hey guys,

just completed the mod on my a5, only issue is that it does’t go 100% down, flushed with the trunk...

PFA :


any idea if i did something wrong when dismantling it for painting, or how can i corect this? it stays like 1cm up... if i manually push it it goes down the cm no resistance. if it’s up i can’t move it at all by hand ...

I PM'ed you.

And yes, its everything you need to wire it up, it's almost plug and play. I designed it for people without much knowledge about car electrics.
Hi I have a 2012 S5 convertible- will this electric spoiler upgrade work on my car?

No, because the RS5 bootlid is different!

The RS5 bootlid swap only works for the coupe version A5/S5 as the convertible and sportback are different.

My admittedly wild speculation: It looks like the spoiler 'bounced' when going down - like it was headed down, hit some sort of limit, then moved back up a small amount. So possibly it was reassembled 'out of alignment'? I have no clue what the 'proper' procedure would be, but if I had to take a stab at it, possibly loosen the spoiler blade enough that the mechanism can operate freely. Cycle a few times to let it go to the natural 'down' position, then tighten/adjust the spoiler blade to be fully down at that point.

That's correct , that's why not even the RS5 convertible has it , only coupe hard tops . Now I tell you this , a good body repair shop could make it happen and it can look stock , but like I said "a good body repair shop"

Did you get one of the wire harnesses from Baas?

No , I had everything for the retrofit including the wiring .

What are you missing?
I'm in the prepping phase, I have all my s5 components to swap over. I bought a new decklid bare. I have the spoiler complete with motor and mount assembled. I still need to get the bcm2 and console switch. So my questions lie around the correct bcm2, the plug for the switch and the wiring from the trunk.

Right now I'm looking at 8k0907064km for the module and I found pigtails for it. I just can't find the wiring for the trunk and a pigtail for the switch.

Yeah , I hear you, but at least you got some main components, you can always install and later wire it up as you get the rest of parts .
I've reached out to wolf auto parts for the wiring of the trunk and a pigtail for the switch
Yeah wolf is a good source, you might also consider( german_parts ) on Ebay, they too have many rs5 parts , I recently bought the rs5 cluster from them , so try them out too .

No problem, best of luck !
I'm in the middle of retrofitting the rs5 cluster to my S5 and also the side skirts too. Not sure if to post it here or on another forum but once I finish with both projects I'll post them.
