't regret it; makes a huge difference. They go for around £100 on the forum.

Yeah - there are 3 OEM types ...

The first picture is the 'Lip' spoiler - the second is a pukkah CTR spoiler ...

The CTS spoiler is very similar to the CTR one, but the sides are not as deep (the CTR's goes down and onto the painted section) ...

However, the CTS one doesn't need you to drill holes in your Civic ! ...

in ref to ebay add Honda Civic 2006-on Type R Spoiler | eBay .

sellers advises its 170 colour coded / fitted for type r spoiler . good price ?
ive got that one, from the same seller too. but had it painted myself. Its a replica Type-R spoiler.

You can get away with just bonding that on. Ive done that because i didnt want holes drilled in the car... with a genuine Type-R spoiler i think you have to bolt it on?...

£100 is probably the going rate for a good paint job... so £170 doesnt seem too bad.

lol i have just been looking at your WIP threads strangely enough .

is fibre glass better then becos its lighter >? its 70 for the spoiler so im thinking 100 labour painted/ fitted is not bad really ?

do you have any problems with the weight of spoiler + tailgate on the gas trusts not lifting it? my civic already lifts slowly in cold weather after half way i have to help it up lol

I wouldnt say its better...or lighter because i havent felt how heavy a real Type-R spoiler is. Its not very heavy at all though. £100 for paint and fit isnt bad no. They dont take much to fit if you're having it glued on. It's no work at all really. Put it this way, it would probably still be about £100 for painting only.

I never noticed any difference opening the boot to be honest...im sure its the same as without it!
