    Right i have decided that i should remove my rear spoiler of my vert, but what should i do about the holes that are left? I want to take it of as looking at loads of pics with them on and of i think a vert looks better with out them on. Also, front bumper, keep it as it is or go down the tried and tested route of m3 front bumper? I understand that its my car and all decisions are my choice but a bit of input wont hurt

    Heres current front bumper.....


    And a pic with spoiler on.....



    p.s, the eye brows are long gone!!

    I would lose the spoiler and keep the bumper...the bumper looks good because it IS different and evrybody does the M3 numper mod....Maybe a lip spoiler on the boot but been a vert I don't like spoilers on them at all because I feel it ruins the lines of the car when the roof is down....

    Thats what i was thinking about the front bumper plus its a one off, but i totally agree with what you say about the spoilers ruining the lines of a vert, but what about the holes left after the spoiler has been removed?

    really the only way to sort the holes properly is to get them filled and spray the lid.

    anything else will just look naff......sorry just my opinion.

    Lose the spoiler, keep the bumper. I like that front bumper as it is different...

    Easiest way would be to keep an eye out for a cabrio bootlid in the same colour with no spoiler. Will be much cheaper than repairing and painting the bottlid you have at the moment....

    loose the spoiler and keep the bumper it looks great
    i welded my holes up then got them sprayed and you couldn't notice a thing afterwards (just a thought for you)

    thinking the bumper looks good ...deffo keep it.
    if the spoiler has to go then sourcing a 2nd hand boot lid has to be the cheapest option? you may even be able to swap with a fellow vert owner that wants a boot spoiler lol
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.
