$424.99 (each)FREE Shipping
Hey, everybody, Alex with americanmuscle.com. Today, I'm bringing my detailed review and installation of MMD's Carbon Fiber Ducktail Spoiler, fitting all 2010 through 2014 Mustangs. So no matter the model, be it GT, or V6, or 500, MMD's Ducktail Spoiler in Carbon Fiber is gonna be a great option for the Mustang owner out there that's looking for an incredibly unique and aggressive-looking option that's going to further accentuate the rear end as well as the lines of your Mustang.But real quick before I get too ahead of myself here, in terms of that installation or lack thereof, if your Mustang did come equipped with a spoiler, you're looking at a very simple swap here. However, if it did not, you're gonna be looking at the slightest amount of drilling. However, either way, I'm still gonna be giving this a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter and about an hour's worth of labor, and I'm gonna have more for you coming up on that later.But aside from the installation, plain and simple here, guys, this is gonna appeal to the S197 owners out there that just flat out love carbon fiber parts, what they do for your Mustang, but for someone that's not gonna be afraid to pay that price tag for what usually comes with any type of carbon fiber add-on. And being said, you should expect to be spending $350 here. Don't get me wrong. While I know that sounds expensive, there are plenty of other options out there in that price range. However, I will throw it out there that those are going to be unpainted options.But since it's released from MMD, this ducktail spoiler in carbon fiber has been received incredibly well, be it at your local car show or even at the track. I would also totally encourage you to check out the product page, where you can see just how many people installed this on their car and some of the really nice things that they had to say about it. Now, this is definitely something, in my opinion, I think that's sticks out like a sore thumb in the best way possible here. From my youth, I've always loved carbon fiber parts and what they do for any car. And on the Mustang here, this is really something that I think it's a great nostalgic throwback and feel to some of the cars that get through here. Not only that, it just looks great right here as well as it does on the vehicle itself.In terms of the construction and materials utilized here, guys, you guessed it, this is 100% carbon fiber. This is not a wrap. This is not a dip or anything at all. This is vacuum infused with resin. It's finished off in a really great-looking clear coat shine, something that I personally like about it as it's not something that's gonna pit, fade, or get chalky over time, like you might find with cheap or inexpensive and inferior carbon fiber.Now, additionally, with some of the inferior or cheaper kinds of carbon fiber out there, that could be hoods, trunks, spoilers, you name it, something that I personally pay attention to is the weave or the pattern that's used here. With MMD's Ducktail Spoiler, there's absolutely zero inconsistencies whatsoever, and at the end of the day, it's just a really nice-looking part. And in terms of the pricing, like I mentioned earlier, what this is gonna do to your wallet, it's only gonna be $350. That might sound expensive, but I'd throw it out there that there are other options out there which can easily get over $500. At that point, those aren't even gonna be unpainted. However, on the flipside of the coin here, for $50 less than the carbon fiber one, you can get one that is going to be prepainted to your car or maybe do a black one to just mix up the theme.So, again, for the money here, guys, you're getting way with 100% carbon fiber, some really stellar and aggressive looks, as well as ensuring that you're gonna have a perfect fit from MMD, which we're gonna talk about right now. And as I said earlier, in terms of the installation, you're gonna be looking at a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter and about an hour's worth of labor to get this onto your car. And looking closer, if your Mustang did come equipped with a spoiler from the factory, you're really gonna be looking at essentially a very easy swap from one to the other. But if your Mustang did not come equipped from the factory with a spoiler, you are gonna be doing the slightest amount of drilling. If this is something that you're just not comfortable with doing, there's no shame in taking this to a body shop to have the work done, but MMD is gonna have a very detailed set of install instructions that will come with this ducktail as well as having a drilling template to take all the guess work out of getting this on your car.For installation purposes here, we're gonna be showing you how to install this on a car that did come equipped with a spoiler from the factory. To begin, you're gonna need to get into your trunk and then pull down your liner, where you can then access the Ford 10-millimeter bolts holding your factory spoiler in place. So once those nuts are removed, you're gonna need to then remove your factory spoiler. I could personally tell you that it's held on there very well, and I would suggest using a plastic pry tool and then maybe something like some light-gauge fishing line to work it underneath there. And then once that's removed, you're gonna need to take a ton of 3M adhesive remover, something like that or Goo Gone, and then liberally coat all that adhesive. Let it soak for a while, and then work that off into your trunk.Now, having done a spoiler swap before, I can tell you that the most painful or difficult part is honestly just removing that factory adhesive off of your trunk. However, once that's off, it's nearly prepping the surface with the supplied 3M alcohol swab, getting this down onto your trunk, pulling the tape, and then installing your hardware, and then you're good to go.So that's gonna then conclude the installation and my review with MMD's Ducktail Spoiler in Carbon Fiber, fitting all 2011 through 2014 Mustangs, available right here at americanmuscle.com.

