Civic 2018 , Correct Scale Type R spoiler

Recommended Posts

One of my friends wants to buy an after market FK8 (Civic Type R) spoiler for his FK7. But most Sri Lankan sellers have a different version of this spoiler which has a wrong scale. What they have is not the correct scale. There's no OEM version yet, so have to find the best replica.
Sri Lankan sellers have a spoiler shown in the below picture, which is neither the correct scale nor correct shape as in real FK8. Notice how it connects to the wing. Fixing something like this would definitely mess up aero dynamics of the car than fixing something at least closely matches the original one.

Correct spoiler looks like this, Notice it's not connected to the bent part of the wing. It just fits in between wing and bent area

At the moment there are replicas of correct scale on the internet. We contacted few major spare part sellers who brings down type r spoilers and bodykits, but all of them have the wrong scale version. Does anyone know someone who imports this correct full scale FK8 spoiler?

I'm too keen on getting down the same. Also visited few sellers who deal with these and apparently no chance of buying the exact OEM looking one. Finally decided to put an online order but nothing has finalized yet due to the several reasons. Mainly the drilling of rear door and there is no special hardening bracket inside the door liners which supposed to come along with the OEM spoiler i guess. Just putting a nut and bolt may cause serious damage to the door as it may dip the surface due to the weight of the spoiler when closing for quite a long time. Putting a replica could be even more dangerous as it is not a carbon fiber wing.
