Well, i was so happy that I got my UPS box today. I opened it up to pull out my shiny new carbon fiber spoiler and was completely dissapointed. On the left side facing out there is a nice small (but deep) scratch in it. Underneath where the bolts are, on 1 bolt there is alot of rust and rust underneath the washer on the actual CF. On the right side( facing out) there is a small hole all the way through the CF. If u took an ink pen and just moved it around enough to make a mark, that would be the size of the hole. This may seem like minor things, but the total price of this spoiler shipped came out to almost $450 bucks. For that price I expect it to be perfect (like my c/f hood). Anyone else have the CF type-r spoiler? I will hopefully get some pics up soon.

just take the side peices, repair them and paint em to match your car, i think it looks better with just the CF deck part anyways

Thats cool, but I shouldn't have to repair anything. Anyways, how would I go about reparing a hole in the CF? I don't really want the sides painted because 1. I have a NBP so it wont even be really noticeable 2. It will look 2 much like an EVO especially with my vented hood. I don't want people 2 think of my car as a wannabe EVO8.

Well, that sucks i agree for 450 you shouldnt have to repair anything. But to repair CF is same as anything else bondo and sand. but the only thing is it will be visible so you'll have to paint it or it'll look like ass.

Everything is very minor, I guess I was over reacting a little. The thing Im worried most about is the rust on the bolts. Is that going to be a problem down the road? The knick and small hole you cant even really see unless you are really looking for it.

Yeah it's from GTP. Im gonna take pics this weekend and send it back. I had it out in the sunlight and there's like little white spots and shit on it that don't come off. I know this is gonna be a pain in the ass to sendback. My friend also noticed that the sanding around the edges was terrible. Anyone know of anyone else that makes these? I wish the quality of it was as good as my VIS hood.
