so anyone recommend putting a roof spoiler on the back windshield and where to get one?

Hereís the paint matched roof spoiler I bought on ebay, co. is Shadow.Speed. Itís pretty good quality, no complaints. It comes with adhesive promoter and 2-sided tape. A straightforward DIY install. I added a little more of my own 2-sided tape just to be sure. https://www.ebay.com/itm/282694855370?ul_noapp=true

HomeIn2, if you don't want to pony up for the OEM diffuser, you can get them off ebay. I did it but to be honest, it took a combination of two setups to get it correct. I ordered a full CF lower bumper and diffuser set - lower bumper portion did not fit well but I was able to keep the setup due to an ebay decision in my favor when the seller wouldn't take it back. Then I ordered a full setup in gloss black and used the gloss black lower bumper insert and the CF diffuser from the first set. looks great.
I think technically the lower bumper portion, if OEM, is supposed to be matte black but the gloss doesn't bother me since my car is sapphire black anyway

I can't seem to decide on a diffuser that I truly like. I am inclined to just get my stock piece painted gloss black and call it a day.

Anyone tried new grills with LED light up in it? Curious if it worth $1000 to replace my black grills

I have to say for $1000, it doesn't float my boat at all. All we're talking about is a basic LED light strip connected to a basic controller and the car electrics. All in all it's a mega con.

I used to think my Hue lights were expensive, but against this, they're a total bargain!
