I'll have 300 of whatever he's taking!
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Seems a little expensive for a device that stops the shopping falling on the ground.

......a heck of a lot cheaper than those Polish BX Spoilers that show up from time to time on eBay......£49-99 each! (plus about £15 transport) :shock:

I also find it very useful as a handle to push the car in and out of the garage, can't see much use for it other than that, does anyone know whether it functional in any way, shape or form?

I have asked this question before, it seems that there is no published data regarding the technical performance.

So it seems it's purely visual.. Unless anyone knows otherwise.

It performs no appreciable aerodynamic function. It is a marketing tool. And it will not fit an estate - unless you stick it to the bonnet maybe :lol:

True, although it does have the tiniest bit of effect on air flow at speed, but so little it's barely worth mentioning.

Cant understand the appeal myself, yes they look nice, and I had one on the TD for a while, but it made changing the rear wiper blade a PITA and in no way shape or form does it look anywhere near as cool as a whaletail.
