Just ordered the spoiler, got it for $207.00 painted, tax and I pick it up at my local Nissan dealer. I did it this way so if it's damaged they can order another one. By the way is there instructions included? Also you said it was easy which I'm thinking it is, any tips you might know of would be helpful? Peace

I like that grille Q, how much did that cost you and was it an easy install
No it wasn't easy, it was crazy. My original upper radiator cover doesn't fit the SR grille which is on all the cars except the SR. So if you get the SR grille you have to get the SR upper radiator cover also.... then paint it!!! All in about $340. I would have done what you did if I would have known the cost. Nobody had any info on the SR grille swap so I bit the bullet and tried it. I got the grille off(PITA) and put the SR grille on and that's when I found out my original upper part didn't fit. I was already 1/2 way there so I kept going with it. I love the way it looks and I'm happy I did it now, chances of seeing the SR grille on a regular non SR Note is slim to none. I think I'm the only one in Fort Worth, even my dealer was surprised to see it and hasn't seen another one. Q

Yea when i ordered the spoiler i got directions with it. You basically line it up with the double sided tape they send with it, and then u line up holes and drill. Should be pretty simple.

Got the spoiler yesterday, wow it's a lot more work than I though. Tons of holes to drill, should be fun. I'm going to install probably next week as I need some tools to install, nobody I know has a 30mm metal circle saw for the spoiler install so I gotta go get one. Came complete just like you said, I'm impressed. Got the instructions on-line and they are excellent if not long!!! I did put a towel on the roof to see what it would look like and it's going to definitely add some style Thanks RFJ1023 for instigating this mod for me. Q

Should be as easy as apple pie! Attach the template to the spoiler and lay the spoiler where you'd like it. Then, with the spoiler on the hatch, gently pull the template off the spoiler and attach the template to the hatch. That should give you the three holes you have to drill. Hopefully they gave you bolts. Drill them in and you are all set.

Crazy mine has like 7 holes to drill. It's factory OEM part. Is the first gen spoiler attached with only 3 bolts on top?

Yeah mine was only 3 or 4 bolts. Even putting on RJF1023's spoiler was like 3 or 4 bolts

Hmmm... I'll take some pictures of it before install, maybe this one is different. From Nissan estore part# 999J1-4ZQAC, the QAC part is just the color code at the end of the part #. Do your part # match the 999J1-4Z***. Crazy RJF1023 car is the same. Again I'll take some pictures next week and post. Q

Just took a look at Car-Id and looks like the one I got, the OEM one has more holes to drill I guess. Once I get that sucker on there it won't be coming off that's for sure!!! 8 bolts sounds like over kill. Q
