    Damaged chin spoiler...

    Alright, It finally happened, I took out a chin spoiler on a parking block. The dealer wants to sell a kit for $230 that includes all three front pieces. That seems a bit steep. Could real carbon fiber be that much more? Any suggestions to cut the cost down a bit?

    ^^^ - Check with Luke at Lindsay Cadillac for a much better price, (about half of what you were quoted), for the parts, (includes all 3 pieces). If you have a lift or ramps, it's not hard to do the job yourself.

    Re: Damaged chin spoiler...

    i just bought a 10k mile used sedan, and someone here realized my 3 piece spoiler was gone--i didn't even realize it. you can get the kit on here for around $150. i paid my dealer $170 for the kit, and installation. $250 is too much

    Wow - I must have gotten a good deal then at my Cadillac dealer parts department... I paid $138 for the kit (can't buy pieces individually) and installed the piece I needed in less than 5 minutes. If you do a little searching, you will find this deal... if you can't find it, I will set you up with the parts guy at my dealer.

    When I priced it through Lindsay, it was $120, but the shipping cost made it much higher than me just buying it locally. Plus, my dealer had them in stock to buy that same day.

    I put carbon fiber on the front of my VCoupe. I have the factory stuff. If you are interested PM me and we'll see what we can do. I think I paid $150 parts and labor to replace the factory stuff once; the carbon fiber is $795.

    Re: Damaged chin spoiler...

    Yes my question too. I cringe everytime I pull in to a parking sport with curbs thinking what is it going to cost me if the curb is a little high and I hit it with the bumper. I am curious what it will cost me if the front air dam is damaged from a curb.

    Re: Damaged chin spoiler...

    When I bought my car, the driver side was broken. At least it is a wear item. Not sure if I will ever pop for the $800 carbon fiber versions

    FYI - checked my invoice from Lindsay - $116 plus $12 shipping for $128 which is a fair prive. I also like to send him as much business as possible since he helps support this forum.

    The carbon fiber chin is actually 3 pieces. The middle piece extends out as far as the two outside pieces, and I personally think it is a better look than the factory stuff. Of course, one encounter with a curb will have me crying.
