    Replica gsi spoilers... quality?

    Hi, looking for a gsi/sri-t spoiler for my prodrive kitted sri, struggling to get a genuine one second hand, (2 on here, but ive been beaten to both) so looking at some fibreglass replica ones on ebay..

    My first mk4 1.8 sport had a replica spoiler on it, and the quality was superb, exact cast of the genuine one, and wasnt heavy like some f/g ones. I couldnt find any difference other than the vauxhall markings on there mould must have been sanded off/smoothed out. (but the spoiler came with the car, so dont know its origins)

    Secondly, where can i find my paint code?? Looked on the door shut sticker but couldnt see anything... its a 2003 sri in star silver.

    mines a replica m8! it is ok couple of little things i noticed but generally ok! paid £60 inc delivery for it and £80 painted and fitted!

    mines star silver 3 ( code is z157 ) on a 54 plate. my code was the door shut sticker in the bottom left hand corner of the sticker!

    try lookin at the colour chart at the top if this section m8, it will be either 1 of 3 codes!

    Does anyone have a picture of a genuine, AND a replica next to eachother?
    As I'm sure the replicas have more of a "flick" to them at the top
