I purchased my CSL boot from teddy. Teddy is an awesome guy but my boot was far from a good fit. Cost me a fortune to have it fitted. He charged me 500 for it, but after the issues I had with fitment and extra installation, painting costs he did give me a 100 discount. Could not fault teddy for giving me the discount. My carbon diffuser was a little better but not great. Required a few modifications to get it to fit.
To be fair I have used neither as my car is OEM. But there is some real bad feedback, staff incompetence aside it was to do with servicing and parts used and charges etc which if it is costing then surely thats managerial?

You will never get a good fit with aftermarket parts. Hence why they are aftermarket just copies unless you go for vorsteiner or the like. But Far eastern copies will always be poor, but out of the poorness reviews popping up are that SSDD has a better quality of comparable fitment if that makes sense.

Anyway here is a post I copied you can clearly see the difference in both grills.

The bottom picture is the replacement from Teddy at SSDD, these pictures where taken on my iphone to the naked eye its chalk and cheese.

I had an awful experience there too. Prices are mediocre and expensive for somethings.

Customer Service was good until, the guy who I thought was manager, was awful.

Never giving these guys my service again.
