I was nominated for the Oprah Heroes show by members of a support group I've run for 8 years. Turned out that the Heroe's Show was actually the last Oprah's last Favorite Things show. I got my denim blue 2.5L on October 13, 2011. I LOVE IT!
I'm now a member of another group for people who were in the audience that day, and one of the members got a spoiler installed by VW on her Beetle. It was over $1,000 to do this, which seemed a bit pricey to me. I started doing research about getting a rear spoiler for my car, and found a company online called Elite Spoilers. They have a factory style spoiler that can be custom painted for around $320.00. You can see it here:
While doing that research I also found the discussion on vwvortex.com about the Denim Blue spoiler and how the hatch was changed out costing close to $3,000--I think I would have ordered a turbo for that kind of money myself, but to each his own
Anyway, my question is about the hatches: are they the same or different on the Turbo VS the 2.5L? The photo on the Elite Spoilers website shows the spoiler installed on a Turbo, so I emailed them asking if the spoiler would also fit the 2.5L, and they responded with the following:
I dont believe that they are different. We have been using this same model for the past 6 months and have not run in to any issues yet.
I'm just wondering if anyone on this forum knows? Thanks for any information you may have.
