I've had a boot spoiler for about three years now, always intending to fit it to the twinspark but didn't bother when I decided I wanted a V6 one day.
Got the V6 but as you know there is a problem with the paint so decided to wait until respray time before fitting it...............but couldn't wait that long eek! also I've recently acquired the modifying bug (thanks a lot Henry!!!).
So, I've sprayed it Satin Black (bit like bumper trim....bit of a shine). Thought it would match the black alloys.
Have a look at the pictures and give me your honest opinion, does it look any good or shall I have it resprayed eventually with the rest of the car.
I like it. Looks good with the red (but then again I suggested it!).
It has a distinct "Motorsport" feel to it (or is that the big sticker you have saying that across the top of your front windscreen a la XR2! )
You have managed to mount it right on the edge of the boot which looks good. Can't wait to see where you have put the holes underneath! I know I had fun fitting mine (twice!)
I thgink 155's lok fantactic with a boot spoiler and the Silverstne type is the best of the 3 standards (not including the TiZ Zagato rear wing). The Standards are Silverstone, Sport Pack wrap round and early / Lester droopy corners style.
Henry (Number 10 RIP and 10a!)
1997 2.0 16v (again!)
it looks good, but I think I agree with Alex about it being red (us Silverstone boys stick together). It looks like the Silverstone spoiler and so it should have a rubber bit under the middle leg too. Check my site (link at bottom) for a pic of the spoiler on my car.
You can order a Silverstone front splitter from Alfaowner, they are about £115 all in. I ordered a replacement for my car about 2 months ago and the suppliers in Italy sent me a 75 DTM splitter instead !!! So if you order one, I get the first one that arrives !!!
Looks good to me but I think it would be even better in red.
By the way the guy who i bought my spoiler off (STD type) is talking about breaking his L reg 8 valver. He fitted a similar spoiler to Henry so that should be up for sale if anyones interested.
He also has a set of 5 spoke alloys about 2.5 years old! Not sure what make though.
Well, we've discussed this. Definately black on mine now the spoiler is black but not sure about yours. Blue is a strange colour for modifying IMHO.........its too cool to mess with and the only black on yours is the wheels!!!
