What is a "Lighted Spoiler?"
A Lighted Spoiler means that the spoiler is equipped with a third brake light.
Are Lighted Spoilers mandatory by law?
Lighted spoilers are only required if your 3rd brake light is placed in the lower part of your rear window and would be obstructed. If your 3rd brake light is located in the top of your rear window, a lighted spoiler is not necessary.

What is the difference between a Factory Spoiler and a Custom Spoiler?
A factory spoiler is the look and shape of how it would be if you purchased it directly from the dealership. A custom spoiler is crafted to fit your vehicle's dimensions but showcase a more expressive shape or look.
Will a spoiler add an aerodynamic advantage when I'm driving?
For most street-legal automobiles, a spoiler doesn't add an aerodynamic benefit. These factors include the rate of speed the car is going as well as the size and shape of your vehicle. You would have to be driving at a much higher rate of speed than the legal limit (much higher) in order for a spoiler or wing to help stabilize your rear axle while traveling. However, a spoiler can add a slight amount of downforce on the right vehicle. But more often than not, a spoiler is meant to deliver a racing attitude, just not the racing!
