    Having bought a sport and not an s line the one thing thats majorly missing is a spoiler! After some google and ebay searching I came across real carbon fibre oettinger copy from singapore but being a bit of a believer in you get what you pay for I was warey. Some more googling and reading I decided to take a punt, it saved painting costs and as my car is lava grey it wouldnt be to noticable. After a month to get delivered I was pretty shocked when it arrived as its perfect so heres some pics for anyone thinking of getting one but worried

    Interested to see how it holds up to sunlight & weathering, most of the cheaper ones I've seen have started fading and had some small problems with the lacquer and clear coat. But on something like a spoiler with such a small area i'm thinking its probly not going to. I've only seen it on doors/bonnets/roof panels. Keep us updated, looks really good!

    give it coat of sealant or wax with UV protection and that may help or pre fit get it laquered.

    Like that. What was the cost? I have a lava grey 3 door and would love a spoiler for that.

    That's a shame. Nice spoiler for the money.
