I got it at an sign shop. several were around the same price. one was 22 and another was 20 along with the place I got it from.

look in the phone book for sign shops and call around. I was suprised at how cheap it was and you get one big piece so you don't have to piece it together if you want a large one.

btw, the internet was no help nor ebay. they wanted way too much for small pieces.

you're in charlotte....want mine?

That tire deflector looks just like something on my VW, but my VW has a big hole in front of it...

I think it has something to do with brake ducts on the sportier GTI model. In the spring I'll probably coroplast the holes.

I got mine at a sign shop too but I think they took me for a ride. If you are selling I'll buy it. This will give me a good reason to meet up with another hypermiler

Darned HAI rattled loose and intake temps fell to just 78* milage plummeted. I'll have to rethink how it is attached.

I'm waiting for the refill this tank is going to suck because over 1/2 was with a faulty HAI so it's looking like a 33mpg tank plus I just added some more coroplast to the car.


this is the hole I filled
