    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.

    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 £250? :bye:

    S-Line, 3 door mate.

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

    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.
    Like you say I am a lucky princess :)

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

    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?
