chin spoiler

Postby wonkey donkey » Mon May 25, 2009 8:28 pm

good day to you all
I have recently bought one of those chin spoilers for my MK1 but it isn't the same one that was supposed to be originally attached. Instead i seem to have ordered one that has more "sticking out". I am now unsure if i want to fit it. Who else has bought the Mk1 Front Bumper Lip Spoiler By Garage Vary from mx5 parts? can you post pictures so i can see how it looks?
thank you

I think the colour of the car makes a lot of difference to how a GV lip looks, and IMHO its one of those mods that needs other supporting mods to be done to make it look any good (alloys etc.)

Anyway here goes. Sorry this first one is a little big, but its just so pretty.

Thank you for the images. I agree the colour and the extent of mods make a difference. My car is fairly standard so i think this won't suit, in fact i am putting a set of original minilite style wheels back on at the mo.
I tried propping the spoiler against my own car and taking some shots to see. I hadn't realised it was so different when i bought it and have been humming and hawing since October. Thank you very much for taking the time.

This is the fibre glass lip, I would advise spending a little more to get the plastic one, much better and easier to fit.

I am about to fit the number plate. :wink:

I will I will
Put my hand in my pocket and stop being a cheap skate. But i reckon I'll leave it black so if/when i scrap it on the drive it won't look so bad so quickly..... Anyone fancy an unused huge lip of a spoiler??
