    As subject I finally got around to removing the rear wiper.

    I am happy with and think it improves the smooth lines of the car.

    What do you guys think though?

    Lookin smoooooooooooooooooooooooth mate /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    If it was mine; I'd be 99% certain that spoiler won't be going on now... If you look at the car as a whole in the pics (or lets say; centre your view on the rear window but don't hold the focus) - it looks clean, tidy, and uniform. I really think if you put the spoiler on now it'd be a step backwards.

    I dunno what you feel though?....

    Yeah as you say I am almost certain that I am not going to fit the spoiler now as I think my initial thoughts of it ruining the smooth lines will come true.

    I was wondering how long it would be before you noticed.

    Can't remember how much I paid for it, but if you interested how's about £5 at Audi Driver International?

    It does look smoother. However is it still okay to see out of the back of? Only ask as the big arse on the S3 always kicks up the most amount of sh!t onto the rearscreen that after a few miles in wet dreary weather you can't see for buggery.

    Yeah it gets a bit dirty, but you can still see. I suppose that's what the sides mirrors are for though? LOL

    Also I suppose if it gets too dirty I will have to stop and wipe it /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Ive got no rear wiper on mine as it broke a few monthes back so i took it off completly. It does look better without it IMO and it got through the MOT fine but as mentioned, it doesn`t provide the best visability in crap weather.
