Looks good. Is that the CS or the M Performance spoiler? I'm having a hard time deciding which to pick up

It's the CS style, just crappy photos so hard to tell.

I ordered a v-style rear spoiler and front splitters from Bulbxpert as heís got great reviews here.

But honestly iím quite dissapointed about the quality.

The rear spoiler has 2 defects in the Carbon and at one point the clearcoat was damaged and retouched with Clearcoat.The edges of the spoiler are also lifting a bit up at the sides...

He offered me a refund of 25USD what i accepted.

Now this week i received the front splitters.I test fitted them as was happy when i put the first one on.Perfect fitment.My happienes was over fast when i put on the other side.
Doesnít fit at all and has a huge gap between grille and splitter. 😩

I also bought from bulbexpert, the right one fit perfectly but the left one I had to do quite a bit of trimming to get it to fit nicely without any gaps.

use vinyl, black tape or cfc to hide the gap. I had a similar fitment issue. Just put a strip of vylin along the exposed edge and you won't be to see the gap unless you are looking for it with a magnifying glass.

hope this helps

Trimming wonít help for me, as itís just made too small.

Kind of silly if the other side fits perfect and the other has black vinyl under it.This is the good side.
As you see big difference ...

I'm assuming that nobody ran into my front lip issue and made it work?

I suggest no one buy from BatStyling Store on Aliexpress. After contacting them and showing them pictures of my attempted install of their diffuser, they replied that it's a "small deviation and it fits the car", and haven't responded since. I've opened a dispute on Aliexpress.

Same I already opened a dispute about how the clear coats were cracked and the side extensions did not align at all. The bowing is so bad you clearly noticed it. Rather get a good chunk of my money back.

Purchased two items from AliExpress- had great luck
3 piece V style diffuser from seller HSPEED KSLINE
-very good quality with minor gaps near the center diffuser. Hardly noticed unless pointed out

Also purchase carbon upper splitters from seller JC SPORTLINE OFFICIAL STORE
These were in great shape and had perfect fitment. Highly recommended

It seems like this is the best bet to purchase the 3pc from AliExpress- I think there are a handful of people here that have the one from this seller and nothing but positive so far.

Indeed it's the same vendor. I ended up agreeing to the 80 dollar refund. Not really trying to deal with the hassle. Did minor work to bend the extensions to sit more flush. Looks decent but you can tell it's not perfect fitment when you're super close up (face up on the diffuser).

Well damn. Unfortunately I don't foresee putting mine to any use- it looks like crap on the car. I've asked for a full refund in my dispute, the seller has yet to reply to the dispute or my last messages.

Yup. Mine should be here next week. I'll let you guys know how it is.

Yeah I saw your mid diffuser... they legit fucked that up. I think we just got a bad batch but hopefully you get your refund. If they push it through you should go the vendor everyone else seem to had good reviews on. Likely you'll need to also send in a video of the piece etc to further enhance your reasoning. They gave me an opportunity to get full refund if i bring back the item but I don't want to deal with the hassle on that.


Good luck man! The dispute center works wonders since its AliExpress being the middle man between both of us.

Aliexpress asked for video and pics, which I just provided. The seller responded with $0 and they "don't accept used products back", which is laughable. If Aliexpress doesn't resolve, I'll contact Amex for a charge back. I'll most likely purchase from the other seller.

Damn... that's bad service forsure. I'd suggest from another site at that point. That's if aliexpress decides to ban your account for your chargeback. Don't know if they would do that but it could be a possibility. Hopefully it works out for you man.

Purchased from bulbxpert on eBay.
Got all 3 pieces for a total of around 900.
Had a shop install them, they said they all fit pretty well.
Quality seems excellent, I am very happy with how the parts look.
