This one to be exact: http://www.ebay.com/itm/330848577045...S:1123&vxp=mtr

Is this considered high kick? Thanks in advanced...
Welcome! And yes that is the high kick one. You're going to love because I'm jelly lol. Post pics when you get it!

Thanks for your quick response! The seller just contacted me "This spoiler is Performance style trunk spoiler but the middle of spoiler is small then OEM one a little bit. The width of middle is 10cm and the height is 5cm."

5cm seems kind of short for a high kick one no?

I think the seller is talking about the indent underneath the spoiler? I don't know lol. From looking at the picture it is the high kick version. You're going to have to wait until it gets to you lol. I guess you can't trust the pictures.. =/

Yea I'll wait and see, although 5cm seems super low like the other ones on ebay selling for $150. I'm hoping I didn't pay $30 more for nothing...

Since I can't start my own thread yet, do you mind me asking how you attached the spoiler? My friend who had done it said that once you stick on the 3M tape, it's very hard to take off or adjust if its put on an angle, so I want it to be perfect! lol any tips or suggestions on how to mount the spoiler is appreciated!

Lol I understand. When you go to test fit it you'll see where the spoiler sits on the trunk. That's where you put the 3M tape on and just for safety measure I put another row of tape towards the front so when I'm driving, it doesn't flips backwards And fly off. Does that make sense? Lol sorry..

Also when you think you're ready to put it on just start at one end and work towards the other. Peel the red thingy a little and as you press the spoiler onto the trunk permanently, pull if off little by little. Again sorry if my explanation is wack lol. =)

So apparantly the guy said "We are sorry to reply you late. This is our mistake. This spoiler is not 100% same size with OEM one. If you are lokking for OEM one we are sorry this one will not fit your think. We know our listing of pictures are not really correct. We will change all our listing pictures. We do apology for that. We think we need to cancel this order, because this is not what you wnat."

i think i am going to get a refund and try to find a high kicker one.... kind of dissappointed....

Here's a link where another member bought his high kick performance spoiler from. At least from the same seller. This seem to be the correct one your looking for.

Such a shame! I wonder why that is!? Surprised there isnt more. Would probably fly off the shelf if someone made one, especially like the one in your pictures but taller. Would be sexy IMO!

I take it the CSL version is the only high kick? I am not a fan of it but I do like the whole trunk version tho.

Probably because a sedan should be subtle versus a coupe.

There's a low and high kick CSL trunks. I would personally get the high kick version though. The low kick doesn't seem to look too different from stock IMO lol.
