Rear Window Spoiler
« on: August 21, 2003, 08:49:05 PM »
I am looking for a source to obtain a rear widow spoiler from for my 2003 B5.5 sedan.  I really want the one that goes above the rear window, but I have not been able to locate one.

Anyone know where to get one?

Alan's spoiler is a rear lid spoiler, I don't believe he has a window diffuser.  I only know of those for the wagons, but IIRC someone out there has one on a sedan, but I can't remember who.

I thought originally Alan had it up above the window...then decided to move it down.  I think it is the M3 or M5 spoiler.  I know Hofele Design is coming out with one.  The have one for the Jetta, just not the Passat yet.  You can see the jetta one by going to www.autobahnx.com and click on VW and see what options they have for all the VW's.  They don't have it broken down by cars, but you can scroll throught the 4 pages and see what is available.  I personally think Hofele makes great products, I had the deck lid diffuser for mine, and Mike has it on his.  Simple design, looks great.

If you like the looks of this spoiler, I've seen it (or one that looks exactly like it) mounted at the top of the rear window/roof area. I think it's the only spoiler I'd consider getting - smooth and simple.

It looks good 8)

I may even put it on the back like you have it, I will just have to see.  Where did you get it and how much did it cost?

www.dtmautohaus.com

Also has a few types of them.  Their website has "issues," but here is a pic of the one for the Jetta:

Yup, my trunk lid lip spoiler was made originally to be used as a rear window diffuser (from Wetworks).  I placed it on the rear window to see how it looked and even standing close it was hard to see it and didn't do anything to the look of the car (it's less than 2" deep and the lip didn't protrude much).

I then placed it on the trunk lid and thought it looks much better (it really complements the rear end of the B5.5), eventhough I don't like rear spoilers.  The look is subtle and tasteful.
BTW, the Wetworks rear lip spoiler/diffuser is essentially a BMW M3/M5 rear spoiler that has been shortened to fit our cars.  They offer either a rear diffuser (that goes above the rear window) or a trunklid spoiler.  The only difference between the two is that the rear diffuser is about 1/2" shorter in length.

I'm thinking I'll eventually paint the roof a deep gloss black, similar to the Mercedes with the dual or panorama roof or the Porsche 911 Targa.  It really ties the front of the car with the rear and accentuates the arching roofline -- but I'll wait until I get my rear bumper repainted (it's full of scractches and scrapes), which is probably never or until I get rear ended.

There was one floating around at www.dtmautohaus.com, but I just checked it and it was no more.

That was a bigger one than the small diffuser by Hofele, but I would post over at CB5 to see if anyone there can locate it.
