I really don't want to spend $300 for original + $120-150 for installation
Install it yourself. If you have a drill, some bits, tape measure, masking tape, a socket and ratchet, maybe a wrench, and some patience and common sense, no reason you cant do it yourself, and do it perfectly. I cant remember what I paid for mine, but shop around, different dealers online, direct from mazda, search the part number in google shopping, etc...l think I got mine for closer to $250 but almost three years ago now, dont remember

And DO NOT use windshield adhesive! Your car is going to look like ass.

Why do people who have newer mazda 6's, which run aprox. $15,000 and up for a used one, refuse to pay $250 for a spoiler? Its mind boggling. If your driving a 1982 ford escort, put your shit ebay $60 crap on it all day long, but not on your $20k+ car.

Unless you can find me an oem Mazda one for 250, I was happy with my 60 buck one when I had it.

cheapest price i've found is $305 with shipping


I'm hesitant to try myself because I already messed up lol I would just pay the dealer to do it, if they mess up or peels off, they will have to do it again, but I'm not doing this any time soon, is not a priority since the replica looks passable now

Stick with my 60 dollar one when I had the stock trunk set-up.

Then make a pilot hole. And start to drill the holes. I only drill the center two holes.

Once they are but enough for the supplied screw. You prep the surface for the tape that will the majority of the spoiler on.

Place the tape and then pull like an inch off the tape, so the majority isnít adhesive showing. Place the spoiler back in, start to screw it on. And pull tape towards the final tightening.

Press down, use heat if you can. And press and hold still. Should be good then.

Thanks to you and everyone else for all the tips. I got it on today. Weíll see how long it stays! And man that primer stuff dries quick; I donít know if it was any use to me. Oh well. Anyway, I put long strips along the flat parts of the spoiler. Used masking tape to mark where I was going to place it, then applied the primer on the back of the spoiler and on the trunk. Iím sure it dried before I was able to put the 3M tape on and adhere it to the trunk, but oh well. It also didnít seem quite as flush on the edges so I squeezed in a couple of thin strips of the tape. Anyway, I think itís good. Fun lil project if nothing else.
