Lip Spoiler Installed (cheapo EBay Type) Wanna See? + Intake

So for the peeps that wanted to see what that cheap lip spoiler looks like on our cobalt up close and personal... I decided to post is since no one seems to have good pictures of it. Please see this spoiler with multiple angles and judge for yourself if you want it or not.

Some notes:
1) This spoiler is 50$ shipped from Taiwan off eBay
2) The spoiler is painted and VERY good paint quality, it will probably outlast the cobalt's actual paint by decades.
3) It is made of hard rubber, but when if comes in your mail, it is as flexible as a spaghetti noodle! (The paint flexes along with it so don't worry on cracking).
4) This is the cheapest/value solution to enhance the looks of your non-spoiler equipped cobalt and/or for people that don't want to drill holes on your trunks (like me!)

Now the pics











and yes it is a small as it looks!!!


Also recently installed (that by now everyone has ...)



The only thing I did extra though, for the people that have GMPP intakes, is that I put a strip of weather seal around the airbox, because I have noticed that GM developping the upper airbox for the intake has forgotten to take into account the thickness of the air filter that use to be there. So I filled the gap with a weather strip like this:






Initially I thought of cutting up the original filter and stick in, it would work too, but it only has 3000 miles on it.... so why waste it?

Anyways enjoy!


updated with full car pics as per requested by some.

The lip looks like a great fit. But I really can't tell if I like it or not without a full car picture.

I actually took off my bumper (to do further anti-rust) and I decided to leave it on, because I can see that it's not restrictive at all, plus it keeps it slightly quieter since I drive it everyday I want to keep some civility and let my exhaust do the talking . But I was really tempted, if the bumper wasn't as much of a ***** to remove (the most difficult I have ever removed EVER~!). I would have at least tried it.

Also, I noticed if I pulled the resonator, it is more likely that it sucks hot air from the engine bay rather than the front of the bumper.

Haha sorry to give your hopes up buddy, but you won't be able to see it!

Spoiler doesnt look bad, I agree with a full car shot. Also may be if it was full width, not just on the trunk.
