Not often you see one of these for sale! A boot spoiler like mine but a different colour.

Wow... looking a while for that! Very rare in the mainland of Europe.

I'm wondering if the middle thirt brakelight is for sale too!

The English ones didn't have a brakelight. Mine certainly has not got one and never has. It looks better without anyway

I'm not sure. I know it isn't a legal requirement that cars of this age have a middle brake light in the UK. I've never seen another 164 in the UK with a boot spoiler though. Why mine has one I have no idea, but I wonder if it was an optional extra or was added later from a different model of 164. The boot badges say mine is a "Sport" model but I am told that Sport model was not made until a couple of years later than my car, so maybe at some time in te past the boot was replaced with one from a later car :?:
