Absolutely. Remin computerized system uses your vehicle's paint code to ensure that your new spoiler is painted with the exact OEM color. A precise match is guaranteed!
Each spoiler gets painted with three coats plus an additional two layers of clearcoat for added protection as well as a stellar factory finish.
For some types of spoilers, installation can be tricky if it's your first time. But just about all spoilers we offer are a "do it yourself" installation using the included directions and mounting components. Be sure to set aside an appropriate amount of time before you begin. If you don't feel totally confident in your ability to install your spoiler, you can either contact our tech support staff or have it installed at a body shop.
A Lighted Spoiler means that the spoiler is equipped with a third brake light.
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.
Spoilers at CARiD.com are comprised of either fiberglass or blow-molded ABS plastic. Using these materials allows each spoiler we offer to be lightweight as well as extremely durable. All of our spoilers also come with a Lifetime Warranty against splitting, warping, and cracking.
The differences between fibergass, ABS plastic and polyurethane spoilers are not that drastic to be concerned about while making your choice. Each material slightly differs, yet all of them are trustworthy and were tested through years of use in automotive industry.
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.
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!
Initially designed as a racing car accessory, a spoiler can now be seen on a variety of passenger vehicles regardless of their performance capacity. So what’s actually a car spoiler? Is it any kind of utility or just a design cue? Let’s find it out.
Basically, a spoiler helps your vehicle better cut through the wind when you’re driving at high speeds. Varying in shape and mounting position, car spoilers have two main purposes. The first one is to reduce wind resistance by disrupting unfavorable aerodynamics. Moving at a high speed, your car faces air resistance and generates drag. While drag is not a problem at normal driving speeds, it can seriously affect the handling of the vehicle when you step on the gas. As a result, an enjoyable ride may turn into a nightmare. A spoiler can save the situation. Placed at the rear of a vehicle, it diffuses aerodynamics in such a way that the amount of drag generated by a flat surface at the vehicle’s back considerably abates. As a result, the speed increases while the vehicle gets more stable. Spoilers used to decrease drag are usually mounted closer to the body of the car. The slightly off-horizontal angle of a rear spoiler prevents some of the air from following the rear contour of the vehicle and creating a suction effect.
The second effect car spoilers can create is traction increase. There are several factors that determine the amount of traction a vehicle has: its weight, the kind of its tires and the type of surface. For most cars, especially when it comes to sports vehicles, less weight is better. The lighter a car is, the faster it will accelerate, but decreasing a car’s weight also results in reduced traction. Unless you want to learn how to fly your own car, you will need the spoiler to keep your ride literally down to earth. Spoilers that help press the back of the vehicle to the ground are known as wings. Thus, rear wing-shaped spoiler uses aerodynamics to generate downward force on the car’s body to increase friction and traction. Wings do not just disrupt existing aerodynamics, but they also create downforce as air passes around them. Unlike standard spoilers, wing-shaped extensions are mounted high up on a vehicle.
Traction can also be improved with the use of front spoilers, also known as air dams. In addition to directing aerodynamics, they also decrease the amount of air circulating underneath the vehicle thereby reducing aerodynamic lift.
Summing it all up, the intended function of spoilers is to increase the driving efficiency and provide stability of a vehicle in a high-speed motion. However, today many modern vehicles can be seen with this accessory due to the sporty look and feel it delivers. Decorative spoilers have little (sometimes even negative) aerodynamic efficiency, so if want your car to not just look sporty, but be so, think about replacing decorative factory spoilers with full-fledged devices. Anyway, remember that whether your gauge pointer often exceeds 100 mph or you simply love sporty vehicle design, you can find the right spoiler on carid.com.
