Spoiler swap question

Right now I have the stock spoiler (more like a lip) and I really like the CS/GT spoiler.

Have any of you swapped to that one and if so, do you have to drill new mounting holes? Also, what are you opinions on how it would looking keeping a new spoiler without the stripe.

No you do not have to drill new holes. Only have to drill if your car did NOT come with a stock spoiler.
I personally think it would look funny and not flow as well without the stripe.

I don't think this is correct. From AM's description:

Limited Drilling Required. This GT/CS Pedestal Style Spoiler mounts in four of the existing holes left by the stock factory rear wing spoiler, so you only need to drill four more holes for a relatively easy installation.

I am pretty sure there are 8 bolts on that spoiler. (I want it too and this has been holding me back)

I apologize. You are 100% correct. I didn't read the second description below. I figured it would mount just like the GT500 spoiler does.

Ugh that's disappointing but I was sort of seeing that answer coming. Thanks for the input, I'll keep the spoiler on the back burner after the warranty is up and all that. Maybe by that time they'll be cheaper in price too
