Default Cabrio Rear Spoilers...?

I've seen the RS5 convertible spoiler for the S5, besides that, are there any other ones that aren't cheap eBay ones?

I've found so many for the coupe, cabrios, not so much ...

Thx!

My advise would be to avoid rear spoilers all together. The 5's have such a sleek loot to them, especially in the back. That doesn't need to be covered by a spoiler. If you must do it, get a 1" lip that rests on the back. It'll give a look to it and can be easily taken off. It also doesn't impare the beauty of the rest of the car.

I tested a few. I'm down to these 2. One is a generic one, the smaller one is the Audi factory one. I'm going to paint them both,

then fit them again.

I was in the same boat. I just put on a carbon fiber RS5 on my S5 2014 cab. There are two Audi accessory spoilers but none of the Audi brochures/online had a good picture. One is smaller and the larger one is above. The RS5 is in between size wise. I really had considered the bigger one but bit on the RS5 and I am glad I did. (IMHO the above is too big).

I read a lot of posts on various forums as to what fits and the trunk differences. A5 is different from S5. Cab is different from coupe and some threads say facelift is different from pre.

There is a carbon fiber one for the cab on ebay but it is too aggressive looking for my taste https://www.ebay.com/itm/US-Carbon-F...19.m1438.l2649

I saw that one, but couldn't find any more pics. besides the generic ones, so I didn't buy it. The one you have installed looks perfect!

From all the pictures from people that had the RS5 spoiler, it looked small and "added/tacked" on. In person it is the right size for a stock S5 and does work with the trunk lines.

Yeah, that's why I didn't get it. I never saw it in person, but I guess it does look good.
