Default ZR1 Style Spoiler - White FRC

Looking for fitment details and opinions. In the end it is my car, but as this is a large community; drawing on other's experiences is always welcomed.

Here is my car:

Autocrossing, 2017


As it sits in the garage now

Swapping out the side markers and ditching the tow hook and jake on the back here shortly.

Deciding between the two ZR1 style spoilers:

https://www.rpidesigns.com/shop/item.aspx?itemid=2087

or

https://www.c7carbon.com/zr1-style-r...r-for-c5-p-425

Anyone have either of these?

I would do carbon fiber if I went C7. If I went RPI I would go with White to match.

Eventually I'll flare the rear fenders and add skirts. I think with the black lower valence either work, leaning towards carbon but looking for experience and input.

The standard & race spoilers from C7 Carbon are also nice.

I like black or carbon fiber on a white frc. I'm not crazy about the fitment of those ZR1 spoilers on a C5, though. They're just not wide enough. IMHO.

C7 Carbon looks pretty good and it seems to cover more of the rear end, making it actually more functional. I've been considering this one myself for my black 03 Z.

If you are going to do it, do it and be functional:

I prefer the look of the FRC body style without , however the SLP spoiler or a modified Caravaggio spoiler where it doesn't extend onto the rear fenders would be my choice.

Agreed 1000%. The SLP is the only add-on rear spoiler I like on C5s. It looks like a continuation of the rear deck, instead of something that was just laid on there.

The SLP spoiler shown above fits the C5 best IMO. The C6 spoilers don't really fit the look on a C5, IMO.

Exactly what what I was thinking. Doesn't have that just glued down look.

That SLP style is killer, the others just dont flow. First I have ever seen a spoiler on a C5 I actually liked.

I think the SLP style like the white Z shown above probably looks the most factory. I like the ZR1 style and that spoiler king ebay thing too, but not sure I like 'em enough to break up the absolutely gorgeous rear lines of the c5. I mean that factory line is flawless IMHO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ....which is why the Carvaggio (didn't know the name 'til now) is my least favorite. It's obviously VERY popular, and it does look good......but to me it just breaks up that factory line too much.

if you decide on a c7 carbon spoiler I have a brand new extended fiberglass one that I was going to have molded into my bumper but I'm not sure if I will ever get around to it, https://www.c7carbon.com/c5-extended...6e2924a4d59cf7
