    Question eBay Spoilers? Any good?

    Anyone on here bought a replica rear S3 spoiler off eBay for a 3-door A3?

    if so, was it any good? (the fit etc...)

    links & pics would be appreciated! Thanks.

    Sorry mate but they are all pretty crap. you need the real thing or dont bother...

    I could give you an e-bay one if you were nearer but i certainly wouldnt want it on my car.

    I got one, tried it, sold it and got a genuine one

    Save the middle man and get oem.

    I did a post on it, but the glorious asn search engine wont find it. Even though I even know the title of the thread!

    Thanks for the help guys.

    Anyone got a link to the correct OEM website I can order one from?

    I'm guessing they're around Ł250?

    S-Line, 3 door mate.

    I ain't too keen on the squareness of the Vortex.

    There is a 2nd hand one here for Ł70 . And you get a free rear hatch with it!

    Well worth the price just for the spoiler alone!

    Thanks. Do you know if the spoiler can be split easily?

    AFAIK nothing, I had mine on my car for over a year and it fitted lovely, I have sold the car but it is still on there and still no probs.

    You must have been lucky princess

    from people I have spoken to and threads read, 99% of people who have tried the ebay spoilers have found they have been very poor fitting, ie twisted warped, bent.

    I bought one myself, and it just wasnt right. However, I am fussy LOL!

    Perhaps it is a lottery on whether you get a good one or a friday afternooner!

    Humm strange! Mine was a perfect fit and they even did a brilliant job on the paint match.

    Hmm don't really have the money to waste buying one that's fake for it to look crap then get the real deal so might just wait.

    Anyone got a link for a genuine S-Line one at a good price?

    or should I get one from the stealers?

    Cheers. Wish they sold S-Line ones! I'm not 100% sure on the Vortex square shape.

    Do OEM have a website that sell spoilers?
