Hey anyone have any recommendations for a new rear spoiler?

I love the look of mine but it's starting to crack. I'm not much of a carbon fiber fan or some huge weird looking spoilers. Just looking for something that works nice with my black on green s3.
Honestly if I could even find the same one I'd be happy but I can't seem to fine a nice one for my 2016 in anything but carbon fiber.

I agree with big spoilers mine is more of just a black accent very small I don't like those big shopping cart handles people put on cars :)

if mine was going bad i prob will go without one. it just looks simpler and easier to wash back there.
back in the day when I had my civic, I really wanted a spoiler honda offered as an add-on. never had the money so it never happened. then I got my Subie sti. and if you remember on the 2004 model, they didn't call it a spoiler, but a wing. and man was it one. after that I didn't care for even a little one. it just wasn't something I cared for anymore.

The previous owner swapped mine out so I'm sure it would be an ordeal to get a factory original on a car that only had 5 made. I guess i could try to match the paint though there isn't even a paint code in the trunk. I do like the black though

i have had luck with just taking my car to a specialist and he was able to color match my other old civic i had before. its was such an old car but he was able to match it very well. it just looked a little newer cause of how old the car was and it was weathered as well.

another idea is if you want, you can carbon fiber the one you have. it will cover up any issues and strengthen it as well. that method can also be used on any other types you find online.

i think that would be a fun project

Spoiler arrived it's very nice looking I'll have to work on the install this week. I have to say I'm a little disappointed that at almost $500 the ECS tuning spoiler is made in China.
On a funny note the old spoiler that the previous owner installed is also a M & L spoiler so the same brand as the new one.

No issues with the install the fitment is nice. Hopefully I prepped the surface correctly and it doesn't go flying off down the road :)
Feels very secure though I yanked up on it a bunch and it doesn't feel like it's going anywhere.
