eBay splitter/diffusers

Hi guys,

Apologies if in wrong thread, anyone got any experience of the above off eBay? Seen a few options but unsure which to go for.

Any previous knowledge would be appreciated.

I believe many can be hit & miss TBH.
The best way around the extortionate prices of OEM carbon is to find a UK specialist as a compromise, so you get the quality at more reasonable cost.
Have a look at Carbonwurks & M3ntal performance (as an example, there will be others, but these come well recommended).

Should have mentioned..... Also consider joining Cutters, there's much, much more activity on that forum as it's UK only. This UK section is ok, don't get me wrong, but not a busy place.... And there's always lots of goodies for sale on Cutters.

I saw that post but all replies seemed to be US orientated, may have missed some Brit ones, will have another look though. Much appreciated

Just curious. Why does it matter if it's a US or Brit thread? All of these "products" are coming from China anyway. It's not like you guys have different F8x cars. If it fits a US car it's gonna fit a Brit car.

Just wanted to add I found a wallet I like from a Brit company (Nodus) and I'm gonna order it. It's not like I'm looking for an "American" version. Either way Good Luck.

You have eBay.com we have eBay.co.uk different shipping etc. I work in Iraq and get home for 3 weeks at a time 3 times a year, I prefer to buy from UK sellers so itís not sat outside my house for weeks on end, I buy everything just before I get back, China postage is a tadge hit and miss. Let me know about the wallet, Iím visiting the states in Dec, Iíll bring it with me.

Thanks for your thoughts though.

Gotcha. Makes sense. I ordered direct from AliExpress but it's hit or miss when they will ship out the items so you will still be in the same situation with the parts sitting in front of your house.

Good luck man.
