Delema- I want to purchase the rear wind deflector (spoiler) for my 2013 xB.
Dealer price is $320.00 and $125.00 for install which also puts it under dealer warranty.
On line I have found several that state "factory style" for as low as $130.00 they look to be the same but im not sure how exact they are. Several ad's offer color matching.
What would you suggest or do?
Thank you.

I got mine from eBay for about $130. It came painted super white and is made of abs plastic, not fiberglass. The quality is an 8/10. The only issue I have, which is minor, is that the paint has a little orange peel and the color is a little brighter than the body. The color is probably from it being abs, as my bumpers seem a little brighter than the body too.

The only thing I changed for the install, was to replace the thick foam gasket with 3M tape. This brought the spoiler down a bit for a nicer fit. The template was very basic, but it worked fine.

All in all, I love it and it looks great. Land vehicle Vehicle Car Motor vehicle Automotive design

I bought mine from spark trd and installed it my self. No regrets quality is 100% awesome. Install is not to hard as long as you have templates. I also installed the c-pillar storage this morning in 20 min. and the car looks finished inside now.

Me too. Got mine also from Sparks. Color was right on and with the install instructions, the spoiler went on with no problems. Just be careful when putting the holes in on the left side. Make sure the wiring harness is out of the way.

When you get it from Sparks, they have a warranty. If it's installed per the instructions, the only thing in question is the paint and that is not warranted.

Most get them from their local Toyota regional supply. They get the dealer discount and add the standard markup to retail. Some dealers (like Sparks) don't markup as much but get a higher volume,therefore getting a greater income.

All good advice. I am going to order mine and install it myself.
I contacted the dealer and was informed that the warrantycovers the install and also the spoiler/deflector for complete replacement should it fall/fly off after being installed by them on the dealer purchased spoiler/deflector only.
