The spoiler on a Corrado is it efficient at creating a down draft????? Or is it there just for show??? I read some of the original adds for the corrado and VW argued how important a spoiler is in racing... Why would you need a down draft at 35mph??? Has someone found a way to make the spoiler lift at say 70mph when it would make more sense to activate it?????

Re: The spoiler on a Corrado??? (B(C)orrado)

VW themselves don't seem to be able to make up their minds when the spoiler should lift. On my first Corrado (16V '90), the spoiler raised at 45mph and on my current one (VR6 '95) it goes up at 65mph.
That's in the UK, though. In Germany, I'm told they go up at 70mph.

Re: The spoiler on a Corrado??? (Storm Warning)

My C is imported from Germany, my wing goes up at 120km/h, that is around 70mph i think.
The wing on cars sold in Sweden goes up at 70km/h

if you read old Vw literature, the active rear spoiler imprves rear downforce by 64% at speeds above 75MPH.

Does it really matter??? It has to be the coolest feature ever, on any car hands down...
