I have a high spoiler, so my guess is it makes no difference!

My high level spoiler is murder for it lol, though it only has 3 bolts holding it on as one of the holes has threaded, and it was previously fitted so the adhesive stuff I assume it is that is inbetween spoiler and boot is all worn ;-( lol.


I want to get it smoothed in one day, that should sort it just fine and look better too ;-)

My F2 EVO Spoiler does it too, Think its when water/moisture gets underneath then freezes causing it to rise slightly.

The spoilers are hollow and not airtight, they have drain holes in them as well so it may just be a case of ice forming inside and rattling about.
