Seems pretty easy to install and configure. Anyone have one?
What is yours set at. Don't really need it at 45 mph....
Would like it to go up at about 70 mph.

I've had mine for while now, almost a year I guess.

Up at 35.
Down at 5.

I like my spoiler up most of the time, but in traffic, the up/down is annoying. These settings work great for me, in traffic it stays down.

Yes. The factory spoiler on the 1.8ts was set to deploy at 93mph from '99 - '01, and at 48mph for the '02 - '05 New Beetles.

This module allows you to set your own deployment and retraction speeds for the spoiler.

What do you mean non-equipped? The Tailwagger is for any NB 1.8T with a deployable spoiler. If you don't have such a car, this device is pointless.

You know, somehow I don't think this will work, unless your 2.0L ECU has the software to send speed sensor data to that wing.

Furthermore, the TailWagger, which is a custom module you purchase separately, is programmed via the manual deploy switch, which is also not present in a 2.0L NB.

I'm sure you can get it to work -- but it's not going to be simple, and I certainly don't know how to do it. PM elfchief, he helped develop the TailWagger and might know just how big a job this will be.
