    Is it worth buying a spoiler off eBay?

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...29122&rd=1

    Seen several like that one which is primed but has anyone had any experience and if so, are they worth it?

    I want one that will look as near to the irmscher one as possible and that won't sag in the middle as I've heard some do?

    Yes, I brought one of these off ebay in march and never got around to fitting it. The spoiler is primed in a beige colour and is about half the weight of the irmscher equivilant. It feels solid and is supplied with fixings and a paper template. Instructions are in spanish.I paid £65.00 including carriage. Don't knock it, it's fine.
    I, however, with my birthday money, ordered a full irmscher colour coded bodykit from www.vauxhallspares.co.uk and an irmscher spoiler was included.
    If you are interested in buying my spoiler £40.00 including postage (the postage is around £10.00) so it's a bargain.

    I purchased my spoiler off Ebay quite some time ago and I still haven't seen one the same

    Mine is similar to the SRi Turbo / GSi one but I had mine painted and fitted before Vauxhall had even launched the SRi Turbo

    Paid about £70 IIRC and my bodyshop said that it was the best spoiler that they had fitted to date as it was perfect (No stick a flex (spelling) needed or any filler)

    This is the company that made my spoiler http://www.icctuning.com/

    We well the GSi/Turbo spoiler at £87 all in, and we've had loads of feedback that its a really good one too.

    Thanks for all the info on this. I do like the look of the GSI but I don't think it'll go with my car.

    Is the original irmscher one any good as i've been offered a couple of these now?
