RE: More tt

Unfortunately, all the TT spyders WILL arrive with that ugly thing tacked
on. At least the recalled cars (coupes) can do what you suggest.

Of course, in the good ol' USA, doing so probably opens you up to some legal
BS that "voids your warranty" if you don't do the entire recall.....

Well at least in the USA the spoiler won't be available as soon as the other
parts for the campaign. I think I would consider (at least if I had a TT)
having the suspension modifications done before the spoiler was available
and then just never return to have the spoiler installed. Or just not let
them install the spoiler when they do the rest.

		We here in the states, one looks at that spoiler and
proposes, "that's a JC
		Whitney" spoiler (large mail order aftermarket source
renouned for cheezy car
		additions).  Hardly a compliment.  My own thinking is, that
if someone told
		me I "had" to have that spoiler on the back of my tt, I'd
consider giving the
		car back.  That thing is really ugly to the rear lines of
the tt that was
		penned without it.  Function-smunction.  But then again,
hanging weights off
		the bumper of any clean sheet designed chassis is an
interesting concept in
		and of itself.

		I'm with you on the thinking Tom.  I don't think more pix of
the rear spoiler
		is what tt owners need right now.
