    You just get it bonded on mate, On top of your original part.


    Is it just me or is your rear drivers side wheel at a very strange angle?:confused:

    nothing needs to come off, it just bonds straight onto the tailgate.

    wheel is at a funny angle after a rear end smash a couple of years ago. works well on right handers though:yes:

    Looks nice that, no one seems to get splitters smoothed in on this forum, i think it would look miles better smoothed in!

    Yea, I suppose its easier to get it sprayed off the car and fitted rather than fitting filling and spraying in situ...

    Ordered that as well now :cool:

    The spoiler you have ordered is not the genuine votex one, hopefully it will look and fit ok. I have heard of some bad ones on ebay not looking very good. I would have gone for the genuine one

    Dont you think you should get that looked at, surely it cant be doing your tyres any good and it cant be safe to drive.



    before i fitted the sline bumper to my old A3 i fitted a votex splitter and smoothed it

    The wheels fine Matt, just a funny camera angle and my warped sense of humour :yes:

    the spoiler is polyurethane and not the usual GRP so hopefully it will be ok. If not i will sell it on and get the proper thing.

    Cheers ..

    I too have heard that some ebay ones are of poorer quality. I hope yours ok though.

    I am going to be gettin a genuine one after having a couple of dodgy ebay ones that were very poor fits, better to just go genuine and be safe than sorry
