Yes. The hypotenuse side of the triangle on a Gen 2 is 3/8" inches longer than that of Gen 1. That's why you see that gap on your glossy piece. But if it works well, that's what counts.

This is what I have.

Designed and printed those anti wind buffeting strips. Can't believe how well they work in cutting down the cabin noise when driving with windows down! Can't believe it took me 7 years to do something like this. This is definitely way better looking than the wiper mod!

Aquarian, any chance you could share the file for this? We have a 3D printer in the house, would like to try this on. Thanks in advance,

Tim

It’s only a few measurements Tim, Should be easy enough to recreate in CAD.

You are right. It should be easy enough, except it will take a long time. Design, print, test-fit. Design, print, test-fit, and repeat many times.

Or, the easiest way is to cut out some wiper blade and just tape it on and call it a day, lol.

I have a feeling that one of these each side might solve the problem with some 3M tape. The only downside I can foresee is the chocolate melting in the summer.

R&D MEETING 1 update: The chocolate could be eaten before fitting. Therefore negating the internal melting effect.
R&D MEETING 2 update: The mini spoiler could be aesthetically carbon fibre wrapped in order to blend in with the rest of the car.
R&D MEETING 3: Scheduled.

Hey if you feel you really need to squeeze a few hundred bucks extra out of the R8 community....

Those look decent, especially for 3.50$

Beats spending 110$ for a low resolution print.

Is that the price being charged for this? That's a significantly worse deal than the $100 cup holder mod (not to bash it, since I quite like mine).

Personally, I think the wiper mod looks much cleaner than this print.

Yes. I have tried the wiper mod and didn't like the appearance of it. Many of my friends kept pointing out the wiper mod on my car so that's why I decided to design and make my own.

Thanks for coming up with a solution! R8talk has always been a very helpful community. Sorry I didn’t mean to hijack this thread with my solution. You took the time and effort to creat something nice for the R8. Now it’s up to everyone if they want to buy it or not.

Don't quite understand the negativity on this. A member took his/her time to create something that could address the complaints of wind buffeting and if the price is putting you off, then move on. You've taken two swipes at him/her because of the price now, and that seems like an overkill.
