Rear Spoiler

Has anyone got pictures of 75's with rear spoilers fitted on? like the spoiler found on the MG ZT? Do you think it looks ok or not. I'm thinking of putting one on ! I don't know how much one would cost. It would also need to be repainted, obviously. It's most probably me but I can't seem to see one for sale.

theres a few on ebay.. one with full bootlid in Xpg for 50.. what colour you after?. sometimes you can drop on one the colour you want.. and i think they look ok, even on a 75.. some dont like the look.. do a google search for pics, and you will find one..

Many Thanks Keith. I would want one in Moonstone Green. I did look on e bay but for the life of me I couldn't actually find one. T-Cut sent me a link and I liked the pictures on the whole but the spoiler on Y286 NCX 75, is not the one I personally like.

no need to call them.. the ones ive linked to will all fit... and check your boot lid underneath at the edges,, you should even have the marks/cutouts for drilling the holes to fasten the spoiler.. one of the fastners will need the rubber bump stops unscrewing ..

Thanks again Keith. I need to find out how much my neighbour ( a bodyshop specialist) will charge me for fitting and respraying it before I go ahead. I am grateful to you. Martin.

Honestly fitting them is very simple.. the holes to drill are sometimes marked out already.. cant really go wrong even if their not marked out.. painting is probably about a 30-40 pro job.. or you could basecoat laquer it with rattlecans..for 20 if you know how to do it

I'm a botcher upper. You know what they say Keith, leave it to the professionals. Especially when its going on to a thing of beauty you've got to get it done well.

Thumbs up Rear Spoiler

I still haven't done anything on a rear spoiler yet but will do. I was also thinking of purchasing a new set of wheels from Wheelbase as well as doing the spoiler. The reason is that the original ones are not shiny enough, for me. I will give them as good a clean as I can. I have Wonder wheels and Demon Wheels solutions. I can't think what else I can use to make them more shiny.

I have made enquiries and the cost between purchasing the new set and refurbishing the current wheels is negligible. However if I was to purchase a completely new set, would I fall foul of the dreaded insurance? I'm pretty sure I would have to advise them and that could see the premium rise.

Please may I have views on the above?

Thanks in advance

What wheels do you have at the moment.?. in my opinion the only zt alloys that look the part are the 11 spoke and the 10 spoke Apex alloys both these wheels can look fantastic refurbed for under 200. in silver sparkle or a shadow chrome....any other zt alloy(straights or hairpins) i think look poor...But a good refurb will make them shine like a diamond in a goats ass... and i think you will be correct in saying aftermarket alloys should be declared to the insurance company. some companies will put a loading on for them..

Thanks a lot for replying.I am not sure what the wheel is called. I went onto e bay to see if I could find out ; could it be called 5 stud?
I have copied the link to the wheel I would like @270 for 4. Wolfrace Eurosport Assassin16-034-Rover-75-Alloy-Wheel-No-Tyre-x1-C. I hope it shows up.

I looked around at having my wheels refurbished and have been quoted around 45 to 60 per wheel but have been advised that the refurb will only just make them a little shinier than they are. That disappointed me as I would be happier if they were made silver sparkle. I'm not sure what shadow chrome looks like. I actually want to be able to find a refurb company that can actually show me how the refurbished wheel would look like before I consider the refurb but can't find a local company.

not the best looking alloys imho.. if i were looking at aftermarket alloys id be going 18". but i have the ZT. so id be looking at 19".. you have the 75 with im guessing 16" alloys at the moment.. you would be better off getting a used set of 18" 10 spokes with tyres .. these are 10 spokes.. and a brilliant price..

Yes you are right they do look nice dont they? You've given me food for thought. Yes I have the 75. I'm going to see if I can clean them up or refurbish my ones before I consider the spokes as it will cost even more if I was to buy the spokes and then refurbish them. I've got to factor that all in but I'm most grateful to you. Many Thanks for the moment and I will report back.
