...<< Golf and GTI Owners: Show us your Rear Spoilers!!! >>...

Seeing as the 337 front lip's price has gone well up into the 300$ range, maybe I should get a rear spoiler instead. Those of you who have roof spoilers, please share how you like them, how they change the car's appearence, and how the painting and installation process was. I dont want a mod that is a hassle to get on the car, so please tell if it was an easy process.... if you guys hae any tips on how to install without hurting the car but ensuring that the part doesnt fall off, please tell as well.
Thanks in advance and as usual,
s for everyone!

btw, the two main spoilers i am considering are freedom design and the 337 votex. anything is welcome though, but it seems that those two are inexpensive and light... i dont want something too bulky.

Nope. That's why I bought it

Bought here on Vortex. It's an Audi TT antenna. About $25.00 shipped.

I dont have a wing, because they cost too damn much...

Just for clarification,
Does the Freedom Design spoiler hit the stock antenna.
If it does, so what? It seems springy enough... Will it damage the antenna or spoiler?

Thanks

Kind of like bending a paper clip back and forth. Eventually it will damage it but not until a few thousand bends back and forth. You just have to be aware of it when you open the hatch.
The freedom design rear top wing will hit EVERY antenna,
except the JOM 3-1/2" billet looking one.
I just got it last week and when my rear hatch is all the way up with FD spoiler, there is about 1/8" clearance!
I had an S2000 antenna before and it bent it whenever the hatch was up but not that bad. I just didn't feel like dealing with it anymore.
The reception with my new JOM antenna is a little less than before but only when I get away from the area.
