Front Aero Lip on eBay. Buy or Not?

Has anyone bought one of these from bmwoemshop?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/PAINTED-BMW-...ce0cf9&vxp=mtr

Seems like a decent deal (compared to $430 for an oem painted one).

It's $249.

EDIT: Wow, just noticed the $188 shipping fee. So is there any other way to go besides $430 for oem painted?

You can buy the 100 ebay one and then get it painted at a local shop. The fit mint is around 80% but you cant beat the price. Cost about 150 to paint it. Make sure they paint it installed on the car so they can blend the paint. That was my mistake and now its not perfect.

I ordered for me and my friend
From eBay seller I think "bayson"
And it was the cheapest one
About 200$ shipped (to israel so it was expensive )
And the item is great
So I do recommend
Also recommend paint it after u get it
Don't buy painted

I could use it too. I found the bayson store, but I don't think he has any lips for e90/2s.

Np heres the link to the one I purchased: http://www.ebay.com/itm/07-08-09-10-...046166&vxp=mtr

Here is a picture of it currently on my car. It looks good from the pic but the sides don't sit flush as I need to add more 3 m tape and sand the inside of the bumper.

It looks good in that pic. I'm starting to wonder if its worth just shelling out the $430 for the oem from JBSPEED and not having to worry about paint and fitment.

The spoiler from JBSpeed is NOT OEM - it is a rep also.

Anytime you see the following in the description:

Quote:
BMW OEM Style Front Lip For E92/E93 Pre LCI (PP Material)
OEM Style means it looks like OEM - not that it is

If you want rep spoiler - JGMods have the BEST fitment & paint

http://www.jgmods.com/index.php/bmw/...r-e92-e93.html

Spoiler price is $200 unpainted/$345 painted


OEM will run you $290 + $70 shipping (primed), $295+$220+$70 - $25Promo=$490 (painted) @ Tischer

http://www.getbmwparts.com/partlocat...catalogid=4462

So for $60 more than the JBSpeed price you'll get an OEM spoiler painted by BMW

You never paint add-on spoilers, side skirts, bumpers while installed. Neither BMW or any other reputable paint shop will paint this way - the parts should be painted seperate from car, then installed.

Paint matching has nothing to do with whether part is installed or not - it has to do with the quality of the person painting. BMW has painted my hood, front bumper, rear bumper, side skirts, & aero spoiler - all OFF the car & the paint matches perfectly
