if you have an 02 with a factory spoiler, the rod millen spoiler will not fit without leaving 7 holes in the trunk. they can be welded or filled and sanded of course, but it is much more of a pain in the ass then peeling the strip off of the double sided tape and sticking it on, like on the cars equipped without the spoiler. just an fyi for everyone.

i haven't decided if i am going to try to put it on or not, if someone wants a spoiler that is already painted to intensa blue pearl, and matches perfectly, PM me with an offer please, and i will think about it.

Yeah IS300GTE please post some pics. Id like to see some "real" pics of that new blue. Do you not like that spoiler on the back? I saw one on a black automatic I thought it looked pretty tight especially since they had enough sense to delete the third brakelight in the rear window so you dont have 2 "third" brake lights.

yeah, i'll post some pics. i busted ass to get her ready for HID in york, but they wouldn't let me in at the day of the event. it might even be the first l sportline 02, or first stick l sportline.
i haven't put the l sportline rear bumper on yet, don't know if i like it, but the rest is completed.
i'll try and get some pics up later, i took pics of the SBM taillight covers vs the rest of the car, and you really can't even tell the difference with the picture, only slightly to the eye. the new blue has pearl and a tiny bit of purple in it.

So what part of the Lsportline kit do you have on, if you didn't put the bumper? Did you only put the front bumper and side skirts? I think the bumper looks great, especially with the mesh inserts at the bottom. Did you remedy your RMM spoiler problem?

yeah, front bumper and side skirts, and it was supposed to have a millen spoiler.

i don't know if i like that drain gutter stuff in that back, we'll see if it grows on me. not sure if i want to weld the trunk holes shut or not?

HID was yesterday, you really missed out, just a glimpse of cherie roberts walking was worth the $19 bucks.

I dont know if you took my earlier post wrong, I am not saying that your pics arent real. I was just saying that i would like to see a pic of the new blue color in someones driveway, not in a studio or a proffessional photo shoot. It seems like all the photos online now look like compelety different shades of blue. Anyway, I reread my post and I can see that you may have thought I meant that you really didnt have the car. Sorry if there was a missunderstanding. Later.

Hey, welcome to the Lsportline crew! If you dont like the back, leave it off and keep it factory. It looks good either way. Because, its all about what you like, its your car so don't do what other people want or like. The trunk factory spoiler is pretty decent, closing up the holes is a big job. My friend had it done on his eclipse and in different lighting you could see something was not right.

no, i'm sorry, i guess what i said didn't come across correctly. i have pics of it in the driveway actually, just took a few. i was hoping you could verify that they told me the truth when they said that? its cool though, i wasn't feeling anything other than cool about the other post.

here are some pics of the spoiler and some comparison pics to SBM, its very hard to tell the difference between the 2 colors in the pics, its a bit easier in the day light and in person, but they are still very close.

didn't like how it looked in pics, and all of that stuff was purchased before the car was. in the pics i saw, it almost wasn't even there, but when i picked the car up, it looked a little more prevelant, i really liked how the millen spoiler looked on the 01's though, so i still might put it on?

thanks mystic, i already have tl covers on the tail lights, but i might have some pics of the car when i first got it, of the new tail lights.

if this isn't helpful enough, i will try and hit up the dealer for some uncovered pictures.

sure, i'll do that, i just have to snap one of it at the body shop, its still hanging from where it was drying, since it wouldn't fit without a lot of bull****, give me a couple of days.
