Yes it will fit, the R32 hatch spoiler is shorter than the Votex item with the cutout...

You will find that the R32 item is shorter by the length of the cutout on the Votex item...

Yes the R32 spoiler will fit without catching the aerial.

The Vortex spoilers are a little deeper and need the cutout to avoid contact with the aerial.

[EDIT] Beat me by 6seconds there Stu!!

Yes it will fit.

The votex spoiler has a cut out because it sticks out further than the R32 spoiler.

Thats not good , is it?, if you paid for an r32 one you should have a r32 one., anyone know the part number of the r32 one and the anni one, so i can check that i havnt been `duped`.

Albmx, I bought one of those too, only the other day!

Should be delivered in the next couple of days. It better be an R32 one[:(!].

Did yours come with the adhesive?

Whats the difference then? I thought that the R one and the Anni one had the same part number?

I have used EMS before and they were fine with me.

AFAIK EMS LTD is somehow linked to OEM Parts (http://www.oemparts.co.uk/). These are the people who provided the anniversary kits in the recent GB. It seemed a slight coincidence that when the GB was announced on here, a few days later there were full anni kits and bits of anni kits (including buy it now 'r32' spoilers for ?80) on ebay from EMS LTD (and they are both in Norwich, and the website and ebay photo of a yellow 337/anni were the same too....etc etc)

Without having a biitch, i reckon this stuff has been lying around in the warehouse for some time (anni kits and these spoilers were talking about) as my kit didnt come in any original packaging, covered in dust and crap, with parts of the primer rubbed off (costing me a small fortune at the bodyshop to get redone!)

I suppose when u pay rock bottom prices, this is what u gotta expect[V].

I'm still waiting for mine too. If it arrives and it's not an R32 one I'll be straight on the phone. False advertising etc.

Kinghoop, did you contact them to complain? After all the ad clearly states it's ready to fit and fully primed and brand new. Looks like all three counts are wrong from what you say.

Cheers, Jim
