    I've been thinking about fitting a boot spoiler to my A4 S-Line and wondering what you lot have on your A4's?

    I would like to keep it OEM, Im not into fitting something that makes my car look like a scooby wannabe :no:


    Any ideas, pictures of yours, links etc would be great.

    Im not being lazy, I have searched but just get the cheap ebay ones coming back.

    Hi JDM82,

    If you've got the S-Line, havent you already got a lip on the boot?

    If so you will find that many of the spoilers are made to fit on the flat boot (Non S-Line) unless you want to get a bolt on (scooby) looking spoiler.

    I saw an A4 B6 with one of these on last week with an ugly body kit and it looked shocking.

    Post some pics of what you go for, would like to see a different S-Line spoiler work well!

    Personally, I'd leave well alone. Like Einonsy says, you're going to have difficulty finding a spoiler that successfully fits over the lip, unless it's of the briefcase handle type, which will look horrible.

    Get yourself to Asda, or any other supermarket of choice, find trolley, remove handle, return home and fit handle to boot lid and voila! If you do not want to go down this road, leave boot alone.....well alone!:whistle2:

    sure I've seen the DTM fitted to an s-line that didn't look too bad...

    personally, I'm after a decent sutble rear roof spoiler, but not those daft curved lip type ones on ebay...

    DTM is the only way to go. And its made for an S-Line boot so its perfect fit (unlike mine being an SE theres a slight gap).

    When i got my S Line recently it came with one on it and it doesn't look out of place at all. No idea what make it is, but it seems to have a Hofele rear exhaust surround, so it might be by them as they do also make a lip spoiler.

    DTM has got the SE boot lid
    the DTM spoiler was never made oem to fit the s-line it can be made to fit tho
    or the rs4 1 can be made to fit the s-line

    I recall seeing threads about this on AZ and the moral was that the S-Line spoilers were an arse to fit. I'd stay clear.

    Thought the Rs4 was part of the boot lid though, so how can your spoiler be OEM?

    Also the other one isn't holefe, not sure what it is. ..

    No idea what model mine is then, but it's definitely on an S Line boot lid and it looks like a quality job.

    You definitely have an sline, and looks good I think that spoiler fits really well understated but adds nice limes to the rear end imo, oh and I really want your wheels. :)

    Haven't got any more pics at work but will take some this weekend. It's only a small lip, certainly not an RS4 style.

    looks ideal, if in doubt check out the V5 document and google the previous owner, that's how I confirmed all the mods done on mine, as Audi didn't know :)

    Know you're probably not that bothered with the hassle, but us folk would certainly be appreciative...:friends:

    Well there you go! I'm surprised something like that would look so good actually, the paint match is perfect and it feels like a solid item. Not sure i'd have wanted to do it myself tho, there's quite a curve on the boot and i'd more than likely have arsed it up.

    No the DTM definately has an S-Line boot lid. 100%. I have a DTM spoiler and an SE boot and there is a gap. Seen genuine DTMs and they sit much higher and with no gaps. It is the other way round. Perfect fit for the S-Line, can be made to fit the SE.
