Rear spoiler

Hey guys. I've been thinking about taking my rear spoiler off. I love the look without it. But without having to fill in the holes and repaint the trunk what other ways can I fill in the bolt holes?

I'm pretty sure the holes don't leak on your year model in case you didn't wanna plug them? Otherwise go to parts place and get some small door fastener or rubber plugs & use like rubber silicone with them unless someone has a better recommendation. I love the wingless look

Just take some nylon plug it`s work well... but my preférence is to brng the car to a body shop to fill the holes.. or if your lucky, you can check on internet for a trunk cover wihtout the spoilers (holes free)

IMO the plugs are temporary and are for you to decide if you like the spoilerless look. Driving around with plugs in for months on end, to me is rice.

Costs maybe 10$ to delete the spoiler depending on ones pickiness and it looks good so why not do it! Cost me alot more cause I had my holes filled professionally but I'm ok with that, I love it.

Sorry for voicing my opinion. Still looks cheap ( rice) or whatever you may call it. I've seen it in person and its tacky. Save up and do it right.

Just because the majority of you take the cheap route that looks half assed doesn't make your version any better. Cheap *** plugs ftw

Are you trash talking me or complimenting? My trunk would leak if I didn't fill the holes. I never said mine was any better than anyone's car on here.

If you do the plugs right you can't even tell they are there... Doesn't matter to me though cause mine came from the factory wingless.
