    you can always say that a crack or something appeared on the part that is covered by the new spoiler so to stop water getting in you just had to get a new one. otherwise you need a whole new tailgate! worth a shot lol

    that's not far off the reasoning last year when I bought an s-line front valance, s-line door mouldings and a new rear valance. I got a standard rear from QuattroJames at the time instead of splashing out on an s-line one and wish now i'd just gone the whole hog. the front valance was genuinely broken and the rear had a big notch out of it for the tow ball so I had a bit of valid reasoning. not so sure I'll get away with it 2 years running (unless I accidentally reverse into a moose!!! genius!!)
