I've had my replacement splitter in a box for nearly 3 years. Said to myself I would put it on when I sell the car. 9 years later and the car is going nowhere.
It's a perfect blend for my weekend and touring trips.
Looks so much nicer now.

It looks slightly better :grin:
 
Looks like it was doing its job well. :thumbs:
 
Looks like the last one did well :)
 
looks great - was it an easy swap - just screw off and on again or does it need body tape?

Hi
Jusr two screws at each corner. Starting from one corner it just pulls out.
Literally 10-15 minute. I jaked the front of the car up but there is no need too.
 
Good to know it's that quick and straightforward.

There was a time when they were in short supply, so like you, I ordered one from OPC and it is now stashed in the garage attic. I keep thinking to change it, but didn't up until now because I was always thinking about the daft, brutal off ramp on the Rotterdam ferry, but I doubt that's going to be a problem this year, so I may get on and swap.
 
My splitter on the RS is pretty much the same; where the best place to get a new one please?
 
If you're in PCGB you can order from OPC and get a discount.

Top tip, order the two expanding screws too; one of mine had sheared off at the head.
