    Anyone bought one of these and have any input? I'd like a spoiler, but even the $600ish that they go for here in the Parts section seems too high for me to justify.

    I'm seeing them from 150-200 on ebay, "genuine OEM quality" "bid with confidence" type stuff. In the past I've had both good and bad luck with these types of purchases. Anyone have experience?

    I've installed one of these. They are glossy, vs. the matte look on the OEM, but otherwise are of very high quality.

    The ONLY caveat to installing them is that the edges sometimes want to pop up. When you install them, use not only 3M double-sided tape, but some silicone glue on the ends and you should be fine.

    I also put about 50lbs of textbooks on each end of the spoiler after gluing and didn't move the car for 24h. But I'm known to be a bit Type A about stuff like that. :D
