    shows you really need a splitter when you've got the cup spoiler. looks much more in balance.

    Yeah I know how quick they are :wink: Is this the one which has been owned by a few members on here (used to have an 'FMP' number plate I think)? You need to get a thread up!

    197 with front splitter needs the Cup spoiler. 200 suits the Sprint spoiler IMO.

    I like the Cup spoiler optical wise but it would mean a complete swap of the boot lid in my case as it wouldn't fit the current one.

    There are a few reasons why I've dropped the idea by now.

    - it slightly reduces top speed but no gain in down-force (compared to the one mine came with) from what I get
    - it seems to deform (presumably sun/heat related) so that some people had to put transparent rubber spacers above the third brake light to keep it from touching the top of the boot lid
    - paint(ing) issues: the matt grey seems to be a difficult terrain, same goes for extra glossy black it seems
    - the money it would cost can be used for more important things (like coke and hookers for example) :sunglasses:

    Which spoiler was it that looks like a sprint but it moves the brake light onto the actual spoiler so it doesn't need that cutout?

    Looked really good and been trying to find one...

    EDIT: This one?

    @Barney626 ... yup. as eddie said, GT. i think it's a renault part only. you'd need a different boot lid as well.
