    i really don't understand why a piece of plastic is sooooo expensive. probably you are paying on how great your car would look!

    in that case! it's worth every penny, dollar for it!

    There are replica ones about, but most of them don't look as nice as the Irmscher one IMO.

    Only other bet is to wait for one to turn up 2nd hand, which is a pretty rare occasion.

    You are paying for how well the Irmscher item fits.
    All you need to do is paint it & screw it into place.
    The cheaper fibreglass copies mostly need work done to tidy them up & make them fit properly before you get them painted, so end up costing you more in labour.

    IIRC lee-gsi has a replica on his coupe and it looks awesome, you'd be hard pressed to tell it from the original Irmscher item. Look for pics in the auto-biographys or his garage.
