I want to buy this but not sure if this is the right one:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/PAINTED-BMW-...item3376c92034

It says expected delivery date is estimated between Tue. Jul. 10 and Mon. Jul. 23...

Is this the one? Did you guys also get this ETA on delivery but yet received it within a week?

First impressions:

Pros:
  • good price
  • Looks quality and OEM
  • Great fit
Cons
  • Color match isn't that good for my Montego so a respray is potentially on the cards
  • There was a small scratch on it which I touched up with the touch up paint kit - hard to notice it's there but more work to do to "fill" the scratch with the paint.
  • No 3M tape on the inside as written in manual and others have reported, which means I'll have to go to shop and buy some

I think you usually get what you pay for, in this case I'd rather would have had it unpainted as that's the biggest issue as color match is poor. However I've had my trunk resprayed before so I know that could be the reason and its not entirely sellers fault color won't match.

All in all, pretty happy given the price I paid shipped and painted is still 50 bucks below of unpainted item.

Wish they made pre LCI splitters too!

I'll post pics once installed. Overall, for the money hard to beat.
I would recommend you complain to the seller. Their customer service is pretty good also. Who knows, you might get it for free...

Can someone please tell me if the link above is the correct one... It says ETA on arrival to be about a month out but since everyone seems to be getting theirs within a week, I'm wondering if I should just disregard that posted ETA.

I have the site open and ready to make the order but just want to be sure! THANKS!

Same seller everyone talks about. Yes. Just checked. It was shipped to Europe. Not to us.

Don't care about tape. More unhappy with paint mismatch.

Ah, got it. My AW match wasn't perfect either, but for the price I'm living with it.

Yeah, I can live with it at the end of the day, for the money it's a nice upgrade.

here are promised pics. Held on by tape in couple of places, fitment is very good. I'll attach it proper once car is washed etc. it does make the rear much cooler.... but sure speeds up the need to buy bigger wheels.

Yup. I don't have a foggiest idea which tape from shop to buy! I don't want to buy some heavy duty red tape as I don't know if that's ok or not (it's holding my license plate though..). So Im talking to seller now about it.

Got mine a week ago or so, really happy with it. Mine did have the 3M tape pre-installed, and took all of about 10 min to put on. No color difference from the rest of the car whatsoever as far as I can tell. Very happy for the price.

Well, seller has refunded me and I'm keeping the spoiler! I'm gonna fix the scratch with touchup paint, and will live with Colour mismatch for now. Ill buy the tape and install it properly. Glad all was sorted in timely fashion!

I never believe these stories when others write them as they just look like some advertising from an interested party. But guy was super cool, after I explained the issues and offered a full refund even though I simply asked him "what can you do".

Ah, and I told him we need some preLCI splitters and he said he'll ask his bosses.

LOL, if i had to talk to him again, I'll mention. I think given the good experience most people have with his products or service or both, people should tell him we need moar stuff.

ANOTHER HAPPY CUSTOMER!!!

Ordered late Saturday night, shipped Monday and arrived yesterday (Wednesday)! For a $59 item with free shipping from Taiwan, you can't beat that kind of service...

As for the spoiler itself, A+++! Mine is a Space Grey Metallic and the match is spot on. Packaging was great and overall it has been a great purchase/experience from this vendor.

Only thing I had to change was the built in tape it comes with. I just purchased a roll of 3M double sided automotive trim tape AND used the activator included with the spoiler. Install went flawless and the spoiler is FIRMLY secured to the trunk lid.

Just got mine tonight. It took a little longer than some to arrive, at a little over 2 weeks. The paint match is very good. I'm very happy with it, especially considering the price.
