    Just recieved my new roof spoiler from the dealer and had a quote of £85 for spraying and bonding to the car!

    Sounds good to me and the guy who is going to do it is superb!

    Also hopefully I am going to fit my tailpipes tomorrow so the backend will be pretty much sorted.

    I'll take some pics if anyone is interested?

    Dicky,

    can you give us part numbers for s-line spoiler, or is it Votek (both the same)?
    What about the tailpipes? Are you buying what?

    Sorry for all questions, but seems to be pretty the first things to do to a tdi sport, like mine /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    The spoiler was purchased from the dealer and its part number is 8P0 071 640 9AX

    The Tailpipes were also from the dealer and I believe the part number is ZGB 8P0 071 902

    Hope this helps

    Are those tailpipes default ones in gasoline cars, or a optional part for diesel?

    I think the 3.2 and 2.0t get them by default. Optional on all others.

    well after no luck with the front spoiler i was supposed to be getting,i enquired at the local dealer,about discounts on one,at which point he laughed his head off,and said no chance,so£332 it is then,

    needless to say i went away with my tail between my legs.
