    Hi
    Just received my spoiler that ordered of eBay. Had a quick fit to see what it would look like before I sent it off to get painted.
    What do you guys think.

    Looks nice, I have one on mine - Be careful not to catch it on anything other wise it will just crack ever so easily....

    LOL I know, sounds crazy but I only asked because there was another post where the guy used nails to secure it because their so easy to come off.

    I would be slightly worrid if you used nails on anything on your car :/

    I used double sided tape (Used for instaling UPVC window units to frames) and some Silicone/Tiger seal equivelant.

    Once i stuck it up and the tape held, i also applied some gaffer tape to pull the corners in tight.

    Let us know how it goes,

    Is it not the votex spoiler for the 2005+ car with the big grill?

    Personally I would have bought an S-Line front bumper but good to see the votex (if it is) spoilers still being used! My old A3 twin grill still has the spoiler on!

    I was looking for an S-line bumper for quite some time but decent ones seem to be going for too much.

    Yeh I went to a few places managed to get a facelift rear bumper for cheap but S-line front bumpers were still to much for my liking. Thought I may swell save up a bit longer and go for the s3 look.

    Just on another note, does anybody know of any exhaust tips that will fit my a3. The problem I have is Iv got the 1.9TDI which has the dual exhausts that point downwards.
