    Fitting GSi Spoiler?

    Are the holes the same for the SXi spoiler and GSi, and I want to get the GSi one now, but dont want be left with holes in the bootlid.

    If I do need to drill more, what would you recommend to fill the holes.

    I asked the exact same question! I was told you will have to drill new holes and just to use filler for the holes

    Rear holes stay, you drill two new ones in front of the others.
    The holes are covered on top by the spoiler.
    If you want them filled, the best way is to get them welded up, but the botlid will need repainted.

    Oh right ok then. But its just water will run in the boot otherwise and make a mess.

    So its jsut a case of drilling extra holes in front of the others, and it bolts on. Might be costly having welded and repainted. Any producrs out there which would fill the hole and not let water in?

    its hidden by the new spoiler, fill them with whatever you want, clean silicon or anything... but the water is only going to drop into where the water normally runs through anyway when falling from the roof

    How will it, the holes are at the edge of the bootlid, the sit on the outside of the lip with the rubber seal.
