Default Need help picking a rear spoiler

Looking for suggestions on a rear spoiler, ZR1 or Extended ZR1, carbon fiber or velocity yellow. Just can't decide, nothing on the vette is carbon fiber except the center console. Wish I could see in person, no local vette show coming up in area. Thanks.

I have the ZR1 from RPI. I prefer the spoiler in body color and a splitter in black or carbon. Just my 2 cents worth.

I have the ZO6 style, not the ZR1 one on mine, but I also prefer the spoiler being the same as the body color

I bought mine from a vendor, but received the product from C7 Carbon.

I got the extended ZR1 and love it

I have the extended Zr1 in carbon fiber, but I have a lot of carbon fiber, splitter, hood, side skirts, rear diffuser,
I like the look of the extended one on a widebody, I think for a narrow body the regular ZR1 looks better.

Get the full width ZR-1 spoiler. I ordered my 13 with it and I love the look.

I think you made a great choice! I did the same, except I had mine painted black. My tail lights and front/rear side markers are also blacked out...as well as my halo.

Default C6 Spoiler

I happen to like the looks of the OEM C6 spoiler over the Z06 or ZR1.....seems less obtrusive to me....but it's all personal preference. Got mine from Gene at Cultrag (Forum vendor).

I really like the looks of the OEM. Does it come pre-painted, or unpainted, and how much does Cultrag get for one? TIA.

ZR1 body color just got mine from dealer someone ordered it and had it painted black then never picked it up. sat on shelf for 2 years so they were willing to deal. I didn't tell them my GS is black until after we negotiated the deal.
