It's not bad looking to me, but I don't think it adds much sportiness to the car aesthetically...

here is the specter..i had it for about a yr. it is recently starting to chip at the lip. ill take a pic if you guys what to see...did caddy paint it, or , did it come painted. I just might try the caddy one. its the same spoiler. Im thinking that the specter one is a two piece part. Molded together...and mine is starting to chip...i could be wrong. Ill add the pic later.

I was going to get one myself but..... I dont like the dip in the top part, i wish it was just flat on top. From the back it looks killer! Im still thinkin about gettin one and just fillin it in with body puddy but i have the other style wing on it right now and my money could go to better places on the car. Just my opinion!(If you dont know what im talking about, just look at the STS wing! Its BEAUTIFULL! someone should step up to the plate and mold the sts wing for the CTS.

GT04 CTSV,

Great looking spoiler. Pictures don't do it real justice.

Venemous V,


It looks much better in person I said the same thing until I saw it installed on my car!

BBC -

Totally agree. Looks much better in person. I like the way the spoiler follows the lines of the car. Even the creases in the deck lid flow into the spoiler. Oh yea, the added benefit is that it covers the top of the third brake light.

SBones -

Looks like it's molded in one piece, I had a bud of mine at the local body shop shoot the paint.

Devil -

James was responsible for getting me the spoiler.

I guess it's OK if you like making your V look better or something. :yawn:

This is certainly a matter of taste. Some people are going to like that spoiler, some people are not. I don't, and I mean no offense.
I have always liked the understated power and elegance in the stock V. Sort of like Caine in Kung Fu - who always surprises the bad guys when he kicks their asses.
Having the spoiler, on the other hand, makes an aggressive statement. More like Arnold - when the bad guys see him they know they're going to get their asses kicked.

The Straight-on back shot looks sweeet... Would you happen to have a full length side photo from bumper to bumper. I would like to see that. BTW... What is the part number. :)

When you put on the spoiler, did you have to drill large holes in the inner trunk lid to access the bolts? If so what size did you drill. Also, how did you align the spoiler, with the studs in the spoiler you can't lay it right on the deck lid. What size nuts did it take? Thanks

Yeah, but ole Caine took a lot of shit before he put his flute and satchel down. Arnold, on the other hand just blew them away without any emotional stress or negative karma.

It's all good...

Yes, had to drill the inside of the trunk lid, used a Step bit and stopped at 1-1/8". I aligned the spoiler using masking tape. I put masking tape on the trunk lid where the bolts where, then aligned the spoiler making sure it was centered left to right. I then made sure the spoiler was aligned on the edge of the trunk lid on both sides of the third braked light. After checking things about 10 times, I made marks on the masking tape with a pencil where the bolts contacted it. Said some prayers and drilled away. I then used a center punch to locate the holes on the inside deck lid. Then drilled the inside holes using the step bit.

The nuts/washers are the exact same as the ones used to hold on the reverse / license plate assembly. I ordered them though my local GM dealer.

BTW - I had to remove the trunk lid to shake out all of the metal shavings. Couldn't stand the noise every time I opened the trunk. :)

Just a thought here... would it not have been been easier to make a paper/cardboard template (of the bottom) of the spoiler with the bolt holes marked on the template, then place the template on the rear deck, align the template, then drill holes? No need to measure 10 times or say numerous prayers before drilling; one of each would be sufficient.
Just my idea here as I was contemplating installing a spoiler also - just haven't found one I like yet.

Already had a template - the spoiler :). The whole alignment and drilling process took less than 10 minutes.

Nope, no one was interested in making it. Its actually an E&G spoiler that I cut apart. The E&G peice went over the tail lights. I cut the ends off, got rid of the top body line that matched the trunk lid and flattened it out on top.
You could possibly talk a fiberglass shop into doing the same.
