How much did you pay to paint? Also, how well was it color matched for Orxy White Pearl? I'm more interested in the color matching as I was told it's hard to color match this paint...

Thanks.

I like the front splitter and rear diffuser but not crazy abut the wing, to each their own. Is it just cosmetics or has anyone done any track testing with these?

Paint was $340 as I tipped the painter $40. That was for all three pieces. Roof spoiler, front spoiler and splitter. The color match went well. Had to take the car in for the perfect match on my car which was one base coat, 3 pearl coats and then clear.

All these pieces are functional and were tested in a wind tunnel according to Oettinger. Not tracking the car so not a huge deal for me. This was also confirmed by Racingline.

Wow. Very sharp!

I was interested in the Osir vented hood when I saw they finally had one for the MK7. I love the look, then they told me the cost. $3,229 pluse $290 shipping.

I really should thank them for being insane. One less thing I will even consider buying.


Great choices and great look, Beaker!

How do you think it affects your approach angle?

So far so good in fact I can get it up the ramp to my lift with no problem and that parking space across from my house I went up no problem. Assuming huge speed bumps might be an issue but not as low as the Vette was so I'm hopeful!

Never a worry. You know me! Dealing with a new puppy right now and she's a handful for sure!

Hey

Hey man, I just read the story, thanks so much for sharing this, and your car looks so nice, i just wanted to know that like which web did you finally bought those and how much did you pay for it? Coz i just got my new 17 golf r and im planning to get a set of Oettinger spoiler and wings! And I'm in Canada, so i think we are in the similar situation. Thanks for sharing.

I purchased all of the parts through www.bakperformance.com , it was pricey but worth every penny. Looks so good on the car imo. All the parts and prices are listed there. Hope this helps. If you need direct help just contact them as they are super helpful. Had all the parts in Stock and had them in a couple of days.
