    What does it do? Get to 62 quicker?


    Spoils the subtle look of the 8L A3/S3, IMHO

    I think they are even less than that, some people just have no sense of reality £45 is taking the mickey.

    depends how you fit it, it actually acts as a good detraction from the horrible overhang underneath the front bumper....thats how i justified it to myself, and this coming from someone that prefers OEM ;)

    I think they look spot on as well...

    I might buy one... £45 seems a Billy Bargain to me.

    Or I could take a photo of my arse and send it to him via email.

    Then get nicked. :busted_cop:

    I just emailed him asking to clarify wether they are the ones available for the seat leon cupra at £20 from the dealers or if they were carbon fibre or some other variation of the the original spoiler.

    Hoping for a reply soon.

    I think the logical reason behind the high price of this splitter is the fact it may come with pre drilled holes to screw it in with or maybe some screws. Worth it

    price still seems like a relative bargain compared to Australia. Due to freight costs, we organised a group-buy ex UK, and the landed cost here was still AU$140 or £85

    here's a pic of mine fitted

    lol they don't come with pre holes in them mate. They're the exact same ones you get from the Seat dealer.

    This is mine, you will notice the difference in fitting, the silver S3 has the overhang, i cut mine off which i think looks more OEM...each to heir own though, was a pain to get like that

    looks like a nice simple mod. im guessing fitting is fairly easy, is trimming required?

    I bought one from e bay sometime ago for £50.00 I never had it fitted I even drilled the hole in it and went to put it on and thought I'm about to drill holes in my car and thought i'm not doing this, Got an email from ebay a couple of weeks later saying to be aware of overpricing items for sale and it was the splitter, totally raging about as I through it out waste of money if you ask me if you can get them from the Seat dealer for £20 you might be better putting the money to a panel filter of recirc valve of something better a piece of plastic that will probably come off when you come to park near the edge of a curb!!!
