    Comes complete in primer ready for painting with fitting instructions.
    The Spoiler is bonded to the car using
    You just get it bonded on mate, On top of your original part.


    Is it just me or is your rear drivers side wheel at a very strange angle?

    nothing needs to come off, it just bonds straight onto the tailgate.

    wheel is at a funny angle after a rear end smash a couple of years ago. works well on right handers though

    Looks nice that, no one seems to get splitters smoothed in on this forum, i think it would look miles better smoothed in!

    Yea, I suppose its easier to get it sprayed off the car and fitted rather than fitting filling and spraying in situ...

    Ordered that as well now

    The spoiler you have ordered is not the genuine votex one, hopefully it will look and fit ok. I have heard of some bad ones on ebay not looking very good. I would have gone for the genuine one

    Dont you think you should get that looked at, surely it cant be doing your tyres any good and it cant be safe to drive.

    The wheels fine Matt, just a funny camera angle and my warped sense of humour

    the spoiler is polyurethane and not the usual GRP so hopefully it will be ok. If not i will sell it on and get the proper thing.

    Cheers ..
