I do have the spoiler, but I wouldn't want my spoiler to be crooked, or too much left/right/top/bottom

It costs $25.00 for a template I'll cut, use for 2 mins. marking holes, and throw away. So I thought maybe someone had a PDF file they could share so I could print it out or something

Install this: http://www.cutepdf.com/download/CuteWriter.exe

then, if you got a scanner, scan it in.

After you scan in each image, you should "print", choose "CutePDF" as your printer, and it should let you save the document as a PDF, exactly the way I would see it when you print it out.

You just gotta make sure you don't mess up/distort the dimensions when you scan it in.

Thanks in advance!

I could be imagining things but I am pretty sure my mileage dropped. I think it looks alot better so im willing to loose a few mpg.

Really? I don't think I am willing to lose any MPG since I went from a 1st gen to this and lost substantial gas mileage. I was only interested in it if the rear window would stay a bit clearer.

Thank you for your input.

Some have recorded gas loss with the factory spoiler. However mine was on from the start and after I removed I didn't notice a increase. I did notice a decrease however when I installed the larger more upswept spoiler I have now.

I went on a long trip without the spoiler and recorded 32.6 MPG. Just came back from the same trip with the spoiler and recorded 32.2 MPG.

Sorry I missed your e-mail :yucky:. I am looking at my old spoiler template right now. Anyone else need one, let me know, I'll mail it to you as I have no use for it.

Anyway, my highway mileage is about the same as gr8scape mentions w/ spoiler. One thing for sure, once the spoiler is bolted on, there is no going back.

Would you by any chance still have a copy of the template? I need one for my installation. Thank You
