    Alright, by looking at a crash guide, it looks like this is the standard STS spoiler.

    The v spoiler just sits off the lid, nothing special to it like addition lighting or cut outs for around the light.

    You are correct that is not an sts-v spoiler, in a v spoiler the third brake light will mount in the spoiler, no special bezel of any kind, and it is the same third brake light that is on any sts

    Yeah that is not an STS-V rear spoiler. The STS-V OEM spoiler would require you to transfer your 3rd brake light into the new unit.

    Thanks,
