So I thought of how to make the front lip spoiler (everywhere except North America but standard on the facelift) less obvious and got a bit carried away ! Not an exact colour match I know but only a rough preview of perhaps a more permanent professional shop modification.

Looks great. Color is a good match. Not sure you even need to get redone. Can you tell me where you purchased the spoiler from? Easy to install?

In Australia the front spoiler lip is standard as it is in Europe. Suncoast parts sell it in the US for $500. I believe it can be installed either by yourself or a garage.

Here is a link to a home install thread.

I’ll be plastidipping other areas until I am happy then get a garage to apply real matched paint and gloss to make it permanent.

PlastiDip is some cool stuff. I experimented by doing the wheels and other accents on my '14 Jeep Grand Cherokee, but probably not for someone if you're all about the details. I blacked out the wheels, emblems and grill for probably about $60 once it was all said and done. Personally, I'll only use it in the future if I'm contemplating a color mod to be able to see it on the vehicle for a couple days before I fully dive in.

Nice work though. The pics you posted show that you really took some time masking before spraying.

I'll be making many more potential mods in the next few days and post them. Yes masking takes ages but due to the nature of plastidip it easily separates at hard edges. I was going to add some subtle go-fast red as well. Stay tuned.

i used plastidip when i used to have a 2010 mdx... blacked out the 'beak' and model designations. really easy to use, the hardest part is indeed the masking

That looks nice. I don’t like the general look of that front spoiler in black, but painted looks great.

UPDATE: I do love the look of that black spoiler on rhodium silver... I installed it on mine (I had all the intention of painting it, but didn’t after I saw it installed). I think is the combination of black matching parts, with the lower stance of my Macan (20mm lower) and with the wheel spacers that make it look awesome.

This is awesome.
I prefer this over the full white, I just ordered the lip and using your style as inspiration.

do you have more photos?
