They should flex and bounce thats normal all spoilers do. I remember speaking to a guy whos a car body sprayer, he was telling me spoilers are harder to paint for that reason so the paint doesn't crack. I would say you will see it more as it's in line with the rear view.

I'm only having the base and uprights painted, the top part of the wing is staying carbon and being lacquered. Plus, my paint shop guy has been in business for 30 years so I'm sure he'll do it right lol. Just wondering if it's noticeable at motorway cruising speeds, my girlfriend has told me I'm not allowed a new spoiler but I forgot that when I ordered it!

You can see it's not so noticeable when driving behind though, how much is the vibration from the rear view mirror that emphasizes it I'm not to sure but the Bugeye I have has a smaller prodrive uk 300 spoiler and you can see that when you look in the mirror moving around. And I'm sure your sprayer do just fine mate :) I just remember one telling me about spoilers when I was having one sprayed said it's the worse things to spray more than bumpers :)

Just to round off this little topic and say thanks for the replies I've had my carbon spoiler on for a few weeks now. Not that I've exceeded any speed limits but even up to 120mph it doesn't move at all. Not even slightly. I would say to anyone fitting an aftermarket spoiler be prepared to make it fit. The advert says it'll fit perfectly but not the case. Took a lot of trial fits before I was happy with it and thank god my body shop guy is awesome. The other thing about it is I wasn't aware of the puddles that form on the boot now!
