Question Autohaus eBay seller legitimacy

Has anyone dealt with autohaus on eBay? He sells the Breyton front lip for much cheaper than roveractive whom I'm reasonably convinced is legit, which makes me wonder if autohaus' parts are too good to be true. However, his photos do show the Breyton brand and part number debossed into the backside of the front lip as well as what might be a Breyton instruction manual taped to it.

He's claiming it is original. His rating is pretty good. He can't advertise a replica as an original. If he does, you can buy the part and sue. I say it is legit.

not necessarily, as long as you received it, chances are you wont get a refund from Paypal, but this is a pretty good price

Not true. I bought many things from ebay, opened it, found out it was fake and got my refund easily. However, the difficult thing is finding out if its fake or not. They make good replicas at times, its hard to tell..

The price seems quite cheap especially in comparison to roveractive who charges almost double for the same part, and oftentimes when it's good to be true, it is, hence my doubt.

I'm not sure if they're Chinese, but their English is definitely awkwardly phrased.

I hit them up, and they responded that they are Autohaus 24 in Burbank.
