    is this?

    found this prodrive replica rear splitter, dont think its actually the one on the car picture, but it is showing a single exit exhaust on the car, but the actual pic of the splitter, do people think its for the single or twin exhaust as it looks like a slightly bigger gap for the exhaust?? or is it my eyes??

    It's not the one from the car picture. NGK Tuning have a habit of stealing pictures off of here and watermarking them. That pic was from the AOC stand at billing. Their listing for their mk5 spoilers show pics of 2 members cars, which both have factory fitted spoilers.

    For this reason alone, I wouldn't buy from them. Get yourself a decent ABS Plastic replica from LMF

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    The important bit is the bracketry and fitting kit - without that even a genuine prodrive one is floppy and very easy to dislodge.

    I doubt you'll get anything like that with a replica, which incidentally looks twisted in the photo... not a good place to start from

    also forgot to say the gap is bigger then the one in the photo but apart from that i would reccomend it,as for quality i bought a irmscher replica front splitter and no one can tell the difference but its up 2 u bud and after 5days it still sits perfet

    the one i fitted is a genuine one and when you come to fit it the quality shows. The fitting kit is quality and the splitter once one is as solid as a rock. You get full instructions with it too. That replica one is GRP which is essentially fiberglass so i wouldnt reccomend it
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it

    yeh of course the genuine one is 10x better but my front spliittter is fibre glass and has took quite a few knocks and has barely marked it and u cant tell the difference once its primed and painted but different people prefere genuine products but i would reccomend it
