    Hey guys, I was just wanting some info on adding a rear boot spoiler (not a lip spoiler) to a 2014 Evoke. It has no lip spoiler at the moment.

    How hard is it to do? Where is the best place to buy and fit one around Brisbane or surrounds? Sorry if these are stupid questions, bit of a noob here.

    If you want a genuine spoiler, your best bet is to buy a s/h bootlid with a spoiler fitted and have it resprayed .
    Not a cheap exercise,,,,

    VX style fibreglass spoiler on VF

    Dear lord...

    Purchase, paint and fitting will cost you at least a grand...

    If you really want it ... you go to wreckers and buy a bootlid with the factory spoiler for less than that ...

    Massive waste of money either way...

    Possibly
    Just hate when people waste money on non functional mods that do not improve the car in any way...not even visually.
    Money could be spent on something that will make the car trully better...

    Look around ebay and wreckers for the spolier and with any luck you will find the same color and then line it up, drill holes and fit it or find a whole bootlid with one.

    If you get a different color one you will be looking at around $500 for a respray.

    If you need someone to fit it for you then try your local panel beater/painter as they have the skills and do that stuff daily.

    i'd try and chase a genuine one over that fiberglass one. just hold out until you get one. don't be in a rush and buy a crappy one. for reference the wing i believe was a $500 option at factory.

    He certainly can
    I am suggesting he gets something useful for his money.

    I.e. a set of good DBA slotted rotors and good brake pads. That way the car will look better and stop better...

    A piece of plastic stuck on a boot for a grand will give you nothing tangible...

    I reckon you're being a bit tough on him.

    I absolutely agree with what you say but when I was 17 I stuck a 1 1/2" copper pipe exhaust straight through from manifold to rear - on a 1000cc Morris Minor.

    I thought it sounded wonderful. You could hear it for miles. Gave me a lot of pleasure.

    Well worth the potential police record from where I knocked the pipe off from.

    Have an appointment next week for hearing check...

    That doesn't sound like you Ron. We've all agreed that we individually have the right and freedom to do what we like with our cars. A VF Evoke might be basic but if its the right colour, it needs only to have a nice set of wheels added and the spoiler could look right at home.

    To the Op. If the VF is similar to earlier models, the placement of the mounting screws for a spoiler should be obvious on the edge of the underside of the boot lid. It would comprise four small flat recesses pressed onto the inner skin. It is a straightforward job to fit but needs careful measuring and drilling to ensure accurate alignment. Your biggest cost would be painting.

    Yep, but the extent of spending can be reduced by not needing superior sound and upgraded suspension. The basic VF is a damned good car really only lacking a few comfort features and the visual impact of higher spec models. How many VE Omegas are running around with SV6 rims, spoiler and not much else? They still look the goods. Can't see why a VF can't be just as good without investing ridiculous amounts. The only design flaw with the Evoke is the dorky oversized grille. A bit of imagination can probably fix that.

    I remember my first car a Bellett 1500 sedan, I put a CanAm hot dog muffler on it, sounded great to me, Sunday driving down shopping strip - shops all closed then, no one around and the exhaust sound bouncing off the shop windows. I also remember going to Amaroo Park and someone there from memory a Datsun 1000 with a rectangular galvanised downpipe as exhaust.
