My car is slowly coming along (see sig) with a trip to see Mr Tinter pencilled in for after christmas [:)] plus it will be lowered in the new year [:)] [:)]

Now looking at subtle with a small s options for the exterior... any suggestions (with pics?)

I'm thinking Hofele spoiler and possibly colour matching the lower valances? Anyone done that? Not sure how it would look though?

PS the thin Hofele boot spoiler is no longer available, not sure why but Hofele have stopped making them :(

NOOOOOOO!!!! The one I'm thinking of has a bit of an overhang rearwards but not much height - is that the Hofele?

cheers for the input. moving away from spoilers... any suggestions for the valances? I've seen the projekt two kit but its prohibitively expensive - what do you think on colour matching the lower strips? viable? cack? 4mo bits instead? suggestions?

Its nice to get the 4mo valance and smooth and spray it but to smooth it isnt that cheap! sometimes easier to get a primed aftermarket valance and get it sprayed up

IMO the GLI front/rear valances are in a class of their own, when it comes to OEM valances:

The Hofele rear spoiler looks great, but IMO wasn't good quality. I bought one and sold it on, it was flimsy plastic and due to it being hollow, only a bodyshop would be able to fit it to the car properly.

02 Bora - you are a legend mate thanks for the pics!!

Must admit I'm preferring the 4mo front to to the GLi front - a little less busy for me, but the rear GLi one is better imo. Decisions decisions!

Thanks for the feedback on the Hofele spoiler too. I'm also liking very much the Zender type look for the rear, kinda like this

or this

though on the second one it looks two piece and not very well done. I like the overhang to the rear.

[edit] actually on close inspection both of those look like two piece spoilers [}:)] but I really like the shape. Anyone know of anything similar?

O2 Bora SE,

Move on mate, you have a Passat now!!

Hornetrider,

Not too sure about that Zender spoiler mate, I agree with O2 Bora SE, the GLI valances look the best but maybe CraigV will sort you out with a good price for his 4mo bits?

Lol, I just like to share my knowledge to help others if possible.

There is a Votex rear lip spoiler worth considering, if you like the zender style:
