    Experience with this roof spoiler

    Hi,

    Does anybody have some experience with this roof spoiler or the seller, it's not an exact replica of the s-line,but the seller says the shapes are the same and instead the breaklight is integrated in the spoiler, a part is cut out for it.

    Guys,
    Just about to ask the same.
    It is available on ebay uk.

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...tab%3DWatching

    Sent to PM to the seller and he stated it bonds on top of the current tailgate with the brake light shining through the gap but as you guys ask, any feedback.

    Stafford audi are doing these ones,

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...tab%3DWatching

    not exact, for around 200 inc delivery so if these fit well then it could be good.

    cheers

    To get the best - you need an ABS one or a OEM one.

    They wear better an withstand stone chips/bumps/knocks better

    How much is an S3 SB spoiler from dealer?

    EDIT:Didnt see the last post untill now but the oem would be better imo.
    Audi A3 S-Line DSG - sold
    Golf Mk4 Autograph - sold
    Currently Vtec'in around in an Accord Type R :P

    For Sale: ST3 Remap Console - PM Me :P

    I'm picking up a 2nd hand oem one in a couple of days. I don't really want to drill holes to attach it though. Can it just be glued on ?

    yes is can be 'glued' on, though since its been bonded on before you will need to make sure all the old bonding material is completely removed.

    That's the OEM one... -If anyone's truly interested, I have one for sale, new-in-box, primered, and I think that I could ship it anywhere in the UK for not much more than HALF that...

    If anyone's interested, let me get it weighed at the post office for a shipping quote.

    why don't we group buy an OEM one from maybe Stafford Audi or Stoke Audi?

    it looks like there is enough interest and if they can do an agreeable price, OEM would be much better.

    I would like to know what the difference is between the Votex en the S-line. I read I lot about the S-line won't fit a non-Sline car, so I'm looking for an good alternative.

    I'm pretty sure an s-line spoiler will fit non s-line. It's not like the shape of the cars different. Just exterior, interior and suspension are i believe. So i'm pretty sure they will fit. But i'm wrong sure some one with a lot more experienceand knowledgee will correct me.

    Hope i was able to help

    Thanks

    I think if it won't fit, it will be because of the breaklight.
    The mounting holes can be drilled or removed.

    I think the S-line 'spoiler' is part of the boot itself as apposed to being an add on like the votex one.... it's very hard to tell the difference between them, there's really not much in it.... although when I see a votex one, it seems to be slightly more square with a slight raised kink at each either end compared to the S-line one.

    BTW mate, did you see the group buy feeler thread re- the oem one?

    I was at the local dealer this weekend and they couldn't find the part number for the S-line spoiler, so if you are right that would explain it.

    Thanks for that RS. Never knew that i've seen the group buy where would you be looking to go? Would it be the Votex spoiler on the group buy?

    Thanks

    will let you know, just ordered new tailgate & spoiler for mine today. Somebody reversed into it & have just paid me as they wanted to avoid insurance (I dont sanction this but I know the guy really well).

    My understanding is the votex bonds straight on to your tailgate & has slightly squarer edges. The S-line one goes with the s-line tailegate - the spoiler having bolts & tailgate having holes& has slightly rounder edges.

    Are you sure about the s-line spoiler not fitting (as I'm getting one tmrw!)..

    Audi do it as an official part. Are we sure the brake lights are different ? If so I'll get the copy off ebay. Do you think the official one they sell is the vortex one ?

    I'm fairly sure the S-line will fit physically though I can't confirm yet as to if it will have bolts you will need to cut off. It is as you say more likely the vortex one they are supplying, the visual differences are very minimal and it bonds straight on.

    The only two that are really different are the 3 & 5 doors.

    Cheers, I think it's worth going for the ebay copy then tbh as it's less hassle to fit & guaranteed to fit on without having to hack bits off, just glue straight on & will work with the brake light.

    hi

    the one we are selling is a votex part, to fit it you remove the high level brake light, bond the spoiler to the tailgate with the bonding kit, then refit the brake light to the spoiler.
    there is already a cut out in the spoiler to feed the wires through, and the brake light fits flush into this. just like the s-line spoiler.
    you do not fit this over the brakelight.

    Do you think that it is possible to fit the S-line spoiler when you cut off the lugs and then just bond it on?

    Can you take some pics?

    Thanks

    kinda hard to show the shape but this will give you the idea. You can see the studs that poke through the holes on the tailgate.

    At the standard one, the hole is on top of it, on this one it is only to slide in the breaklight, or do I see this wrong?

    Thanks for info on the thread guys, seems to me that unless you really wish to change the tailgate the votex is the way to go, plus Dave (stoke audi) has explained the brake light fitting.

    Assume removing the brake light is just a case of popping the side clips out and also the wires are long enough? (unlike the front end mod where you need new lights and wires) Missed a trick there Audi!!!

    Ball park what are you guys paying for spraying and bonding ?

    Any local Manchester ones recommended?

    as opposed to the s-line spoiler, could the s3 spoiler not be fitted or does this have the 2 lugs sticking out of it too thus creating the same problem?

    i'm guessing the s-line & S3 spoiler are theam part. TBH, the votex is the way to go. I only went the other route as somebody had bashed my tailgate anyhow so I needed a new on.

    I accidentely ordered a S-line spoiler insteed of a Vorex for my sportback, it has three mounting points, you have to cut off the outer two, but the one in the middle may stay on.
    Then just glue it on, just done it today, but fits very well.

    It came with a new breaklight, and sealings for over the old breaklight-gap and for the holes of the original S-line mounting.

    Sorry to drag this thread up, but can someone clarify the part number for the Votex stick-on spoiler please, the one as described by Stoke Audi. And (I assume) in this link here;

    http://www.stokeaudi-parts.co.uk/pro...f-Spoiler.html

    Described as a bond-on spoiler whereby the high level brake light is removed from the boot itself and fitted onto the new spoiler.



    From what I can see, the part numbermentioned in this thread, 8P386094 GRU, is the S-Line spoiler with the lugs? On the 3-door A3 this sits OVER the existing high level brake light?

    Hi,
    Again sorry to bump but I have finally done the mod.
    Bougth one of ebay for 75, check the feedback, (cant link cos I am work for ebay) but its UK based.

    Didn't like the Vortex brake light position, the Sline lug cut option was too expensive.

    So I got it painted and fitted for 150 all in, HANSTONS of ALtrincham, great job, good guys, a few Auid buffs there too.






    [/IMG]
    I have linked some pics (imageshack us first time so hope they work!!)

    Hope this helps others with what was a good choice in the end!

    LOL, I know mate, I cant quite get the imageshack thing to work..........

    Will have another go at editing, tried four times to get them from imageshack in the correct size to the forum, I give up.

    Basically its looks just like the Sline one!

    Any help on the pics would be greatly appreciated....
