    Well when I had my 280, the part numbers for 5 door and ST OEM skirts were the same.

    Invaluable as always thank you!

    Just noticed the car in the photo is an ST anyway so I’d say that’s pretty certain...

    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.

    Sorry missed that question just had to scroll back to find out what you are referring to.

    Te tape underneath that holds it on is about 5-6mm away from the very edge, so there is a gap At the very corner if you stoop down low enough...

    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.

    When you wash your car especially because it won't be used for a while and it still gets dirty just sitting there [​IMG]

    Maybe it is available only in the beta builds of the app, I've just used 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.

    Not much else to do, so a multiple hour wash, decontamination, clay, polish and ceramic coat, followed by wheel sealant, tyre dressing and glass sealant. Very happy!

    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.

    That looks the absolute nuts! (I'm biased as it's the same colour as mine though) Love the copper inserts.

    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.
