I've never been a huge fan of spoilers, body kits etc., but the OEM trunk spoiler for our cars looks pretty good. It's subtle, but IMO gives the rear a sportier feel. Dealers are asking $450 plus $100 installation. My parts guy was able to find a vendor with the same OEM part for around $250. They come painted. Not sure if install involves drilling into the trunk and what that means for a lease.

I'd really like to see one on the car before ordering. Any of you guys have this spoiler, or pics of it on a vsport?

Re: OEM Trunk spoiler

Had one put on at the dealer - no drilling necessary. Just a few commen tools to pop the trunk liner. 4 screws hold it on. Got the dealer to throw in the labor as a part of the deal (it took all of 15 minutes). Hae attached some pictures (not sure why, but they may come up upside down?)

Re: OEM Trunk spoiler

Thanks for the pics, cckk. It looks great! Subtle yet just sporty enough to make a difference. What did the dealer charge you for one? I'm debating ordering one on a site I know nothing about called iamgmparts.com for a bit less than $300, or just paying the $450 the dealership is asking.

Edit: Just ordered it from the dealer....$446. They said they'd hook me up with install.

Wonder if any drilling is required?
No drilling at all. Install took 15 minutes. They pop off the trunk liner, unscrew the stock spoiler, screw the new one in and put the trunk liner back in place. Really easy install.

Just called the local dealer and it's $455 for a paint matched spoiler and that didn't include installation.
Talk to your service manager. I got to know mine over the past few months and they were nice enough to not charge me for install after ordering the part from them.

Talk to me about your blackout grille.
Wrapped it in satin black. Got it done at StickerCity in Sherman Oaks CA. Was thinking of painting it, but to my surprise found out that most grills, trim etc that is blacked out is actually wrapped. Car looks much more aggressive with the grille blacked out. If I ever want to go back to stock, all it takes is a simple peeling off of the wrap.

What did they charge you to do the grill?

Came out to $296 to wrap the grill and orange side markers. Took about 2 hours to do.
Nice thanks! I did my side markers within a week of having the car but thinking of doing the grill now just looking to see what I should pay looks like $250 or less would be a good deal. Thanks!
