Can we Talk CF non OEM Fitment?

Whats Up Guys SO like many others i want to buy so CF parts, like Spoiler, Splitters and maybe some other stuff, But with all the vendors selling CF non OEM parts and so much talk about Non OEM CF parts not fitting right some fitting right, Who has bought Non OEM CF parts that fit 100% correct (mainly CF spoiler and splitter).
I like the OEM stuff but the cost is 2 to 3 times as much, but if it fits better then it worth it, So what are Your thoughts on this?

Thanks

Yah thats kinda what i figured, $430 difference between OEM Spoiler and splitters combo, and Non OEM, but if your not happy with the Non OEM ones its worth every extra cent.

ive had good luck with my ebay front splitter but a lot of bad luck with my replica carbon fiber rear view mirror covers. Ended up returning 3 sets and buying OEM

Since the parts you want are available OEM, I wouldn't touch ANYTHING else.

Agreed. But if you did want something that wasn't available OEM, I'd connect with Lalit or Sal at ACM and go with Mode Carbon.

Nothing's guaranteed. Some have better fitment than others. People can sweat by fitment and remain loyal fans. But the truth is, and I've seen it, that even high vendors struggle to produce 100% fitment parts. It just really boils down to how much are you willing to ignore the flaws in your pieces.
