Is anyone aware of a subtle boot lip spoiler for the A5? I don't mean a 'wing' as such, just a little lip (as fitted to the Aston Martin V8 Vantage).

I think something really subtle that doesn't look like an add-on would enhance the tail-end profile nicely...

Yes, the A5 does have a little lip. But, I think prhim's asking about the availability of a small, inconspicuous aftermarket spoiler.

prhim, ABT makes one (if this is the kind of look you're referring to).

The A5's trunk lid lip is less aggressive than the S5's. It's subtle, but noticable from the right angles.

Hey, I didn't say that I liked it ... I'm just the messenger. :D

It's not my style either, actually.

FWIW, here's my A5 trunk lid lined up right next to sizzle's S5. I took the pic this past weekend, as I was curious about the subtle differences in the look of the rear spoiler. You'll see that the S5's spoiler is definitely more pronounced (which I like).

Incidentally, this is one of my favourite details on this car - the triangle of metal at the back face of the rear wing formed by the top of the rear light cluster, edge of the boot/trunk and the crease running from the corner of the lights. I think it's very Aston Martin in its looks.

Oh dear, is this my OCD rearing it's head again...?

About the only offering I've seen that fits the bill is from Caractere. It's relatively subtle but given that, as discussed, the S5 already essentially has an integrated spoiler, any further adornment is probably superfluous (although I don't think this particular example looks too bad....)

Yup! You read correctly - 'Ess5ive proclaims body adornment as superfluous'. Given my recognised penchant for adding all manner of unnecessary tat to my cars, no doubt that will riase some eyebrows. Maybe I'm maturing? Or exiting my mid-life-crisis?

Discuss.

I dont know TX they sure look pretty close to being the same....which I like as well.

I think an aftermarket spoiler would kill the cars sleek look.

Just my opinion

Yes, they're pretty close, alta. But in person and side-by-side, you can definitely notice the differences better. As for an aftermarket spoiler, I agree with you about it losing the car's sleek look.

Does that come with the under carriage neon ground effects package? When is Audi just going to start offering this direct? They know we all want it and will pay mad money for it!

(first one to use an emoticon loses! <- crap maybe that counts!)
