Caractere rear spoiler

A few of you probably wondered what it has taken me so attach a random piece of ABS plastic to my pride and joy to keep the decals company.

Well, fret no more. Having taken delivery on Friday of my new rear spoiler from Caractere (, supplied and painted courtesy of UK distributor Road and Sport developments (RSD), I fitted it it today and here's some pics.

The Missus made the usual comment 'That's why they're called 'spoil-ers' - oh, and and you're such a chav' but I have to say, it works pretty well - probably better in the flesh than in the pics, reasonably subtle but 'toughening-up' the rear end and adding to the sense of purpose created by the quad pipes.

Spoiler-fitment tends to split opinion - you either love 'em or hate 'em and I know that really, I should let well alone. There's nothing wrong with the A5 rear end that the S5 bootlid alone didn't cure. But it's done and really, the rear now has far-improved 'f*ck-off-ability' about it.

Right, guess it's Spinner's brake mods next, then probably some 20"s. Is there an end to all this?

Looks great. Here's mine in black.
can you please post more pics? i have a black s5 and would love to see it from some different angles. thanks
I was wondering if this would fit the s5, since there is a slight difference between the A5 bootlid and the S5 bootlid, because the s5 bootlid has a little more of a lip where the spoiler would attach to the A5...

I was wondering if it would fit anyway without any problems, or if there may be a different version, particularly for the s5???
yes it will - see post #16.
thanks for the heads up and pointing that out...

i cant believe i missed that after looking at the whole thread a few times, I guess i just went straight for the quote to find the pretty excessive price :yikes:
