Hey, guys. It's Joe from AmericanMuscle and today, we're gonna be taking a closer look at the MMD V-Series Rear Spoiler, pre-painted, fitting all '15 and newer S550s. Now, this is gonna be a great option for you if you're looking for one of the most aggressive ducktail spoilers on the market that fits perfectly with the rear end of any S550 Mustang.So, first things first, let's dive into what the V-Series is made of, and that is durable yet lightweight automotive-grade ABS plastic. It also has that notch design, which not only adds to that factory design language, but it also helps with a little bit of rear visibility out of the rearview mirror. This one is painted in-house right here at AmericanMuscle, right to the Ford color code. As you can see, our competition orange here, this is going to be a perfect match. Same thing would apply to any other factory Mustang color out there. The guys in the paint shop do a great job making sure that you don't have to get this sprayed, and this drops right in place on any S550 Mustang.I'm really, personally, a huge fan of the V-Series. This just adds so much. It keeps that factory design language, just makes it more aggressive, adds so much presence to the rear of any S550. And our customers tend to agree with me as well. As of late 2019, this currently has 5 out of 5 stars with over 100 reviews. This is definitely a popular option, and there is a good reason for that.Pricing for this is going to come in right around 450 bucks. And for a pre-painted, perfectly matched part, that is a small price to pay. This adds so much to the rear of any S550. Like I've been saying, this is a great option if you're looking to upgrade that small ducktail spoiler to something that's a little bit more race-inspired.If you were looking to save about 100 bucks, you can pick this up unpainted from us as well. The install for this is going to be relatively easy if you do have a spoiler pre-installed from the factory on your Mustang. This is going to reuse all those mounting holes, so no drilling will be required. If you don't have a spoiler, you will have to do that, but a template does come included. Another thing worth mentioning is, if you have a California Special, unfortunately, this will not cover all of the holes used for that California Special spoiler. So, have some plugs ready to fill those holes. I'm gonna give this an easy two out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. At most, this should take you about a couple hours in the driveway. So, without any further ado, let me show you what tools you'll need, and how it's done.Tools required for this install are going to include a heat gun or hairdryer, adhesion promoter, and an alcohol wipe, both of these do come included in the kit, clean microfiber, trim panel removal tool, Phillips-head screwdriver, I also use this one on a socket to get into a tight space, 10-millimeter socket, ratchets, magnet on a stick is also a good idea to bring along, and not pictured in the shot will be the adhesive remover. I would recommend 3M automotive adhesion remover.So, in order for us to remove our factory spoiler, we need access to some hardware which is under this cardboard piece of felt here. So, we need to get that out of the way. In order to remove that, we need to remove these two rubber bumpers, then this plastic cover over the latch. We're gonna pull through the emergency trunk release, and then we're gonna remove all these push pins. And this should fall right out, allowing us access to the hardware.So, first things first, this cover over the latch just pulls right off. Now, ours has been off a couple of times, so you might need a trim panel removal tool to do that for the first time. And then you can unthread these rubber bumpers, and they'll come right out as well. Now, we need to remove all these push pins, there are nine of them. And to get those out of the way, I'm gonna use the trim panel removal toolSo, now this is all going to fall down, and one thing you wanna make sure you do is feed through that emergency release. Now, you can pull that off the Mustang.So, now we have access to all of our hardware. We're gonna go ahead and remove it. It's four 10-millimeter bolts across our trunk lid, and then the spoiler will be held on with some 3M double-sided tape. Now, one thing I do wanna touch on before you remove those bolts, you wanna be extremely careful not to drop them down the trunk lid, otherwise, you'll be fishing them out with a magnet for hours. So, use a magnet, try to, sort of, catch them. That's what we're gonna do on the outside here. For the middle, we should just be able to grab those on the way out. One thing I would recommend trying, if you just bring the trunk lid down like that, you can, sort of, bounce the screw on the socket as you're coming out. And that is also a good way to remove these. But without any further ado, let's go ahead and grab our 10 and remove these screws.So, you can see, I just have my magnet in here. We're gonna go over to the other side and do the same exact thing. And, like I said, the middle is a little bit easier.So, now our spoiler is just held on with that 3M double-sided tape. We're gonna take the heat gun, warm this up a little bit, and this thing should fall right off.So, now that we have our factory lip spoiler removed, I figure now would be the perfect time to set it down next to our V-Series and point out some key differences between the two. But really, there's gonna be a lot of similarities. One thing I did wanna touch on here is the paint match. If I put these two side by side, our guys over in the paint shop do a really great job on matching these to the factory Ford color code. Really, really nice match, it's gonna look great on our competition orange Mustang.Another thing I noticed, and really, really like about the V-Series is just how much it, kind of, emanates that factory lip spoiler. You can see this starts out on the side here raised up a little bit, and then you have this notch out of the center. Same thing over here on the V-Series, you have that, but a little bit more aggressive to say the least. It's, kind of, a little bit high up here on the side, and then you have this notch out of the center here. This is a little bit concave here, so that is a little bit different, as this is just kind of flat across the top. But I think it adds a nice look. It'll look right at home on our S550.Another similarity between these two is, the V-Series is going to come with that 3M tape installed, just like the factory stuff. We're going to install that in just a second. And the kit even includes some adhesion promoter and alcohol wipes to make sure the V-Series is going to get a good grip.Other than that, these are really, really similar spoilers. The V-Series is gonna be a little bit more aggressive. That factory spoiler, while it does have similar design language, is just going to be really toned down, and basically factory.So, without any further ado, we're gonna head back to our Mustang. We have a little bit of prep work to do on our trunk lid, and then we'll go ahead and tape this down. And then bolt it down.So, you can see, we still have some adhesive on our trunk lid here. I'm just gonna use a little bit of Goof Off on a rag. But I would recommend that 3M automotive adhesive remover, that stuff is really great and designed to work with their 3M double-sided tape. You can pick that up at a local auto parts store. That's what I would personally use but, hey, this works just as well. Now that the trunk lid's clean, we can go ahead and prep that with the alcohol pads included in the kit.So, now our trunk lid is ready for our V-Series. And if you remove that factory spoiler, you'll already have the holes pre-drilled. However, if you don't, the kit does include a template for you to make those holes. That is really, really simple to use. Now, once you're ready, you can go ahead and apply this adhesion promoter if you'd like. That's just gonna make sure the double-sided tape sticks really well. In our case, we're gonna skip that, and all we're going to do is use the tape here. And all we need to do for that is just to pull off this backing. We're also going to apply these little foam pads around each bolt hole just to give our spoiler a little bit of a buffer in between the spoiler and the painted trunk lid. And we're gonna drop this spoiler on.The kit does include new hardware to bolt this to the trunk lid. Four Phillips-head bolts later, and this will be installed. Again, you just wanna be extra careful here not to let these drop down into the trunk lid itself. And we're gonna do the same thing for the two holes in the middle. It can be a little bit tough to turn this corner here, so I'm gonna use the Phillips-head on the ratchet to get these last couple of turns.So, now we can put the trunk liner back together, and we're gonna start by feeding through that emergency latch. And then we can pop this in with a couple of push pins. Now, we can take care of all this. We can put our release safely into that cardboard felt. Now, we're going to install our rubber stoppers. It should just thread right back in. And lastly, the cover for the trunk latch, and we are all set.Guys, that is gonna do it for me. It's also gonna do it for the MMD V-Series Rear Spoiler, pre-painted, fitting all '15 and newer S550s. As always, thank you guys so much for watching. Subscribe for more like this.

