my car is currently spoiler-less, and i think she looks a little bald without a spoiler!

as such, I was thinking of getting the OEM spoiler (the one with the brake light in the middle) i could have my friend's bodyshop install it for me, but i was wondering if anyone had any problems installing this particular spoiler w/ the brake light? i mean, i already have a brake light on the inside of my back windshield; do i have to get rid of that or can I have both brake lights operating at the same time?

Wing Rider Lexus IS300 Painted Spoiler Factory Style with Light - 2000 - 2004 Lexus


should i get it from here? or is it too expensive? it DOES come prepainted...

thanks!!

I guess I'll be nice to help you since I was in the same situation as you're before, because I know it sucks that 01 doesn't come with a spoiler. :pissed:
Price is about right.. you can try to get one on ebay if they're any cheaper cause I believe the quality should be the same.
There won't be any problem on the 3rd (that's the name for it) brake light... I am still running with it although the bulb is out currently. You can do this yourself with a friend if you want to. Basically, you need to drill a hole on your OEM trunk and wire the the LED on one of your brake light. I don't know if that's the best or safe way to do it but that's what I did..

410IS300, i am interested...but maryland is kinda far away...how much would shipping be? and how much are you willing to let it go for?

i am currently looking on ebay and some other random spoiler websites through google

i just left a message with the lexus dealership in my area and am in the process of getting a price quote...if it comes painted and is cheap, then i'll probably just get it from the dealership (but more likely than not, the price will be HIGH)

we shall see...

The 01 can come with a spoiler i have a 2001 n its got the spoiler with brake light. I like the spoiler a lot n all but the LEDs are out n im pretty much stuck unless i go to the dealer or replace the spoiler entirely. n the dealer is talkin like $299 to get a new led strip, just the strip as they told me. so thats just my experience with it also if ne ones got ne tips for me on how n where to replace just the strip PM me.

so i spoke with my local lexus dealer today...and for a brand new factory pre-painted spoiler, its like $465 (he said he gave me 10% off) before tax! and this price doesn't include installation either!!

omg that is way too expensive!

how's the quailty of the ebay ones tho? is fitment ok? and does it break and crack over time? i am considering getting one from ebay...but I'd much rather buy one off of a member here so I know for sure the material is quality and fitment is perfect...

well...its not an OEM...thats for sure... but it fit great and is so far in perfect condition,but I've only had it for a week or so.

for the money spent, I'd say go for it;)
