Excellent news mate,
Look forward to the results,
Does the mk3 have an existing spoiler to be removed and replaced with the ZS one,
Or does it fit to the boot as an extra instead of a replacment?

If i had the Spray gun and compressor i would love to have a go :) , but alas i don't, and spray cans probably won't give me a decent enough finish , i will prep it though and rub it down ready for them to just spray .

As per message dude as I couldn't remember the underneath properly, there are 7 bolts which are covered- 3 in the middle and 2 either side. The locating lugs slide into the rectangle shape bits, the foam strip runs between those 2 ridges which will but up to the rear window when fitted, also there should be 2 small clear silicon bits which sit on the corner of the spoiler that comes close to the rear quarter once fitted. You will also have a bit of aero tape which is supposed to be used to protect the paint from rubbing on the spoiler if you don't go for a stubby arial. Part number 1695481 for a dab arial mast.
