I'm interested in getting a spoiler for my 2010 forte koup sx

just a few questions

1. what are my options?

2. do they come painted to match my colour (black)

3. how hard of an install is it and/or is it cost effective to just get the dealership to install it?

Honestly man, I really like the look of the GT spoiler, especially on a black koup. I paid roughly 230 for the spoiler(eeeek) and then 165 for paint and I installed it myself. I also had the bright lip spoiler but you can barely see its there. I bought mine from ebay but if you decide to get it I would email before buying to make sure they have it in stock.

The Spec-GT wingis nice, it is body color matching and the cross bar is black, but i'm sure you could have it any color you want!, a factory wing spoiler is much the same only toned down a bit and isn't so drastic, or you could go with the lip spoiler from the SX-R kit that has a break light in it, i think this one looks nice, just adds to the look well, and finally, probably the smallest change would be the BRIGHT lip spoiler, just a small add just enough to say that there is a change. The dealership spoilers would cost more, when it comes to painted if you are getting one online make sure that the color code is the same as the one inside your door, or you could it done in a shop when it arrives and do whatever you want with it. When it comes to installing I got mine done at the dealership because if they frig something up I could put the wrap on them as well I expected that they would do a better job, but doing so costs extra, exspecially the size and if there is any wiring involved. Hope this helps!

You should meet up with us UKE Toronto peeps. Quite few spoilers in the group.. and ALL have been installed by us ourselves as a team.

send me a PM to chat.

Deleting my posts? Thats mature... The second one was full of usefull information...
You mad bro?

He didn't delete it, admins did, if you're gonna be useful, then be useful on the first post.

and as for OP's question. I've been digging the SI-style spoiler for a while, option wise you only have a couple of options:

Sequence GT spoiler - Aiden has it

Bright Lip spoiler- Aiden had it.

Si-Spoiler - Fas93 has it.


ebay lip spoiler- cheap version of the bright spoiler


Koup SX-R spoiler - too expensive (around $600)

Factory spoiler

Honestly, not much more than a lip spoiler looks good on these cars. There is just something off about them. I had the Bright lip spoiler, but I would've preferred it to be a bit more noticeable, but along the same lives, which is why I got the R kit spoiler. I know it's a bit pricey, but it looks really nice. You have the right idea though, check some out at the meet to get an idea of what you want. Either way, good luck.

I personally have the SI spoiler but love the GT spoiler as well. I think the car looks great with any spoiler (or none at all for that matter). It just all depends if you want a cleaner or more pronounced spoiler. I actually have a question about the GT spoiler...can it be installed with the same holes as the SI spoiler?

i say the easiest way to find out is to take a picture of your holes from inside the trunk, and have Aiden or (K)(I)(A) take a picture of theirs. and compare
