I have added some quite nice, and relatively inexpensive, accessories to my new Eos:
1. rear spoiler (ultra-lite, come pre-painted in`exact colour match)
2. chrome mirror covers and door handle covers
3. sport pedals
.. all are available through E-Bay from different sources. I wouls also like to find an after market wind block ... can't stomach the $720 Canadian that VW is asking for original equipment, but have not seen any sources. Does anybody know of one?

Where did you get the spoiler for your car and do you have pictures with it on? Was thinking about putting one on my car as well....

Hi Wanda,
Go to EBay Auto Parts and Acessories Category .. type in "eos" and you will find the spoiler. It is made in Texas, there is a picturewith the ad, and it costs $225 plus freight. I got my dealer to install it just to be safe. Looks great to me.

Thanks!
I have already sent an email to Corporate, explaining that I tried to order with car but it was not available; so don't understand now why it is twice the price as an add-on. GAve the VIN numbers of the four brand new VW's I've bought in last 5 years. Let's see how that works.

I think that spoiler looks pretty sweet. Looks like there were plenty of people in that forum that didn't think so though. I might consider one for 'ol Elmer the Eos.

Don't think you would be sorry .. mine is very well made, water-tight, extremely light, and less than 1q/2 what you would pay for the same thing from VW. Colour match was also perfect..

Schoolhousefred and others.....I have the same EXACT spoiler you have on your cars....and ordered it direct from the manufacturer (D.A.R. Enterprises, Inc. in GrandPrairie, TX). The spoiler is actually sold by their sales group, Wood Dash Experts - their phone number is 800.505.3274 and their e-mail address is www.wooddashexperts.com

Their part # is DAS-FG-072 and the spoier costs $147.50 primed + $85.00 painted to EXACTLY match the factory color of your EOS + Freight. You will have to provide the exterior paint color number of your car, which can be found on the stick-on label on the side wall of the spare tire well.

I had a body shop friend of mine install the spoiler on my EOS....but very easy to understand and follow directiosn are provided on the the website for a true NO-DRILL attachment using the provided 3M Automotive mounting tape. My install guy also applied a professional silicone adhesive inside the perimeter of the 3M tape to give the installation an even mored permanent mounting.

I must say that this low-profile spoiler has very "factory-original" look and really improves the appearance of the rear end of the car.....:) ;) !!

I honestly don't understand the negative comments about THIS spoiler on the vortex.com website?!?! Everybody is entitled to their opinions, and further, "opinions are like buttholes....EVERYBODY has one"!!!!

I will post some pictures as soon as I get a chance.

Hi FreddyBear,
Mine came through EBay from SpoilerSolutions in Mansfield, Texas and cost $220 (included painting) plus $25 freight. The kit was based on drilling holes in the trunk lid, which I was reluctant to do, so I opted to rough the surface and attach it with epoxy. I've had it now for about 6 months and have been very pleased with it in all respects ... quality, color match, and look. I suspect it is indeed the same one you bought and we are both pleased. Many people turn their noses up because they equate quality with brand name and price, which is not always the case! In this case, the quality and price are both there! Cheers!
