    I had one of the cheapo rubber ones off eBay when I first got my S4 and it looked good.

    Took it off to fit an E36 Compact spoiler about a year ago, but never got round to fitting it when I realised how much fannying about it involved.

    Hi there.....I love my A6 and can be pretty anal about how it looks and keeping it clean etc. I wanted a rear bootlid spoiler but Audi was asking around £300 supplied / painted n fitted......A lot I thought for what it was.

    I checked Ebay and found a seller from Taiwan who sold me the exact same spoiler ( painted to match my car - perfect match, even the guys at Audi say so ) and delivered to my front door all for under £50...
    Well chuffed..
    I'm gonna post up this link for you....I do not know if this is the same guy as it was a while ago although it looks the same.

    ebay_audi_spoiler

    comes with 3m tape on and you fit yourself....takes around 10 - 15 mins.
    Mines been on now for around a year and a half with zero problems.


    Good luck with whatever you decide to do

    Nice one 205man
    Funnily enough I was actually in with a customer today and we ended up talking in the car park. He's recently bought a 1 year old A6 2.0 tdi for his wife and commented on the spoiler. Sumthin he wanted to do but dint wanna pay £300 notes for.
    I put him in the same direction. I know though how sometimes these things can seem daunting....will it work, won't it etc etc
    I figured for £50 I'd find out....lol

    I bought a Carbon firbre M3 clone in the right shape and style to fit a B5 years ago delivered for around £50 IIRC, still on there now. All i have had to do is give it an extra coat of lacquer as it was looking weathered

    I got one of the german ebay lip spoliers. Think it was about £30-£40 delivered, already sprayed but I've had it smoothed into the bootlid now though.

    Smoothed, eh!? How do you smooth it to the boot lid? I had thought of this, but wouldn't know how to go about it. Is it a simple job, or one for a body shop?:drool:

    I do like the M3-style lips, but not keen on the smoothed version. I like the lip looking seperate from the rest of the trunk.

    This guy bought a Rieger rear spoiler and reshaped it and blended in to give it a CSL look

    Oooooh, I like the BMW Compact spoiler... there's a bit more shape to it than the one I have. Did you get it direct from a dealer...? If so, how much was it?

    Cheers,

    Giles

    You have to do quite a bit to the spoiler to make it fit as its made from a sort of plastic resin so you have to cut it and heat it to make it fit, not easy job.

    I bought mine off ebay after hunting for one for months.

    I followed the masses. Everything else I found (including the nornal Audi fit spoiler) was a bit OTT for my liking.

    Old pic, but not got round to washing the car for about amonth and a half :(
