    Hi

    Will an S3 spoiler fit an A3 1.8 Sport 2001?

    Cheers

    I would have thought so, there doesn't seem to be any difference in the tailgates

    And another yes from me. Tail gates are the same so it should fit no problem.

    Just hope it's not like the Mk3 Golf spoilers - they never go back on right once they've been taken off.

    That is a bloody bargain!!! paid double that for mine!!! and still needed spraying.

    FYI: A3 spoilers from the dealer are £155. S3 Spoilers are close to £200.

    What did you use to bond the spoiler on? I have been told Sykaflex can do the job - but i wont come off without damaging the paint?

    can anyone help?
