I took the spoiler off my MR tonight(getting re cleared) and I'm afraid to pop to trunk with the latch. I tested it by catching the lid half way up while my brother released it. That sucker flew up! The spoiler felt almost weightless in my hands yet on the trunk it was enough to keep the lid from lifting more than just a little. It will be off for about a week. Anyone know how much a back window costs?

I'll let you know how the RS bars work out; though they should work very well with a stock lid. I'm having mine installed later today.

The trunk was installed today:

1. The RS bars helped, but it still needs to be opened with the key in order to avoid the lid acting as a trebuchet. It's much better than using the stock bars that popped the lid with astonishing force, but it's not like stock.

2. The lid needed a lot of work. It had to be trimmed to fit the lock mechanism and the trimming wasn't minor.

3. The lid fits well, but it's not a factory-like fit. It was described by EvoDave as having a better than factory fit and that simply isn't so. To be fair, it's close to factory.

Overall, I'm happy with the product, but one shouldn't believe the sales pitch. If I had to do it all over again, I would have most likely purchased the RS lid.
