what about the prepainted ones on ebay? I got mine from TrimKing1 a few months ago for $190 shipped and it turned out great, the top of it was slightly wavy but the paint was perfect.

well i talked to a local body shop and they said if it was already painted (trimking1) then it would only be 100$ to install it...he said give or take a few depending on how hard or not hard it is to install it.

im pissed off though, trimking1 had 2 type R's on ebay and this morning when i went to go buy one.......their all sold out. i emailed him to see if he had anymore in stock...does anyone know anywhere else that sells them already painted??

$100 to install?? ouch. I hope you know they're only drilling 4 holes to do this.
how hard would it be if i got my boyfriend to do it and he doesnt know about cars? i mean he knows measurements and what not but nothing about cars

well see thats what im saying...im not about to let someone drill holes in my car w/o them knowing what im doing. that place said around 100 give or take a few depending on how long it takes. i mean i guess he needs to see the wing first and what not. who knows. maybe i could have a guy call up there and ask how much it would cost and see if its any cheaper. im SURE places do that since im a girl they think that i dont know what im talking about (which i usually dont) and try to rip me off.

it's really not hard at all, there are already four pre-drilled holes on the hatch, just make sure that the wing will fit in those, installing a Type R wing is a 15 minutes job, so at 100$ for the install, I think it's a rip off.

well if the holes line up w/ the wing im not going to pay 100$ to install it...but if i have to end up drilling holes then im going to pay. i dont want my boyfriend doing that..he knwos nothing about cars but he can screw it in if its a perfect fit

that was how much mine cost. he just emailed me today w/ the tracking number so im thinking by next week sometime it will be here....are the colors an exact match? i have read some people on here say that everything is perfect w/ the wing but sometimes the paint was a little bumpy/rough around the edges..but not to the eye..just touching it. whatever. lol.
