Yeah they are different all right. I think you could take a piece of cardboard and trace the edge of your car and then adapt its shape and grind away metal on the mount if you wanted. Unless its the plastic "feet". Find the aluminum feet and you would be good.

I ground the feet for my hatch. Hatchback air deflectors are hard to find.

Meeky Moose, I bought a deflector/wing for an EA81 from Moosens about 2 months ago. When it arrived, I went to put it on and discovered the same problem as you. I'm curious if the one I have, is the one you need, and the one you have the one I need? Maybe we can trade... I can send you a pic of mine if you're curious.
