large spoiler problem

on the 156 boot lid i have the large spoiler from alfa but this hits the back screen, im sure alfa would have been aware OF THE ISSUE but i think my boot may have been changed and spoiler added later. i was thinking may be the struts are shorter that the boot lids without spoilers.

They are different, stronger struts with metal ends on the boots with spoilers .. they might be shorter .. never compared. I've got the wing and it's never hit the rear screen.

I don't think it's possible to fit it too far forward on the boot lid due to the shape.

What he said.
My spoiler stops an inch or two away from the screen. I'm fairly sure the uprated struts fitted along with the spoiler were indeed shorter.
