... remove them without having to lift the car, use tools that are not easily available or break something?<p>I know there's a screw on each end of the spoiler and a plastic clip that's somehow attached to the bumper cover. That's the one that worries me.<p>This is like the 4th time (I lost count) I pull one of these suckers off. I've had it! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

It's God's way of telling you the factory body kit is ugly. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">

That's just wrong.<br>It's not the spoilers, for majority of mishaps, it's a combination of crap American roads and/or inattentive driving.. which is intself very American as well. <p>My R doesn't have the kit but I'm moving to Germany shortly and the car is in the shop getting a Sport kit right now. I wouldn't have one here in the states because I drive too fast for the sheit roads but there it will be fine.<p><br>

I agree, I look the look of the kit but being in industrial real estate I do not think that it would last very long.

poop roads? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><br>believe me man, you have no idea what a ****ty road even means if haven't been to turkey. let me put it this way, i have 215/55/16 tyres and stock wheels on my T5 because if i change to lets say 235/45/17 or 35/18, i'll most definitely ruin my wheels + tyres + even car.... the only place to drive normally is the autobahn. other than that, it's like a nightmare. <br>
