the stock spoiler looks the best!!

maybe if you could get a 99-00 si spoiler, but i doubt it would fit!

How about NO spoiler. I think our cars look better w/out one.

All you guys recommending the oem spoiler, did you get it at the time you bought your car or afterwards?

The honda dealers here want 500 bucks for the spoiler!

I have found a place on the net that I can get a replica oem spoiler for 199 painted w/ brake light.

Any opinions on the replica oem spoilers?

I would also say OEM. If you want a real Honda one go here: H an A Accessories The one from H and A comes already painted. There are many aftermarket OEM ones out there too. But you have to get the right paint code to match.

I kinda like my spoiler but it's originally intended for a celica. www.fxdesigns.com. Look in the catalog under 2001 civic. My car is the blue one with the long LED. I'm new here so I can't post pics of my car up yet I think ?!?

IMO I dont think the OEM Spoiler is that great. If you have that, then you are just like everybody else. Maybe I'm wrong but I thought the point was to be unique. Can someone please share with me the reason why they think it is the best?

I like the WW mini-me wing. Thats only because i like a spoiler, but not one that can be seen for miles due to its height. The OEM isnt very high i know, but the mini-me is just right for me.

I bought my spoiler from Spoiler Depot and I am extremely happy with it. The whole thing was just a little over $200 painted and delivered. The installation is super easy and it looks fantastic. It is very light so the springs don't have to be replaced, etc. Take it from me, I am no genius and I installed it by myself.

Can you tell any difference at all from the oem spoiler. I am thinking of buying mine from spoiler depot. It came with the brake light right?

I think the one from spoilerdepot is the one I'll be getting as well. Mbow, I think it does come with the brake light as the site kind of implies it with the title of the spoiler being "Factory Style Lighted Rear Wing". I'm not sure though.

Hmmm, I'm not sure what the OEM one looks like to be honest. I talked with the guys at Spoiler depot and they were real straight shooters. I think it is virtually identical to the OEM, which for 01 looks a lot better than some of the earlier years. Yes, it does come with the brake light.

I'me getting the terminator ( or is it called GTR, whateva) spoiler or the terminator II spoiler.... I think the terminator (GTR) looks good on our car cause it matches the shape of the rear brake lights.
check out sonsonzai's spoiler, he has the same one..