Hardest part was removing the factory spoiler but some goo gone and plastic scraper, it came off fine. Only reason I gave 4 stars is because the front tips of the spoiler had minor chips.Helpful (0)

Really nice so far
Got this wing and was really excited to slap it on, got it around 9pm and took me a while to install only because the old adhesive was so hard to get off. But I’m super happy with the outcome, but one of the threads for the screws was super rough so was unable to get the screw to go all the way in unfortunately I just hope when I get my car painted I can get it off easily without to much struggle.Helpful (0)

2010 Mustang GT Carbon Fiber Spoiler
The spoiler looks awesome. Removal of stock spoiler and trunk lid preparation took the most time - about 2 hours. Instructions were well written with installation taking approximately an hour.. Recommend getting 5 inch antenna to replace the stock antenna. When opening and closing the hood, the spoiler hits the antenna, which will likely weaken the epoxy finish over time. Customer Service at American Muscle is always pleasant in my opinion.Helpful (1)

Looks Great !
Opened package and it was really packed well double styrefoam and both ends had were well protected by covers. I had heard stories about damage due to improper packing but mine was well protected. Had all the necessary tape, hardware and even a template to refill if needed. I did not have to. Installation was pretty straight forward except removing the old factory tape residue it took a couple hours to get it off. Actual installation was a breeze but install was compounded just cleaning the old tape offHelpful (0)
this would delete the rear view camera ?
This would remove any wing mounted back up cameras.
I have a 2011 V6 premium and it has a backup camera built into the factory wing, my guess is that replacing it with this wing will remove the option for that backup camera, or is there a way I can drill a hole for the camera on the new wing???
This will remove the rear-facing camera, and we do not recommend drilling into this spoiler.
I have a 2013 GT premium will this spoiler bolt directly on? Also what are the maintenance tips for this spoiler does the sun affect the spoiler's appearance over time?
California Special GT or GT Premium owners will find the holes left from the factory spoiler will not line up perfectly for installation of this MMD Ducktail Spoiler. The original holes will be covered by the spoiler but will need new holes for proper installation. This is painted and clearcoated as the original paint from production on your Mustang. We recommend hand cleaning with soap and water to ensure dirt and debris does not build up. Exposure to the sun will not effect the paint or clearcoat on this product.
Will this spoiler work on my 14 V6 ,I have no one spoiler?
This spoiler will work with a V6 Mustang even if you do not have a spoiler from the factory. Since you do not have a factory spoiler, you would need to drill holes in order to have this spoiler secured to your Mustang.
My 14'gt currently has the oem spoiler, will this one reuse the current holes?
The MMD Ducktail Spoiler will reuse the current holes and will cover any existing holes left over from the OEM spoiler excluding the GT/CS and GT Premium models.
The MMD Ducktail Spoiler will covers Holes left by Factory Wing but excludes GT/CS & GT Premium Wings.
Yes, the MMD Ducktail Spoiler comes with the 4 necessary screws and washers needed for the install.
This will come with double sided 3M tape to to go along with the hardware for this spoiler to bolt into place.
Hi, This ducktail spoiler is built for looks not aerodynamics.
The MMD Ducktail Spoiler - Carbon Fiber (10-14 All) may require you to drill new holes, however it will not leave any of the factory holes exposed.
The How To Install a MMD Ducktail Spoiler does not come with a drilling template. AmericanMuscle recommends professional installation of all body parts. Some customers were able to find other ways to line up where their holes needed to be drilled and installed the spoiler themselves, but we would not recommend this unless you felt comfortable doing so.
This will perfectly! I took my factory spoiler off and added this Ducktail and I have to say I wish I had done it way sooner. Every thing will line up perfectly to the factory holes.
