Difference between these 2 spoilers - help!

Does anyone know the difference between these 2 spoilers? One is $50 cheaper but aesthetically are they the same...?
1) http://www.ebay.ca/itm/BMW-E92-Perfo...8bdff5&vxp=mtr
2) http://www.ebay.ca/itm/CARBON-FIBER-...6c63bb&vxp=mtr



EDIT: Old discussion:
So I am gonna purchase the e92 CF performance spoiler (http://www.ebay.ca/itm/BMW-E92-Perfo...8bdff5&vxp=mtr) which comes to about $200 CAD. My only concern is now with the cold weather and consistent temperature below 0 degrees celsius, will applying the spoiler be an issue?

Also, has anyone else purchased one of these in Canada? Were there import/duty fees?

Thanks!

I applied mine in the winter with no problems, but Vancouver isn't as cold as TO. Also I can't remember but I think there was a customs charge.

Thanks! I will apply it in the garage, where it is slightly warmer, but not by much...

how long did yours take to arrive and did you have to purchase additional 3M tape or was what they included sufficient?

I came across a pretty good deal here for anyone else interested, it looks like the same spoiler and it is CF:

Hmm my guess is that the more expensive one is for suckers, and the other isn't.

I just looked at this thread (http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1054098) and I think I got my answer... I think the cheaper one is a regular spoiler (like the first picture in that thread) and the $200 one is the high-kick version

The pictures on eBay are not always accurate, so be careful. Try to go on the recommendation of a forum member.

You can apply it in the cold but make sure your 3m tape is warm along with the spoiler,and your applying surface is nice and clean as per bimmette's DIY video!
Press the spoiler on nice and firm .
3m tape is very strong holding as long as your surface's are prepped good...just don't install on a stupid cold day like minus 10 or something lol.
I installed mine during cold weather last year with no issues yet...still holding strong.

+1 clean surface of car well with alcohol, warm everything up (keep the spoiler in the house for a while) and warm up the car surface with a hair dryer or put a portable heater in the garage blowing at the trunk - 3M says the part should be 60 F or higher and the adhesive is pressure sensitive and requires 15 lbs of pressure per inch to achiever proper adhesion - so press it down good!

Also, if the part is from China and sometimes other places, the 3M tape is fake and just says 3M on it - I tend to just spend the 6 bucks for a roll of real 3M tape and replace it on anything that may not be real for piece of mind.

For CF pieces, buy from a reputable vendors. A lot of ebay/amazon CF pieces bubbles and turn yellow after a while from a lot of reviews I have seen, due to the crappy resin that they use.

Thanks guys. Will place my order tomorrow for a high-kick CF spoiler. Comes to $200 CAD and im guessing another $20-30 in duties.

Oh and the seller of the $150 spoiler replied to me and it was as suspected, it is a CF spoiler, but it isn't high-kick.
