Abt exterior parts

Today was an excellent day. Along with a thorough detailing, my ABT parts arrived from Germany via Vivid Racing. I値l be be slowly updating this thread since I知 deploying next month but here are pics of the spoiler on the Touareg.









The fit is 100% perfect as you壇 expect from ABT. I知 trying to get it painted next week after Christmas.

Guess I値l update this thread. My body guy hasn稚 had a chance to get my spoiler painted and installed but I did get the following.

- 2016 Porsche Cayenne Turbo wheels and tires

- 18z Cayenne brakes(won稚 be installed until later)

- H&R lowering springs

- VW front valence(7P0-071-608-A-JKA)

I値l be deploying in early March but the wheels and drop will be in by next weekend. The specs on the wheels are 21x10+50 so with the extra .5(12mm) in width and the 9mm difference in offset between the 21 Mallorys(for reference) to the Turbo wheels should make it flush with the fender.

Attached is just a photo of the wheels. I値l have pics of the wheels on the car here soon. If anyone has questions about the fit or want specific pics when they get installed, don稚 hesitate to ask.

First and foremost.... thank you for your service where ever you are, I'm surprised Nooby hasn't demanded you update your profile to show it.


Second... and I hate to be a negative Nancy... but I'm not liking the spoiler. There's a space between it and the original one that houses the 3rd brake light. What's the purpose of it if you're going to be lowering the vehicle anyway(which IMO is not a good idea)?? The idea of a rear spoiler is to create down force so the vehicle is more stable at high speeds. You going racing??


The rims are nice, just watch out for curbs. Seems like the + offsets of these vehicles are susceptible to curb rash.

All in all... to each their own.
Good luck with your additions and be safe while deployed. I've got family deployed as well. Prayers for all.

Yes I have a Vag-Com cable and software. No it's not from Ross-Tech but works flawlessly

No need to apologize and opinions are welcomed here... good or bad. I知 going for a Cayenne GTS-esque look overall and it痴 purely aesthetic, the premium Cayennes have a similar spoiler set up. I know it痴 not everyone痴 taste but I like the Range Rover, Cayenne and AMG Mercedes look. I live in South Florida so other than going to an outdoor shooting range in farmland, my Touareg doesn稚 go off-road often... lots of highway driving for me.

Thanks for the kind words. I was in the Air Force for 6 years and now I work in the Drone/UAS world now so thanks again.

Personally.....I dig your choices! Cant wait to see it all come together. Abt is renown for their top notch quality so I'm sure once its painted, It'll blend in seamlessly achieving that OE+ look. Looking forward to finished product.


As previously spoken......Thx for your service man!!!

Thank you. It値l look a lot better when the springs are installed. The factory Turbo wheels fill the wheel well perfectly.
