There could very well be an existing patent or active copyright that prevented them from producing an exact replica of the OEM ducktail. And I'm sure modifying the 3rd brake light to get it to adapt would've increased costs quite a bit.
If it sells well enough and the demand is there, I can see AM offering it pre-painted like they do with other pieces, which is a nice option.
I think they nailed the shape/style of the ducktail, the recessed 3rd brake light would take some getting used to but if you're wanting the look for less money it's the way to go.
And on the 01-04 cars there will be 2 holes that need to be plugged.
If you sand the plugs down or get some other plugs and sand them down and paint match you won't even see them until you're standing next to the car.
Or you can have it done at a body shop and if done correctly you would never even know there were holes there.
I considered it for my Mach 1 but I would want to keep the spoiler black and IMO it wouldn't look as good on Azure Blue as the 01-04 pedestal style spoiler.
