That’s definitely the Maxton one. Been looking at it for a while. Funny how none of them quite sit right up to the edge of the spoiler at each side. That does bug me.

It's certainly much better value than the VW one! But yes, no idea why it stops short at each side, that would put me off completely unless it was colour coded or on a black car. It's like it doesn't fit properly  :rolleyes:

I have the SRS spoiler which is similar to the performance pack one.  It comes unpainted which is the biggest difference, the VW one is expensive but it is a very well produced item I'm sure.

Aside from the aftermarket ones, some of which look better to my eyes than others (the Oettinger a bit OTT for me) it’s amazing that VW have so many different options suddenly available for a car in its twilight, assuming the TCR and R PP spoilers are indeed different.

Though its been mentioned has anyone specced the factory fitted Oetinger spoiler? (photos)

Have looked hard at the AMG A35 but the Aerodynamic rear wing/spoiler is too much for me, as think the Oetinger may fall somewhere in between and just give my next R a little more rear presence - so very tempted to option next month when order next changeover.

I think they probably are different. However, on the R forum they’ve discovered that the part numbers are apparently the same. This means that they’re either the same part, the TCR spoiler from the concept is now different or that Vw have messed up. Hmmmmm

I had it retro fitted.
