Does anyone know of any model/years of Golf, GTI, etc. hatch spoilers that also fit the JSW? I've searched around and found some speculation but someone must have tried it by now. Reason I'm asking is I'd like to get a more aggressive hatch spoiler and want to know if other VW models will interchange, therefore expanding my choices and availability. Thanks for your help.
i assume this means that golf MKVI front lips other then the Votex should fit our Wagons s well?
everyone's getting the vote so i'd want to get somethng else.. i wonder if the ebay front lips are any good..?
i dont think the side skirts fron an MKVI would fit though? i think we are longer wheel base?
the sportwagen is a mk5.. so any mk5 sideskirt will technically fit, length wise. You would probably need a skirt that is meant for a four door car though, since many of the two door side skirts would cover the rear body line of the rear doors.
I'm not sure about the front lip.. but I think the sportwagen frontend is different enough that you'd have to install a gti front bumper to use a lip meant for the mk6 gti.
what you are saying is:
- hatch spoiler will fit wagons from any GTI or regular Golf ?
- Side skirts from a 4 door golf will fit our wagons? both cars are same in length?
- front lip wont? the front end on the Golf(jetta) wagon looks the same as a regular golf. both have circular fogs, same headlights etc.
the only thing I said for sure is that the side skirts will fit. The car lengths are different.. but the wheel base and side areas are the same.
hatch spoilers.. I'm skeptical that anyone knows for sure if another mk5 or mk6 hatch spoiler will fit. I'd love it if someone tried though.
I own an '09, so I don't know enough about the mk6 frontends the 2010 & later cars got. I do know that the frontends are not completely the same.. so I don't know if the front lip from a gti or other mk6 will fit directly onto the stock sportwagen mk6 styled frontend.
We carry the Votex spoiler for the JSW -

Curious as to how a JSW would look without its rear spoiler but not curious enough to go out and remove mine for a peek. Anyone done it?
It would seem that for a rear spoiler to help keep the rear glass of a hatchback or wagon a bit cleaner wouldn't a roof line spoiler need to generate positive pressure across the glass and not negative pressure? Is there any real world benefit in having a roof extending rear spoiler on a hatch or wagon other than cosmetics or a convenient place to bury the center mounted brake light? We all pretty much agree that these spoilers don't seem to do much in the way of keeping the back window clean so why even bother?
a bad day in a Volkswagen, is better than a good day in a Honda...
