just check to see if the carbon fiber has UV protection. if it doesn't, in the future it might turn yellow
it's not exactly a bad thing if it turns yellow (because it's meant to be painted over) -- but if you're not painting it, you'll want one with UV protection

the product looks fine, i'd say if you want it get it.

I called them and they said it does have the UV protection, so I got it, will see how it looks soon!

I've made 2 purchases from them....the first purchase was for a VRS Type 1 M3 rear diffuser in polyurethane and it came pretty good, had to do some trimming to get it to fit like I like, but for $100 I wasn't mad. Customer service with them is great, I left a neutral feedback and within a day a rep emailed me asking what would have made everything better. I talked to the guy and he was more then helpful, and he made things better.

2nd purchase was the same rear diffuser in cf....and I was not happy with how it was made. The construction was horrible. It was not full CF (which I figured it would be) It was CF over the polyurethane, and it looked as if the piece was incompletely put together. But once again, I emailed them and after sending pics they were more the willing to take the piece back and refund the money.

Sorry for resurrecting an old thread but how is the fitment on this. I am looking to buy it myself to keep my bumper from scraping everything. I am also wondering what are other ebay options that have good fitment as well.

I bought this one however I didn't like the side fins on the spoiler, it was a great deal don't get me wrong for $200 cf spoiler with great fitment!! If it something you really like go for it! it was a great piece.. I would rather go for a Arkym rep if I were you, just $200 more and you have a sweet spoiler... great fitting and looks... get it from Mod bargains... you can find more pictures with that lip in my threads! good luck, I hope that helps!
