Agreed. The spoiler looks great Shine, but I would be afraid that at some point during high speed the adhesive may not hold. I liked the idea of a lip of sorts to slide beneath the hatch to help ensure it stays in place. But as it sit right now I would definitely rock that spoiler no doubt.

I've got a lip spoiler on another car of mine and its only held on with 3M tape. That sucker doesn't budge. It's rock solid. I don't think this one should have any issues being held on with only tape.

i think it looks amazing but i wouldn't buy it unless it was secure like no one could walk along and rip it up for there 7 and put some more tape on it or also stated highspeeds....

What is the ETA for this spoiler? I'm waiting patiently.

7syawedis, do you have pictures of the roof spoiler?

That looks great, right along the lines of what I was planning to do on my car.

Aerodynamically, I would prefer to see the spoiler a bit higher and at a more extreme angle.

However, aesthetically speaking... I think you are very close. Just a bit more aggressive and it would look perfect IMO.

I'm also a bit concerned about the mounting situation. A good double sided tape will probably be strong enough, but this is not a preferred mounting method IMO. Unfortunately, I can't think of another way to mount a spoiler like that over the tail lights. Also, will you still be able to remove the tail lights with the spoiler taped on?

I really like the ducktail look. Can't wait to see the final design in CF. Subscribed.

I agree. I think it should be a little higher at an extreme angle to make it stand out more. It would be cool if you could make it so that it pulls in more so that we can mount it to the actual hatch via screws, rather than 3M tape it to the taillights?

Count me in for a CF one. I think it looks good as it is, but like the others, I'm curious as to what else you might come up with.
