Spoiler has arrived , now the search starts for a body shop to get it Sprayed , i can't beleive how light it is i though it would be heavy.


Looks excellent preee,
Look forward to the finished results mate,
Colour codeing is cheaper than any hair dressers with the same level of transformation on the body.

Modifications vs spoilers:

1) Mods last longer
2) Mods once made are less likely to want to be changed
3) Mods are more likely to get a second glance by men and woman
4) You can take a pair of scissors to do your own modification, and if you mess it up, you dont have to wait 3 weeks for it to grow back!
5) Mods are less likely to fade
6) Mods are cheaper by the time they have hit 6 months, than all the haircuts the woman folk have been had in the meantime
7) Mods dont get complained aboout when they get washed and its all gone curly, and you just wasted several pounds getting it done
8) Mods dont require up to an hour or two to be prepared before you go out.

...Too much mods Bias....

1) Hair grows back if its damaged, and doesnt need to be replaced (unless your called Wayne Rooney...)
2)... struggling now... HELP!

Picked up my spoiler today from the body shop , so here are a few pictures i have taken before , during and after installation.
very easy to fit , remove inside top panel just clips out , 4x T20 torx , two each side and 3x 10mm bolts , the original spoiler had two plastic clip in guides and two plastic puch clips so after removing the bolts i had to give a slight pull to unclip.
Removed the high break lamp 2x T20 torx and washer pipe , and removed the old spoiler from the car , swapped over the plastic clips onto new spoiler ,
added the stick on soft protection strip athat nd fitted to the car. :)
I have noticed a slight colour grade difference , so i checked back to the body shop and they said that it will go slightly darker to match when the sun gets on the spoiler , if not then they will respray it for me , hardly noticable apart from me wanting perfection haha.
But i am really pleased in what a difference it has made and looks really nice.

Yes just the shape in general , i like the Mk 2.5 long clear len's , it would have looked better if it had blended better from the roof line, just my opinion , but i'm totally happy with the car.

Damn, that looks soooo good! Nice and clear guide too which will help me massively so ta for that mate. Btw, how did you put the 3rd brake light to stay on while you take the pic?! I've had to ask my sister to hit the brake light for me so I can then see what it looks like from behind lol. (I recently purchased a clear 3rd brake light from European-parts.com)
