Default Spoiler Suggestions

Hey, I have a 2006 Brickyard Red Coupe 350z, I recently got my wheels powder-coated white. I was looking to get a spoiler, and I've been looking around in threads for ideas, but nothing really clicked yet. I like both the idea of a lip spoiler, or one that's elevated off the back too, I think both have potential to look nice. If I do get a lip one I want one that's fairly noticeable, I noticed some of them were very small. So yeah, if anyone one has opinions or ideas on what would like nice I'm open to ideas. Also, would it look nice to have the spoiler be white to match the wheels or would that be overkill? Just seeing what people think looks nice! Thank you for any opinions

Austin - don't let me rain on your parade … but the best spoilers on this car are the OEM variants...when people look at the spoiler they should automatically think that Nissan put the spoiler on the car from the factory.

A truly effective spoiler on these cars need to be raised 18" to 24" above the trunk/hatch deck lid and are only going to be effective at speeds higher than 120mph. So whatever you do, the spoiler will be for looks and as a wise man once said 'less is more'.

With that being said (let me talk out of the other side of my mouth) I do like the stillen / superman spoilers...

match the color of the spoiler to the color of the car.

Thanks for the response! I definitely don't want to rice the car out or anything, so that makes sense. Is there a place you'd recommend purchasing from? Or a link you can give me with all of the variants, that I could look at at least? I purchased a spoiler for an RX-8 that I used to have, and both times they sent one there was large chips in it and it was in very poor condition.

I would use a source like Z1 motorsports, Concept Z Performance, or Stillen or the manufactures direct website -

SRZ Performance is a newer company and they're vendors on here. You can always hit them up too.

Here are some old pics of when I had the stillen spoiler (one of my favorites). I had slight fitment issues with the top mating to the hatch; but that's bc I had a crappy body shop paint it and put it on, they didn't fit it correctly or sand it. I'm selling this spoiler btw.

Yeah, I saw some photos of those! I like those a lot, would they still look good on a car that isn't lowered? Also just curious on how much you're selling it for?

I personally think these are badass:

But the customer service feedback has been more than questionable over the years. Caveat emptor...

Check out spoiler express.com They have several different spoilers and will match your paint color for such a reasonable price don't know how they stay in business.

Still miss the Monterey Blue (or close) color, Mistuh Wrapper, er, Sparco. This color is nice but that lighter blue, wow. For a while, wanted to get another Z34.... just for the color in Monterey Blue.

You should get one of each gen Z since you pretty much have most of it all, though I haven't been keeping up with your collection. The color now is Mariana Blue, supposed to be similar to that of Aston Martin's Mariana Blue but in matte. I loved the Intense Blue I had prior to this, though it was starting to show signs of age.

I also agree that a spoiler is really for looks and not much down force. That being said, I love my Duck Tail Spoiler.

Member here on the forum. Came previously uninstalled, Got it painted and mounted.

Sad thing is there's no way to mount it but using 3m tape. There's not studs you can put a nut on..

250 for spoiler / 250 for paint and install

Gotcha, thanks. Really torn between getting a stillen spoiler or just a OEM lip spoiler..
