I like the Zymexx rear spoiler. But don't know if it will match with my dark gray 124.
Has somebody got it mounted? Please post pictures.

Nice spoiler. I bought the carbon fiber spoiler from Madness which attaches easily to the trunk lip with 3M autotape, but I havent installed it yet because im afraid the tape will lift off my heritage stripe paint if I decide to remove the spoiler later.
I like the slightly lifted look of your spoiler.

Zymex makes cools stuff, this spoiled cost aroud $550 USD
Google tells Zymex is good for your intestines.

Zymexx on the other hand has a German website that looks like it MIGHT be car related! No US vendors or sources popped up though. Are there any?

I think your concern over that tape is reasonable. I bought some to attach the garnish to the center of the lower fascia and it took three rolls before I found one fresh enough to hold. That was a very long piece of tape assisted by a hair dryer to get it a bit more gooey. I think the mass of a spoiler is a lot more to manage than some small amount of tape!
best regards

Thats exactly my concern even though I understand that 3M doublesided tape is meant to hold it on. I dont want to be responsible for my spoiler flying off at speed and impaling the windshield of the driver behind me. I did use 3M tape to attach the red lip to my bottom fascia and its never loosened, but the mass of the fascia lip is much less than the spoiler.

I have the Zymexx spoiler fitted to my Arctic white Abarth. I'll post some pictures tomorrow, It comes pretty rough straight out of the mould, packed in a flimsy cardboard box that does very little to protect it.

If you search the forum there is prior discussion re spoilers.

But beware....I'm in Australia and it took 10 weeks to get it. Zymexx freight via DHL and once it leaves their hands THEY DON'T GIVE A RATS ARS* what DHL do with it. Mine sat at Frankfurt airport cleared to go for 8 weeks. I had to beg and scream and initiate a PAYPAL refund action for them to condescend to contact DHL, who even then said it will basically leave Frankfurt whenever they can get to it.
Its a great looking spoiler let down by incredibly unprofessional aftersales service and a "we don't care" freight company.
Spoiler is unpainted atm....just getting placement correct.

I put on the Maxton Designs spoiler with 3M tape and it is not going anywhere. Added a stripe afterwards on centerline of trunk.
Good to know since Im concerned with attaching my madness carbonfibre spoiler with 3M tape. Im more concerned with the tape lifting off the heritage stripe paint should I decide to remove the spoiler later.
Have you got any pics of your car with spoiler ?

I ordered mine in December...still not here
Damn, if it takes that long, I may get another brand spoiler and resale the zymexx when it arrives. A real shame, because the Zymexx looks like the perfect size in my opinion, larger than the usual low-profile spoilers. I haven't found any similar to the Zymexx made for our Spiders, and may have to get one custom made to be close to that style.

I was going to order the same spoiler you mentioned but opted for their "spoiler cap" instead. Maybe your version will arrive quicker.

Carrozzeria CHD Sas makes some interesting rear spoilers for 124 models. CHD Tuning is based in Turin, the home of Abarth.

The other 2 things I ordered form Zymexx came promptly in only 2 weeks, but no spoiler. I got their luggage rack and some stainless steel exhaust tips. The spoiler delays might be from a shortage from a supplier. But Zymexx doesn't like communicating.
The installation instructions for the exhaust tips were in German and I had to type it up into a translator. They say the tips can be installed with clamps they came with, or welded on. I'm thinking of clamping them incase I want to coat the tips in another color in the future, or replace them, so uninstalling them is easier. Are clamps a bad idea?

I ended up getting my Zymexx spoiler in just under a month from when I paid for shipping. Was pleasantly surprised.
