Who has an ECS Lip Spoiler?

Who has one and how do you like it? Is it hard to tell the difference between it and one from the M3? Reason I ask is because they are on sale for like $30 now.

I have one...it's not bad for the price at all. I prefer the one with rounded edges, but without them being right next to one another its hard to tell a difference. I had my fiance's brother paint it for free with some left over paint I had from another job so I knew I was getting a quality paint job and only spent $30

If you don't have a quality paint hookup I'd just go with the ebay one as long as others have had good experiences.

The spoiler lip on an m3 is longer then on a sedan.
I got mine through Turner and like it a lot.
The only issue was some tiny pin hole sized divets at one corner of the lip.

I bought it from that one. Pretty good.
Becareful the FedEx charges broker fee, they sent a mail demanding me $18 to pay after they delivered. I don't give a f*ck.

I thought they collect that on delivery, how did you get away with it?

How would ge go about getting any info on this broker fee b.s.? That would suck to get it here for the shipping service to try and tell me I owe them another $20. Anyone else had this happen to them?
