    Hi people

    Recently I purchased an A3 8P and this is my first Audi. I am planning to make my car looks like S line model and the first thing I am going to do is add on the s-line spoiler. I bough a replica S3 spoiler from eBay for £90 included shipping. However when I bring the spoiler to the body shop today,the guy just told me. This is a tough job as the spoiler is not bolt on,I may have to use glue to stick it on.....

    I wonder if you guy have done the same or you have another way to put the spoiler on?This question maybe stupid but please understand that I am a newbie :)))Any help will be much appreciated.

    Thank you

    Just bond it with Sikaflex or Tiger Seal. Easy job. If your bodyshop are saying this is a tough job I wouldn't be trusting them with painting it, they sound lame!

    Go to a different body shop!!

    easy job, tell them to use something like sikaflex or tigerseal. Once bonded and dry the spoiler will not come of. You will need to use masking tape to hold down the ends until the adhesive has cured.

    But if you have taken it to a half decent body shop, they should know all this already.

    Lol Tim, you read my thoughts, you must have posted just as I did! Haha

    I would defo use a different body shop if they say this is a tough job, even my 14 month old boy could probably do it.

    Any of you guys know if a s line 3 door spoiler will be a straight fit onto a 5 door sport back?

    I've always thought the eBay spoilers look really hit-and-miss. Can anyone vouch for any reputable sellers on eBay with decent quality S-line replicas?

    I recently did this mod on my car, was lucky enough to source a genuine s3 spoiler with brake light. I also took the chance of drilling my tailgate and bonding it instead of removing the lugs from the spoiler. had perfect results and can honestly say that i may of gone slightly overboard with the bonding but on the up side the spoiler will never come off. just hope i never have the need to remove it for any reason.
