      Best source for rear spoilers?

      I was wondering if any of you would share your experiences with adding a rear spoiler to your S60 and where you made the purchase and/or installation. Dealer? Authentic Volvo part? etc.

      I saw this on eBay and would worry about quality of a $120 painted part? http://goo.gl/GgL1Vc

      Thanks.

      Hello,

      I cannot speak much to the ebay parts but in past experiences the quality can be pretty bad. We have OEM and aftermarket choices at vivaperformance.com and would be happy to discuss some of them with you.

      I have that one on my Volvo, had it for about 8 months now.. No problems looks great, been through 100 + washes and it has not moved..

      I posted a pic around here somewhere of it when someone asked.. Looks 100% stock.. Go for it.

      You looking for cheap or good quality? Sometimes they can be the same...most times not so much.

      Obviously I'd prefer both, but I'm definitely looking for the look in the one I posted in my original post. It looks extremely close to the Volvo accessory version, I'm not really into the carbon fiber look spoilers.

      Have you checked Viva Performance? They have quite a few if you just want a spoiler.

      How about this. They have a carbon fiber one also but since your not into CF and it cost more...

      Relatively inexpensive, doesn't even cost much more for what I would think is good quality.

      I found that one at IPD for $40 unpainted (it was the last one they had).

      As I said, I have the one from EBay in the black color - it looks 100% stock, paint is good and its been through Hail, Snow, Rain, Washes galore (Auto machines) and its not even moved..

      Installed in 5 mins using tape to line it up.. Get the one I said if you want cheap but reliable..

      So it's easy to install by yourself, or did you have a helper?

      You can install it solo in 5 minutes - id recommend using blue tape to help you line it up. Evenly.. But I did it myself..

      Great - Thank you for the info. Does it come with tape, or did you use a specific kind? 3M Body tape?

      Appears to be a beautiful spoiler. Would you mind posting more pictures taken from the side and rear from a distance away so we can see how well it goes with the overall lines and flow of the car? Also is the same spoiler available not in CF, that can be painted to match car?

      Both the KPAX and the one from Eurosport Tuning actually. The close up pictures don't really show how well the integrate with the lines of the car. Thnks

      More pics here. Spoiler comes as you see in carbon fiber, if you wish you can get it painted to match the car.

      Nothing demonstrates the law of diminishing returns more than racing and cars. Or maybe audio. Or maybe car audio...

      Thought it was 2200$, oh that's right, they dropped the price. I also got another 25% off due to CTD7 with free shipping; 1400$ total. I couldn't resist and wanted something different, plus the rest of my car is KPAX. I thought I'd keep it that way.

      I got mine from Tasca Volvo Parts online, pre-painted. It's been perfect. I've had issues with the cheap eBay spoilers chipping and peeling very early in their life so I'd stay away from eBay stuff.

      Mine so far has zero chipping and zero paint issues.. Besides.. They 120$ .. Honestly you can just replace them after a few years at that price no problemo.