First off, I am a big American Muscle fan, and I have bought many, many things from them... Let me start with saying that for this spoiler, it SPECIFICALLY says fits convertibles. It says this both in the description and in the questions/answers section. So I went ahead and spend ALOT of money for this spoiler. THIS DOES NOT fit a convertible well. there are gaps on BOTH sides of the wing/spoiler where it should make contact with the trunk and it does not. I spent a lot of effort to take off the factory spoiler and now that its off, I have no choice but to use this one even though it doesn't fit well. Oh..... and.. the instructions were a JOKE and the mounting templates.... completely useless. I am super super disappointed. I wish I would have bough a drake wicker bill. I have been a huge American Muscle fan.. but I think from now on I will find somewhere else for my needs.Helpful (0)

Perfect color match
My car came without a spoiler. Man this one just makes the car stand out from the other mustangs. Everyone around here has the stock lip or the GT spoiler. Haven't seen anyone else in my area with it. The install is pretty easy and straight forward. i would recommend using a clear nail polish over the holes you drill to help prevent rust.Helpful (0)

The video said you could use the same holes from your factory spoiler I have a 2018 EcoBoost I had to drill all four holes made a mess out of my trunk one side sticks up slightly from possibly being warped very hard to do yourself I'd advise you to have a professional put it onHelpful (0)

