Looks cool... I'm not a big fan of the huge spoilers....are they ever going to make one for the GT..i've seen pics that they have them in Europe

No, I wouldn't. I like the clean,
Euro-lines on my '02 Elantra. The spoiler doesn't look BAD, just unnecessary. I like the rear end as it is....elegant... just my personal
taste. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

hyundai28, check your local dealership. They should have one for GT. I saw few GT's driving around with factory spoilers. But I like it better without it. Just my opinion though

Oh by the way, ilanpro, I would save my $$$ on something else. How much is a spoiler? Around $300 installed, right? I cannot justify that price for a factory spoiler that doesn't make much difference. GLS looks good both ways: with or without a spoiler. GT looks better without it. My .02 cents

What year Imprezza spoiler is that? I don't like it. I have one on order that I'm not telling anyone about until it is installed but you scared me there for a minute when I saw Imprezza spoiler<img src=/images/forums/snitz/eek.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> Cause that what mine was made for<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

I like it. I like spoilers that are small and enhance the appearance of the car, not make it worse, like those stupidass aluminum/sheetmetal spoilers whatever you call those UGLY things. They make a car look TERRIBLE. I think thats the worse thing you can do to a car next to 6" exhaust tip. Most often, I would say go with the factory spoiler. That one looks pretty good. Look around, see whats out there. Ask your dealership about the factory spoiler.

The gt has a spoiler built in already to the hatch lid. Technically the slight upturn at the edge of the hatch can be described as an integral spoiler. A car with no spoiler or integral one could be the old Infiniti J30 remeber that car? I agree with those that say the GT looks better without a tacked on spoiler... Just looks tacky to me IMHO to each their own though

I have a factory spoiler on my 2k1 Elantra that looks like the one in your picture. Go for it if thats what you want! When I see other Elantras without it they seem kind of plain compared to mine. But then again I haven't seen any on the street with 17" chrome wheels and the mods I've put on my car. When I took my car to the dealer to get a headlamp replaced this week a lot of the service people stopped their work to check my car out!!

I like spoilers that are functional. If you don't regularly drive over 100 mph, no spoiler is functional. I was going to put a big aluminum adjustable spoiler on my T/A, before I decided to sell the car. I did, however, race the T/A at speeds over 100 mph.

Your TA is also RWD <img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0>

Spoliers on FWD cars are pointless.

Not true. Downforce helps keep the back end planted during highspeed corners.
