The lip spoiler was advertised to "enhance stability at high speeds". The OEM spoiler was not. It was an easy choiceThorn2004 said:One question though, why did you decide to go with the lip spoiler rather than the OEM full spoiler? In my opinion the standard spoiler looks sportier and better on most cars than the lip spoiler? :donno:
Indeed. I prefer the subtle look of the lip spoiler myself. OEM doesn't look bad, it's just not my cup o' tea, particularly in black. On red, maybe SSM, etc it looks very good.Each to their own... :shy:
That's a joke, right? :donno:jcg878 said:The lip spoiler was advertised to "enhance stability at high speeds". The OEM spoiler was not. It was an easy choice .
Indeed it was. I don't think it does anything other than make me look back at the carlarchmont said:That's a joke, right? :donno:
Even if it wasn't, I think it really is. But who cares, if you think it enhances stability, then it probably does.
Indeed again! I've seen some impressive examples, as I imagine we all have.Larchmont, who thinks pharmacy dudes must be well familiar with the placebo effect.
I took it to CollisionMax of Westmont (NJ), where it was promptly transferred to CollisionMax of Pennsauken (NJ), which handles the 'big ones'. My insurance company guarantees their work (they do as well) and I'd heard good things about the Westmont one, so I chose them. The ride is absolutely as I remember BUT there is a new whistling sound that is annoying. The trunk doesn't leak, mechanically it feels the same, the paint looks great, and overall I'm pleased (but cautious).Whatchamacallit said:Great to see that you have your car back, JCG.
It looks fantastic! If you don't mind, where did you go to get it fixed? Good body shops are hard to find.
How's the ride so far?
Now that's what I'd call a pretty cool heads up. :nod:hip said:.....Best advice I can offer is ask them to complete the repairs away from the paint booth. The worst part of returning to the body shop is having detailed your car and bringing it home only to find overspray on everything! :mecry:
yeah, that sucks. The covers are prone to rock-induced breakage as well, and they aren't cheap to fix. My solution was to have the car hit in a major accident so the autobody shop didn't notice it was already broken :gapteeth:TSX 'R' US said:Only when the headlights are on
