The amazing spoiler thread
Hello all. I'm in the same boat as a few others at the moment, shopping for a spoiler. There are plenty of threads on here on the subject, but very few pictures to help us out. So, I thought I'd invite people to post photo's of their spoilers in here, making sure to tell us what spoiler it is, on 3drs and Sportbacks, to help people make the decision.
The age-old question
Anyone wanting a spoiler for their 8P A3 wonders what their options are, and after they've asked everyone on this forum, there are always two emerging options: The S-line/S3 spoiler, or the Votex spoiler. Don't bother with other spoilers, as they will invariably fit badly and/or struggle to hold onto their paint.
Which one for you?
Stoke Audi offer the Votex spoiler, which at this point in time can be bought for £140. It is bonded on with an adhesive, and fits over your standard brake like.
Stoke Audi also offer the S-line spoiler, coming in at £210, plus you need the brake light at £30 if you have a Sportback, plus self-adhesive tape.
So, is the S-line spoiler worth the additional £100+? That is the point of this thread. I hope that people will be kind enough to reply below with photo's of their spoilers to help everyone out from this day forward. The pic of pengjn's Votex spoiler has me worried that it might sit quite proud of the top of the roofline, and I'm really being won over by the smooth and sweeping lines of the S-line spoiler compared to the straight edge look of the Votex. Some shots showing the height step from the roofline back to the top of the spoiler would be helpful!
I'll start things off with a few photo's I've gathered from old threads on here.
