It looks like the Wing spoiler is available on ALL BUT the Touring model (based on the build web site).

I believe this is because the Touring has a built-in LIP Spoiler.

Can someone confirm this is correct?

The "Exterior Features" section at this Honda specs page says the EX-T, EX-L and Touring all have the body-colored decklid spoiler. So I'd guess it not being available for the Touring is just a glitch.

It's not an option on the Canadian build page either. Best to walk into a dealership and ask with the spec page on your phone.

Wonder why it's an option on the EX-T and EX-L to add the wing spoiler but comes with the decklid spoiler. Can you replace the decklid with the wing when purchasing the car?

There's a decklid spoiler and a wing spoiler. Both ugly IMO. Hopefully the decklid is just installed with some double sided tape and doesn't drill into the trunk so when people install other spoilers they won't have to worry about the holes.

Another forum posted the installation instructions for the lip spoiler, looks like it does in fact drill into the trunk and uses a bracket inside the trunk to hold the spoiler at 2 points.

The Touring has the subwoofer, which interferes with installation of the heavy duty trunk springs, which are needed when the spoiler is installed.

Yea, i don't care if they offer it or not because it doesn't look good, and I don't imagine its doing anything in terms of performance for the car either.

I can confirm it's needed - after I put the lip spoiler on my Accord, I tried popping the trunk before putting the new springs on, and it would barely move. It's not just the weight - it's the distance from the pivot point. Leverage.

I checked this when I test drove a Touring today. The springs are not close to the sub (see pic)
