I think that a discrete, blended in boot lid spoiler, much the same as was available for the 620, wouldn't necessarily look out of place but I'm afraid that my opinion of the one shown above is somewhat negative ;) Each to his own, however.

it looks out of place and would it do much any why ? as don't look like the ones normally fitted to zt's which i would expect are fit for purpose......

That would be the right one for the job, although having a spoiler on a front wheel drive car is a bit of a waste of time, apart from being aesthetically pleasing. :)

The ZT spoiler you have installed looks very good on 75s

Ah, that's what you might think but not so. A lad who lives a street away from me has a Vauxhall corset which has a sort of a bi-plane assembly on the back of the roof and, apparently, owing to the increase of the air velocity over the 'aerodynamic surfaces' and the 'ventura effect' [sic] it gives his vehicle an extra 5 mph on top speed.

Sounds good to me. I've decided to alter my lectures on aerodynamics to accommodate what is obviously a well reasoned and logical argument. Might even be a doctorate thesis in there somewhere ;)

I know, I'm being sarcastic again :confused:
