I knew it would be prone to scuff and cut up some on the underside of the spoiler at how low and protruding the chin spolier is but was really mad at myself with how easy it actually cracked open and now i need to replace it my question is has any one had to replace their chin spoiler and if so how did they find getting the replacement from their dealers. First dealer i contacted knew absolutely nothing about this chin spoiler ,,and he told me there is no part # for it. Just a lazy parts guy . Second dealer was more helpful and i got the part ordered. Any one else who has replaced the spoiler on account of curb damage or whatever?.

I feel your pain mike,,,for your information the spoiler sells for $400 and change. The good thing is i will do the install myself . Doing auto body for 46 years makes me qualified i think.

I was parking it on my lift for the first time and the darn car is so wide, I caught the right side of the spoiler on the cable and pulled it off. I am hoping there is no significant damage--will look when I get back from the track on Monday--will lament over it here in this forum

Leased my 2016 right off the showroom floor. They told me the chin spoiler was still in the box in the trunk (they are put on by dealerships after arrival due to not scrapping while getting car off transport) and would put it on if I wanted but it would put nose even closer to the ground. I told them to leave it off. And since mine does not have track pack I don't plan on taking it to the track to only have it go into limp mode due to the transmission not having a cooler I don't plan to put it on unless they come up with a transmission/differential cooler kit. No one even realizes it isn't on there and it looks just fine without it.

That don't sound good mike,. If its torn off i'm sure not alone have you damage done to the right side section but to the attachments of the center section. That would be ok in itself but the whole front splitter comes in 3 pieces ,,,center,,rh/ lh,,and as far as i'm aware it has to be purchased as a full unit piece with all 3 pieces combined @ $482 .00. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but that's how it is. I'm still mad at myself for doing what i did to mine. I just picked up my replacement today and will do the install tomorrow.

And be sure that it is installed correctly. Dealer installed mine and it looked great. That was until I took it out and hit 148 MPH and it came apart. Apparently the dealer didn't install the screws that hold it on and left it up to the snaps to hold it in place. If I never hit that speed I would probably never have found out.
