Maxton only list it as FL only, but I didn’t honk the spoiler was any different with mine. Maxton can be a bit rubbish like that.

@paddy6789 your the man with the plans. Can you check the part numbers maybe?
Pre face lift spoiler: 5F9827960
Facelift spoiler: 5F9827960

Same part apparently, according to ETKA for the model PR-K8D (VAG code for Wagon/Avant). So in theory the Maxton lip should fit a PFL car if it’s the same spoiler.

I posted a week ago that I found out some idiot had left a dent on my passenger side door on my Cupra. Luckily no scratches there but it is a visible dent. It is small by annoying. Size of a golf ball but just a few mm "deep". What can be done about that?

Anyway, tonight I found out someone had backed into the rear diffusor of our BMW 1 series, left a 5 inch crack. No luck lately.

No note left on the car this time either, it's been parked outside our house for two weeks due to the virus, wife works from home (it is her car)

So, my passenger side mirror dips when reversing, all well and good. When manouvering around the car park however, it doesn't seem to raise when putting the car into D? Is there some minimum speed before it goes back up again or something?

EDIT: Nevermind, clearly a case of RTFM, raises back up when the ignition is off or you exceed 15kph forward.

Yup. The speed when it goes back up can be changed using Carista if you use that.

Yesterday, I fitted a Chinese cheapo LED strip in the boot (but not yet wired in as I couldnt find any scotchlocks in my toolkit and being under virus lockdown etc). I fitted a pair of similar ones in my old Exeo ST and they were brilliant (literally and figuratively)
Today I fitted the dashcam I'd taken from my old car. I'd just started the job with bits of trim loose when it started hailing, then snowing, and it stopped as soon as I'd finished and gone back into the house.

I desperately need to clean mine, but whilst I'm still doing work on the house, it'll have to wait. An planning on giving it a really good clean as I haven't for a year

Car has been sat on the drive doing nothing for the last week or so. Going to clean it this weekend and get the reiger diffuser fitted. In the mean time, here is another picture of it with the new fog intakes.


I'm pretty sure you've linked it before but I'm not sure where, but could you please share where you bought these? I'd definitely be interested in buying some for mine. Looks great.