2020 GT Mustang in Velocity Blue Convertible
Love the look and paint match perfect. The template could be better because we had to drill center holes first and then push down on ends and remark the side holes. A better template would be a flat one instead of the tape pieces. Other than that it look great and fits great!!!Helpful (0)

Exactly as advertised!
At first I was a little worried about drilling into my Mustang, but the drill templates worked perfectly and the instructions were simple and well-illustrated. It took me a little longer to install because the screws were tricky to get into the spoiler heli-coils from the bottom of the deck lid by myself. I do recommend using a Klein tool for the screws, but was able to temporarily secure them to my screwdriver with masking tape, and after the first few threads, losing them inside the lid became a non-issue. I also recommend masking tape to hold the templates in place while you remove the spoiler, and have some good spade bits around to start the holes- so the actual bit doesn’t skid around and scratch up your paint. The wing fits perfectly, and I love the rad custom look it gives my S550! Now I just need to lower it.. Seriously this is an OEM-quality part and the fit/paint was perfectly matched right out of the box. At $450 it’s kind of pricey, but again it’s a high quality product. There’s cheaper options out there, but I didn’t want to end up with something on my ride that looked cheap and flimsy. My one complaint would be that MMD should use studs and bolts instead of screws, that would make a solo install way easier. Overall satisfaction 5/5Helpful (0)

Need For Green Mean Spoiler
The MMD V Series spoiler was easy to install and totally makes the car look meaner. I did have to drill my own holes which made me a bit anxious but it all worked out. Took the car to a graphics place to have the black stripe extended over the spoiler. Overall very satisfied!Helpful (0)

Looks great and finish is great
Really transforms your car and gets rid of looking like any old stock mustang. Highly recommend. Only downside is when mounting you screw up into the wing Instead of the bolts already being on the wing. Makes in more of a pain to line up and not loose screws and bolts in your trunk lid. But as long as your careful and have a second hand to help line it up its fairly straightforward.Helpful (1)

Looks Great But...
Ok, I really like this piece. Its the 2nd color matched painted piece I have ordered from AM and their Paint and color matching is great. The piece looks great. However, the original piece had alignment pegs, this one did not. The original had 2 plastic snap fasteners to help hold it in place for installation, this one did not. But I think the biggest disappointment was the original had studs and nuts, this one used Phillip head screws and you really need an extra hand to help align and hold in place, I can't tell you how much easier it would have been with studs and nuts instead of screws. Also make sure you have some dang good Decal and tape remover on hand you will need it.Helpful (0)
I have a base gt with the small spoiler (non track pack) will this fit the holes that are in the trunk left by the fact spoiler? says it doesn't fit gt/cs .
The MMD V-Series Rear Spoiler will cover or use all of the existing holes from your stock spoiler on the base GT.
What's the difference between shadow black and black?
Shadow black is a metallic paint, where as the traditional black does not have any metallic flake.
Does this have any functional value or is it just for looks?
This will have functional value as it will give your car more aerodynamic downforce.
Is the unpainted version flat black or matte black?
The MMD V-Series Rear Spoiler will actually arrive in a flat/matte gray ready to be painted.
Do you think this MMD rear spoiler will fit on 2018 Mustang GT ?
At this time, we do not have confirmation if the MMD V-Series Rear Spoiler will fit 2018 Mustangs, the product will be updated accordingly when that information is available.
This is specifically designed to reuse the existing holes left in the deck lid by the stock wing on Fastback models. Convertible models equipped with a stock wing will not be able to reuse the factory holes and will require additional drilling for proper installation.
At this time the MMD V-Series Rear Spoiler is not available in white platinum. Since white platinum is a tri coat color, this makes painting items in this color more expensive, as well as much more difficult to match. At this time, we do not have any type of ETA on when or if this may be available.
The MMD V-Series Rear Spoiler will cover the holes from the GT350 Track pack's spoiler.
White Platinum is a tri-coat paint which is complex to paint and difficult to match and for this reason, the color is not available, we apologize.
This will reuse the holes that are left by the stock factory wing.
Yes, this spoiler will cover the holes left by the factory spoiler excluding the California Special models.
The MMD V-Series Rear Spoiler reuses the factory mounting holes left by the factory fastback wing.
We do not recommend using the unpainted MMD V-Series Rear Spoiler or other MMD painted parts without first prepping and painting them, as the unpainted ABS plastic will have no UV resistance and will quickly fade. We recommend having this primed and painted with automotive grade paint.
This spoiler will work on your 2015 Roush Mustang with the 3rd brake light on the truck lid.
