    Those pictures are deceptive because that s-line spoiler is not fitted over the original tailgate lip like the votex, its been fitted instead of the tailgate lip at the factory....and i dont think that is a votex either come to that ! looks like the cheap e-bay copy, its to thick at the front and a terrible fit as well.

    Here you go if you need more from different angles let me know. Hope these help. Also I can understand people wanting to buy the replica ones because there cheap. But remember you have an audi so parts are going to be expensive. And who ever bought a replica one and fitted it please upload a photo to photobucket and then here. As Ive never seen one fit correct.

    Nice one mate, thanks for that!!
    Looking good too.

    I just need the same sort of close up of an s-line spoiler now.

    Think I might go votex after seeing your pics though, and save a bit a dough.

    Cheers.

    Ben your car looks sweet, i still prefer the s line spoiler :yum:

    ABT spoiler looks nice but you need to see more pics of the spoiler close up and from different angles.

    Votex one looks **** tbh on the lines of the 8P, to angular for my liking & that abt one, looks chunky from that angle & certainly way overpriced.

    Also the ones of ebay GARY (w4nkstain) will look ok at 1st then the primer, paint & lacquer gets sucked in, starts to look absolutely *****, wish you luck as so far I've had none.

    The fake one is taken from a mould made from the Votex, i had them both and they were identicle except the fake had a thicker leading edge and weighed 3x as much !!

    that's a fair point about the price but ABT products are manufactured to the same standard as Audi OEM parts and I don't know about you but I like to have something different to everyone else without compromising quality. If anyone on here is interested I'll do it for the special forum price of £200 delivered.

    I've read through about 6 different threads on spoilers but i'm still a little confused! I've got an A3 sport - if i buy an S3 spoiler does it just fit over my tailgate and use my existing brake light?

    Yes it does fit straight on but you will have to cut the lugs off and then bond it on. Mine is in the bodyshop so will be fitted next week! cant wait!
