comes prepped with 3m tape. I added a few extra stips to make sure. Even if you wanted to drill the spoiler is hollow,no mounts underneath. But once on that **** ain't coming off. I tried to pull it off to make a very slight adjustment, wasn't happening. Still there and sticking strong. Just follow the proper instructions (i.e clean first THEN use the isoprohyl 2nd)

How is the fitment? Off a little? Funky? Or good enough to not see the flaws?

Any hd close up shots?

Details details details!!!

there is only one problem with the fit. Pretty sure it was a mistake form me during mounting, but the edges of the spoiler do not touch the car, and from a certain angle it's quite obvious. I think it's just cause I mounted it improperly and wasn't able to make the adjustment before the tape stuck. Will have to grab a better picture later to show it:

How is it a FAKE spoiler...its made by a different brand....Parts from japan are ridiculously priced and TBH its not worth over 600 for a spoiler....they are priced to rip people off especially cosmetic parts...just wait a couple months and other companies such as those that make parts in the USA will come out with their own version which im sure the craftsmanship will be just as good.....

TRD to me equal just an overpriced item......

cotton is cotton and so are items such as spoilers...made by a human, made with same materials its just the name.......IMO

The term fake, in regards to this spoiler just means it's a replica.

Replica is fake.(a company tries to copy the authentic part) Usually fitment in replica parts are not 100% accurate. Some come close.

It's also like saying, buy your girlfriend/wife a fake Hermes bag, or a genuine one, will anyone notice?(or the lesser Louis Vuitton which will be even more obvious)

You paid a pretty penny for your car, why cheap out on parts? At least don't cheap out on parts that are exposed, detail in quality.

Gotta pay to play.

Yea I get the term and understand but no spoiler for a trunk is worth 680 dollars ....unless it's got 14k gold flakes in it ......that's just my opinion but nonetheless you'll have people that still buy it ....why I don't know .....but I hear ya obv I paid to play lol

Only because you pointed it out, now I started "looking". Otherwise, at least on Obsidian with dark shadows and the like, it doesn't show as a defect. Looks fine to me from this pic.

Any close up pictures of the spoiler. Is there a rubber gasket surrounding the spioler like the real factory TRD spoiler? Carid has a picture of a Factry trd spoiler with rubber gasket where the spoiler meets the trunk.

I ordered the same spoiler from Carid. Fitment was spot on. It does not come with the rubber gasket found on the real TRD one.

If I may ask, where did you get this spoiler? I like this one over the other style spoilers I've seen, less bulky looking. I saw one similar on ebay from a seller in Texas.
