I can vouch for this.

Agreed, but the pictures posted here do not look like they have a spray nozzle in 'em.

Correct. The OE screws mount horizontally. These look to be more vertically oriented.

Kinda interesting that the mounting holes have the 4 outboard holes bigger then the 3 midline ones. The OE wing uses 3 bolts on the midline and 4 screws outboard. This one looks like the exact opposite.

The wing itself looks great, seems like it is a well made piece.

Does the 3D Carbon wing mount in the same holes as the factory wing? No drilling is required?

What should it run to get a wing painted at a body shop? Curious if anyone with blue candy has changed their wing and had any issues with the color matching. I remember a thread here where someone who had a fender bender had to make multiple trips to the body shop because of paint matching issues.

Well then I stand corrected. Oops.

I've been quoted $125-150 for my spoiler to get painted. I've heard quotes as high as $250 for painting... Just depends on the shop and the work they do.

The 3d Carbon and ST spoiler use all the same mounting points.

Lots of great inputs guys I really appreciate it. I'm only a couple weeks into owning the car so I don't have very much experience with the platform just yet. I am test fitting it on the car on Saturday. Will report back with more info then.

No drilling required. Took me about 20 minutes to install.

I was just quoted $90 from a mom and pop body shop local to me. That is for the silver paint. Red is the most expensive. I'm shopping local small body shops for the best price.
