Default Wrong color spoiler factory mistake

I received my corvette 10-14 and I noticed that the spoiler ,I ordered the carbon fiber mirrors and spoiler as listed on my order sheet , is same red color as the car . Many people said looks better not being black in color. I have told to be sure to get documentation that this makes it unique . This is the best Corvette I have ever had, I have had three new Corvettes. My question, should I have them change to the black color ?

Hmmm. Right! And wrong for GM obviously. What will GM or dealer do? Maybe at a minimum, GM reimburses you back $100 for an incorrect build.... or at least 50 bucks back for a halfazz job!

You should be happy with what you buy.

IMO, l like the car better this way and I'm ordering it this way. But, my opinion means nothing.

Only your opinion matters.

Maybe they'll just send you the carbon flash pieces for dealer installation? If you decide you don't want them I'm sure you could find a buyer on here....Like me who now wishes I would have ordered them!

If you like it, leave it. If not, change it out.

I would have is black to match the mirrors but that's just my opinion.

Unless you plan on keeping the car 50 years, it won't matter...in fact, even if you do, it is highly unlikely this factory mix-up will make your car more valuable. I think those days are gone...

My opinion is to get your black spoiler. Had the car arrived with body color mirrors and a black spoiler, I would have left it along and asked for a partial refund. I like the black spoiler but never liked miss-matched color mirrors. Just my opinion.

Spoiler should always match to blend in.(if that's what you like?)Off set colors make that particular part POP.Calipers,mirrors,chrome rims.Your baby,your call.

I like it this way. Now if one mirror was red and one was black, then I would have an issue. lol Plus, now you have bragging rights as yours is the only one made by the factory with this unique "option package"

I like it the way it is, your Vette will be unique!
Still, your call, and if you decide to leave it as is, get a refund.
I am amazed that someone at BG did not catch this mismatch!

I like the car as is, most likely to be the only one around like that, your own personalized Corvette!

I am in agreement with many others. I like it this way. Black looks aftermarket.

I wonder if it can be ordered this way? I would do so if available.

I like the black better - I would get the spoiler changed to match the mirrors
The black on the spoiler adds symmetry to the black lower valence/splitter
I like it - I have the CR with the carbon flash spoiler/mirrors and get a lot of
compliments on the carbon flash choice. It definitely does not look aftermarket
with the black trim in other areas of the car. Just my opinion

Can you post a pic of you CR with the spoiler?

The red spolier looks better IMO. I do like the top and mirrors.

Default homogenous works for me

The spoiler not matching the build sheet is just a UAW screw up deal. Nothing more. Fifty years from now that will still be the deal. Any dealer will make the swap as a warranty item. I'd change it so everything matches. IMHO

It looks odd to me. The black mirrors really stand out. I'd either get the black spoiler or red mirrors.
