2105 S63 Full Carbon
Question Advice please - CF or body-colored rear spoiler

Fellas -

Trying to decide whether a CF spoiler or a body colored one would look best. The car has the CF package so I am looking to see if someone has done either or both on their 63 please. A bit concerned with CF overload??

Pic of the car below for reference.

Thanks in advance

Itís not an S63, but to give you an idea going with your silver body trunk spoiler which to me is too plain for my taste.



I personally would go with carbon fiber to add contrast to the tires, side rocker inserts.






Got a brand new one for [email protected]$550 plus shipping if your interested.

good point as I think you're right that it's way too plain jane - however the CF one picture here is quite a bit larger than the OEM painted number. Does it look proper in person?

I believe youíve already seen this thread, but you can see the difference right from the photos on this thread OEM vs Brabus style trunk spoiler:

https://mbworld.org/forums/s63-amg-s...o-spoiler.html

The OEM trunk spoiler looks too plain to me, almost like it just adds a step higher than the actual trunk.

I do love the Brabus style spoiler and do get complimented even when going into the dealer for service. Itís not too aggressive, but itís sharp enough for the eye especially in the CF form. Got a brand new one with your name for $600 including shipping within the US.

I think it definitely comes down to personal preference. I prefer the smaller OEM-like spoiler since I don't want my rear spoiler being the only thing people remember about my car. I'll post pictures of my AFTER pics when I get back in the country on Friday. I just say pick wisely. Last thing you want to do is get one installed and then change your mind.

I would go against the grain and go OEM body colored. I like the very slight look of a spoiler instead of one that terrifically stands out. But I'm not the norm, I'm sure.

Another vote for body colored.
Prefer subtle accents.

This is my 2016 S63, with factory spoiler. Love it. It really helps at 200+ speeds, just kidding.

Its odd, the car looks allot better with one. I think if you custom order one you have the option to choose one?

I rest my case. This spoiler is body colored and looks absolutely fantastic. In fact, it looks so good, that I'm now interesting in getting one too, depending on price. Do I just contact my parts department for this and if you don't mind sharing how much it cost and how much it cost to install it, I'd appreciate it. If not, can you just PM me?

Thanks for all the feedback and PMs guys! I've decided that the CF spoiler in the smaller/thinner OEM format is the way to go given my CF package on the car. Once I get it installed, I will update the thread with some pics.

When the car was special ordered due to the build sheet, I had the dealer order all the factory accessories I wanted. The spoiler had to be painted and installed. All of this was included in the final price along with the extended warranty and the maintenance plan.. The only thing that did not work out, was the rear mud flaps. They also painted those to match, however they did not realize they were for an S550 and would not work on an S63. I still have them in my garage, brand new.

Update

so I received the spoiler and itís beautifuly made. However, itís a lot wider than I had anticipated and the photos had shown. Itís a bit much for my taste so weíre back to the drawing board to find an OEM-sized CF wing

Before and after

Too much of a scoop up


About an inch too wide

Whoa, that is ... wide. What about doing the OEM color match painted one like "BarryRobinson19" had posted of his white one? That looks PURRRFECT to me and more stealthy as well.

IMO That looks nice! Have you thought about having the back portion of the sun roof and shark fin antenna painted black. I think that would give the panorama roof flow better?

Agree, loving mine though it seems a little different.

New one installed from JB Speed. A bit wider than the OEM but the fit and finish is great and looks pretty darn good!

Looks good! Did they wrap the shark fin antenna or painted?
