    More than likely the fitment, my Irmy bonnent extension was a perfect fit, not saying that the JDL one wont be but I think a few people on here have had issues with them; saying that Leegsi has one and hasn't had any problems as far as I know.

    At the end of the day it is up to you.

    Irmscher one is more or less a guaranteed fit whereas the cheaper JDL one will be (how can i put it?) a little more dubious!

    i believe also the Irmscher one attaches to the scuttle panel, while the JDL fixes to your bonnet. Also there is a slight design difference at the ends IIRC.

    ^^^^ as he said, the irmy one fixes to the scuttle panel and flows up the A pilars slightly, stands alot taller, the ebay one fixes to the bonnet, is made of GRP, and doesnt flow up the A pillars, bth look good, just a matter of opinion which one looks better

    if your buying one new try LMF or http://www.irmscher-bits.com

    rare to find them second hand, and not alot cheaper as there in high demand!
