    Default Rear Spoiler Query

    I may be getting a S3 380 VRX to do a little work to, and it has the rear tail lamps with a lip spoiler on the bootlid.

    I will be wanting the clear tail lamps and the matching spoiler naturally.

    Before I go ahead and order parts, will the holes for the factory lip spoiler support the spolier that integrates with the tail lamps or do I have to get another bootlid?

    The car will be resprayed so colour isn't a hurdle really if I have to change the panels.

    Turns out, the pressings are different but modification is doable.

    The person who fitted the original spoiler cocked it up a bit for alignment but its sorted now.

    You can fit a spoiler but there must be 8 holes drilled and sealed specifically.

    that is no S3 vrx spoiler either.....
    S3 are the bigger one mounted on top of the boot.

    I am sure that any state will struggle to put on an equivalent to what MMX was, it was awesome both in the aspect of events and the social aspect after cruises,

    Youíre correct. The car is a parts special. Came with the rubbish spoiler, and the useless clock instead of the better screen, but had leather seats etc etc. Itís a puzzle.

    Are you sure it's a vrx and not a mock up?
