I shall post before and after pics for yous :) I did think that my Up had a wee spoiler but i think a slightly bigger one will give it a more sportier look

now .... what colour do I go for?? White to match the car, or black? or maybe something different?

Same! im a bit worried though, this will be the first time I get something like this done to my car, I've never really "dicked" up a car before. My local VW dont do any accessory painting or fitting so they have sent me to a third party place to get it done! Basically im picking up the spoiler from VW and I have to do the rest on my own. I THINK the spoiler needs to be glued on .... is this right?!? anyone shed some more info on this?

I'm sure the bodyshop will fit it for you once they've painted it. It may mean leaving it with them a while to let whatever adhesive they use go off.

Look forward to pics

Yes it is glued on... A black sticky gloop, I believe it's called sikaflex... But I could be wrong?

I stuck a rear spoiler on my mini, it was a messy job, black glue, white spoiler and roof. It was always trying to slide down so I used masking top to hold it just at the right position. It worked for me.
