Hello everyone 

No doubt this will be a rarely updated thread by myself, however today I have got my first mod fitted to the BRZ.

Trying to decide on the first mod for the BRZ was a tough one (ignoring the radio), In the end I decide to replace the standard wing on the BRZ. Due to the fact I despise the standard one, as the looks don't match the lines of the car. Ultimately I would have chosen the aero kit wing but as they are only available on new cars in the EU it would be near impossible to get one. So I settled for the next best thing, a TRD rear spoiler.

So this evening after waiting over a month for the new wing to be delivered, I collected my car from the painters Big smile

I'm a very happy bunny right now. Pictures below.

Looks good Will, anybody know now it compares to the standard spoiler/wing, was reading a post the other day that said the 86 wing helped with drag.

looking good there!, is there a rubber seal between the spoiler and the boot lid and if so what colour is it?
the reason why i'm asking is because I've only seen the gray coloured seals and yours look black.
Cheers Mark

You get both a black and grey seal in the box.

Looks fantastic dude!
This will be on my future mods list along with the rear diffuser - should really finish off the back end of the car :)

Hmmm, it's a smashing looking car mate, but I remain unconvinced by the TRD spoiler, - it's draggy and seems odd being narrower than the bootlid... That looks wrong somehow, - why isn't it flush with the boot sides? Confused

All that said though, it does seem to suit the BRZ better than the GT86 somehow...

And how come this spoiler doesn't come on the TRD version of the car, - it makes no sense to me. Ouch 

Detailing guru...- Keep it clean, folks! Now a powerful Sith Lord after lusting for power & being seduced by the Dark Side (PORSCHE! ). Still a GT86 fan though...

Hi Will, where did you get it from and how much please? I'm getting one from RRG but will have to ask Rich about the seals as he seems to think it might have only come with grey.
