    Well here is part of my birthday present from myself. My other present from me was the Ver A. front spoiler but I will be putting it on on my vacation. :) Oh and my parents got me an atomic watch. B) and my brother got me a compression crimper and fittings for RG59, RG6, and BNC. :)

    I just finished my install of the B-Type rear spoiler thats available on the Touring car edition in Japan. The installation was very easy after getting the lower rear panel off. darelldd I know how you feel now. Those damn things almost seemed super glued to the car! I broke 1 clip in the process of taking it off but other than that it was easy. I hot glued the piece back onto the panel so I could still have a good connection and so the panel wont rattle around back there when driving. If I take it off again I know its going to break but I can just hot glue it again if necessary. The spoiler is a direct replacement for the stock spoiler so you can follow the spoiler removal process thats in the repair manual. You can get that here. http://techinfo.toyota.com I don't have much else to say about it other than IT LOOKS GREAT! B) Soon I will have a one of a kind Prius if not already. :) Unless [ you ] copies everything I do. :angry: ;) Just a [ you ] tag joke. YOU can copy me if you want.

    Here are some pictures

    Would it be terrible to just remove the spoiler? I bet it would make the back much more smooth...

    nice and streamline, improves on the lines that are already there and that's why I like it.

    Yes. The spoiler is critical to proper airflow over the car. To remove it would make it LESS aerodynamic.

    Hey, helpful post! Perhaps I missed it but where did you get that B-type spoiler? Did it come painted already? How much did it set ya back and the lens was included, right? I'd even be happy with a source to get a regular spoiler that comes pre-painted, or even a salvaged black spoiler...wife backed out of the garage w/the hatch open on our 3-month old Prius, DOH! Any help would be MUCH appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Thanks! Of course after I submit my question I see page 2 where someone asked the same thing...sorry! There were 5 mounting points, right? I think some of mine were striped out in the accident. Did any mounting hardware come with it?

    i have the touring (which has the larger spoiler) and i'm actually contemplating getting the smaller one... mainly because when i get my car washed (i live in an apt with no hose connectors so i can't wash it myself) the glass right under the spoiler never gets cleaned and/or rinsed off. boo.

    then again, it probably doesn't make that much of a difference from one size spoiler to the next

    I know what you mean! Actually, I have the small spoiler and that still happens. I'll see them swipe a towel across the rear window and as soon as I drive off, my spoiler starts crying onto the glass.
