Jonboy,
I have yet to find anyone who can say what date they changed spoilers on the production line or even if they ever changed the production line.  I did finally decide that my car came with the first design and it was a 07c manufacture...very late in the year....that is why I wonder if they ever changed the production line spoiler.  The part # 3943249, you quote above, is the second design and I think, but not sure, that it was probably a service part and not a production part.  Just my take on it, could be wrong.

I am including a link to my original thread on the subject....it includes all the part numbers and some additional discussion on the subject.
