    is it all spoilers you dont like or just the 1 you've got fitted?

    as the easy solution would be to just replace it for 1 you do like, hence covering up or even re-using the old bolt holes.

    With the money u make from selling your spoiler (if its a genuine Irmscher one) then put that towards the cost of the bodyshop repair.......or look for another tailgate or diff spoiler

    DCP do excellent replicas of spoilers if ur after one

    GSi replica which is excellent quality and fitting http://www.dcp-shop.co.uk/buy-car-ac...oducts_id=5100
