How does the lip spoiler look to you?

The black rear lip spoiler works well on the Majestic Black and Liquid Carbon Integras, but not so well (IMO) with the other color options. Without other black accents on the back of the car, it looks slapped on and not well-integrated into the car's design (if the color matched, it would be splendid).

The carbon fiber on the silvers and blacks looks pretty good though.

What say you?

Never a fan of exterior carbon fiber unless you have a bunch of it or the car is carbon like a McLaren. Expensive stuff stuck on to look like something it’s not.

A few interior touches of very good quality carbon weave can be very sporty though.

So, now that some of us have seen the manufacturing photos and videos, I'm wondering if someone here might be able to shed some light on this... does anyone know how the rear spoiler is attached to the trunk/hatch? And do we think the carbon-fiber dealer-option spoiler would replace the stock spoiler, or would it be more of a cap that goes over the existing spoiler?

Essentially, I'm trying to get an idea on whether the rear spoiler can be removed without leaving holes or otherwise ruining the hatch, or if the only way to get an Integra without a spoiler is by going with the base spec.

EDIT: Whelp, I guess I could have just googled this. Assuming this is attached like most lip spoilers, sounds like this can be removed with a heat gun, some rubbing alcohol, and some patience.

There would have to be holes of some sort. How else to remove it without taking paint too? Also, it’s hard to align one just right. I’ve drilled holes in a Lotus to position the wing, made even this Dentist take a good breath first. Having holes might aid assembly.

This is not a “lip spoiler”, that would be on the front of a car. This would generally be referred to as a “wing” or even “winglet”

EDIT: on further reflection, even though it might not be the most common usage it’s fine to describe the ”rear decklid aerodynamic device” with words “lip” or “spoiler”. It does spoil or change the flow of air. Apologies.

I like it. I think it looks great on the white. I told my dealer I wanted one before I realized it was included with my package. I'm also considering the blacked-out Acura and A-spec logos. Generally, I don't care for black wheels, but I think it looks good on the white car, and adding some additional trim may just make it pop.
Holding off on the CF mirror caps and rear diffuser for now.
