O.K. Back in 2001 when I bought the Impala, I disliked the rear spoiler, but now that my cousin gave me his Impala with spoiler, I realized that I made a mistake ordering my car without spoiler. I've found what seems to be a good deal on a new painted aftermarket spoiler, but I'm concerned about the quality of the spoiler or the paint job (opinions needed), I've heard some bad things about them, like not fitting properly, or that the factory spoiler sits higher, before I decide which spoiler to buy (OEM or aftermarket) I want your opinion, or pics of the aftermarket spoiler installed if someone have one.

Thanks

I don't have a clue on aftermarket spoilers...but why not just get an OEM spoiler from the yard or a craiglsist part out?

Just find on in a scrapyard on an Impala with a front or side collision.

The last (and only) experience I had with a factory GM spoiler was the one on my '89 Buick LeSabre T Type...After a few years it started rotting away and because of the replacement cost, I removed it, filled the holes and painted the trunk lid...I'm hoping the one on my Impala gives longer service...

I have no experience with aftermarket spoilers... Smile ...Ben

I've found one on a junkyard, but they want 130 bucks for the used spoiler, but I'm not gonna buy that, that's the price of a new OEM spoiler on gmpartsdirect.com, the price of the aftermarket I saw on ebay was $70 bucks shipped and painted.

I don't have any experience with aftermarket ones aside from seeing them on the Honda's and stuff, i haven't had any problems with mine but i would definitely go with the oem.

This must not be a pick-n-pull (generically speaking)...a spoiler is only $25.47. Find a yard where you have to pull the parts yourself and I can guarantee it'll be far cheaper. And like I said before, try craigslist.

I've always found genuine GM parts fit. Aftermarket parts, not so much.
