The OEM one is a hollow CF piece. Weighs almost nothing. The ebay ones are a solid piece, weighs more, but its minimal. Whether it has any real CF at all is a mystery. Also, the OEM one sticks up a little higher. Ebay one is more flat. I'd say in-between the factory lip spoiler and the OEM performance one. I've seen both, and both look good. In terms of durability, the previous owner had it on for a little over a year and it looks brand new still. If you're on a budget, I don't see a problem with the Ebay one. If you can afford it, go OEM like Tech said.

EDIT: The person also attached it using the supplied 3M tape. I know Betalink is recommended, but it might be overkill. Remember reading somewhere that somebody tried to steal the spoiler off of an M3 and it was put on by Betalink. The crook damaged the trunk because the Betalink was so damn strong.

EDIT 2: Just noticed you were looking at a Ebay painted one. Obviously no CF at all lol

Thank you very much.

I know that i look at a painted one.

This is not the problem.

I just want a Spoiler which sticks high up and not flat.

We offer both the replica and the OEM but we usually tell customers that with the rep you're getting 3/4 of the fitment for 1/2 the price. If you're ok with that then go for it but if you want flawless fitment and quality OEM is worth the extra $$ all day.

the only issue with replicas are they dont have the high kit like the oem one. The one I found which I believe is no longer made was exact replica.. my two cents

Slightly off topic but a good time to get an aftermarket lip/spoiler would be after an accident. Since the body shop is fixing the body anyways...they can make the aftermarket stuff fit correctly. Just saying
