So I stumbled across this video last night and I am now on a mission to secure one of these wings for my car. Problem is thus far they seem nigh impossible to find. Perhaps with our collective abilities (and hopefully collective desire for this part) we can find a source? I mean its an oem part for crying out loud. How hard can it be to get one in the states?

Almost impossible. I used to work for Hyundai, and since the car isn't sold in North America they don't/ won't import it over here. As for Independent Dealerships, they might, however the spoiler costs about a thousand freedom bucks BEFORE shipping and handling. The other option is continue to browse UK/AUS/CZ/RU ebay, Wrecker websites, or contact dealerships outright to see if they can import one. I believe this guy got it from someone who had wrecked his I30N or it had received an aftermarket one, thus leading to selling it to this guy. I've been on the lookout since I received the car, I even have the VIN off a wrecker car that I used to find the part number for everything I wanted.

This does look suspiciously like the spoiler from the veloster N. Have you looked into measurements on that spoiler?

So my buddy has a 2020 Veloster 2.0L, The Veloster N spoiler fit no issue on his car. I attempted to put on his stock wing on my EGT N-Line, and it was too short. (Yes, I knew it wouldn't fit anyways). So the VN wing would not fit on our vehicles, because we're a wider car.

Thanks for shooting down my hopes and dreams lol!

Even Justin Kelly (the video maker) got lucky finding that spoiler, and it wasn't in perfect shape. A good scratch or two (hopefully will buff out, but uncertain).

I bought the last set of i30N front door sills he managed to get on a group buy. Decent guy.

Looks great on the NLine.

Yeah I got extremely lucky. Since I bought mine used from a wrecked (and damaged) I30 N hatch that was removed from the car and to be sold separate, I have come across ONE other used spoiler for sale. It was purchased by a Canadian buddy who helped me a lot with my Veloster N exhaust swap so I thought it was only fair to send the link his way. After all costs, it was "only" around $200 USD cheaper than buying a new one from overseas including shipping which can be done for about $1,000-1,050 shipped. I still think mine is the worst condition spoiler in North America but I can definitely say it was the cheapest aside from the one who someone got for free on some sort of accidental inclusion for some package of motorsports parts or something like that. I can say I will never go back to the stock spoiler for as long as I own this car now... it makes the N Line's rear end (along with larger exhaust tips even if they aren't 5" like mine).

I'm so jealous! I want this part more than anything else for my car.

Did you find out if those scratches would buff out? I was thinking you could at least reduce them with the right buffing compound, then maybe wax it, and they'd nearly disappear.

If I could find one of these for a reasonable price, even from overseas, I'd consider it. I'm wondering which country (exchange rate might figure in) would be the least expensive way to get it.

This is not a bad car if you buy it used, because the price for a new one is very high. In general, when buying a supported car, I try to order an epicvin report. Epicvin helps me buy a car. I know that I will definitely buy a normal car.
Is this an ad?
