Could the same principles applied here be done to black exterior plastics that you typically see on lower spec model cars? Would be an easy way to colour match and give a more up market look.

I’m going to look into that myself. The main problem I can see is that normally the black plastics are textured. I’m guessing you’d need to do a lot more sanding first and then build it with filler primer.

Can you measure the length of the spoiler? I don't have an Audi A4 but I'm curious if it would fit OK on my car.

Thanks. I've actually contacted the seller asking the same question and they've said they can custom make any length, which is great. I have a Renault Megane RS 250 in case you were wondering!

It seems to be about 42 inches. It’s a little hard to measure because it’s curved on the car.

Torque Steer okay will try the sandpaper thanks

Thanks :). You can always try a liquid compound but it isn’t as harsh as the sandpaper so it may not remove it. Machine polish might yield decent results too. Polish is just a micro abrasive and is essentially a finer version of sandpaper in a way. If you’re worried about causing damage, the 5000 grit is perfectly safe on the paint.

this looks real nice i actually ment i followed your other vid about the d badge and was going to buy the spoiler but then noticed the boot lip lol is there another was to get the print of the letters off instead of sandpaper?

Looks great! How did it turn out on the A5? I'd like to get one for mine!

Talked to the guy. He said he didn’t spend as much time prepping it as he should. Not sure if he used plastic primer too. Apparently it fell off the bootlid when he was installing it and the paint cracked when it bent. I’d say doing it on a hot day when the paint is warmer would be wise.

Pretty well. Good enough for me to want to buy one. Although the paint cracked a little bit on the A5 but I’m not too sure how he prepared and installed his.

It only cost me about £10 to paint it. I had the primer and clear coat anyway. Plus, I need some colour coded paint for some other parts of the car.

Nice ! I purchased the exact same spoiler about 6 months ago for my 2007 A4 and it is still very solid. My car is black and the color match was already perfect so I did not repaint it as you did. After 6 months I am still very happy with that lip and the missing 0.5 to 1 cm for a exact fit are not to apparent.

That’s great to hear. I must admit, I haven’t noticed the gap on the sides since fitting it.

I can't tell if you're scouse or not. Also the spoiler looks nice. Keep up the good videos!

Vor 6 Monate

Torque Steer

Yeah, I'm scouse. I don't have the strongest of accents. It probably reduces performance if anything. I'd imagine it would create a little but more drag but add no downforce. I did it purely as a cosmetic upgrade.

Nice work. Not sure what sealant/wax/coating you have on the paint but for silver it looks mad good! :)

I've been quite impressed how well it came up considering how dull it was when I got it. I don't think it had been cleaned in 10 years. Might have saved the paint from swirls if anything though.

Sealants do tend to work best on Silver, although topped with a coat of wax it gets even better. I loved Zaino Z5 Pro and Z2 Pro on silver, 3 coats of each - it looked dripping wet.

Thanks :) I'm using Auto Finesse Tough Coat after giving it a 3 stage decontamination. The AF Fusion Wax on my Fiesta looks even better. I can't wait to try it on the A4.

I'm hoping to at some point in the future. I've got 4 good matching tyres on them at the moment so I kind of want to wear them down first. So in the meantime, I'm probably going to drop it by 30mm. Hopefully it should still be okay with the factory shocks. Then I'll probably go up to 17 inch wheels (16 inch at the moment) as I think 18 inch will impact ride quality too much. I have just spaced the rears out by 15mm (I had some lying around from my last A4) which has filled the rear out a bit.

Acrylic polyurethane paint is basically coloured plastic anyway..

Yeah, it shouldn't be a problem. I used plastic primer. Anyway, normal car bumpers are made of plastic and paint stick to them just fine. Once it's on the car, it shouldn't bend much at all.
