Picked up a hirsch style spoiler for my 07 9-3 sport combi for a self xmas present and it really didn't come with mounting instructions. Looked around but couldn't find anything online or even a thread about anyone having one. Anyone have any experience installing one, etc...didnt know if you just pull back the headliner, undo some screws and take off the old spoiler. Also picked up an aero lip too......I have no clue why every pic i upload always displays flipped. They look good on my computer.

My advice: Paint it first. Use extra pair of hands. Use a suitable cord or flexible bar to thread brake light lead. Do not overtighten.

thanks...I've also searched WIS as the Hirsch directions say to use and can not find the directions for removal of the rooftop spoiler. It only seems to have sedan removal or lower spoiler shield stuff.I have win 10 on my laptop so maybe it might not let me view everything as it could be viewed??

Started painting the spoiler, aero lip and some eyebrows. Spoiler is two tone with a matte black underside, stock ice blue paint code 304 top. Still need to wetsand, rub then polish once the clear cures.

Spoiler and aero lip all sanded and polished. I'll have to redo the eyebrows as they dried an off color compared to the spoilers. But I guess that is what 20 degree temps will do or the paint mix in my second can was off...dried darker and doesn't match/blend with the car well like the other two

Anyone looking to do a similar spoiler for about 1/2 the cost, I saw this the other day. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Saab-9-3-CO...53.m1438.l2649
