Vehicle: F82 M4
Part: Rear Lip Spoiler - M Performance style
Brand: No idea - Taiwan Special
Link, eBay seller, item number: http://www.ebay.com/itm/321909413400
Fitment 1-10(best), reason for score: 10
Quality 1-10(best), reason for score: solid 8-9
Item price: $185 US
Shipping price: Free Shipping
Item location: Taiwan

Fitment was spot on. Really great work. No crinkles or bunching of the weave. The weave is a bit larger than the roof, but nowhere near as large as the front engine compartment strut brace. Finish is really nice with no pinholes, packing was fantastic, shipping took less than a week from Taiwan to Seattle. Shipped Fedex, and the eBay auction claimed a month to deliver.

Overall excellent purchase for me. No complaints at all except one. Did not come with 3M adhesive tape. I went to the autoparts store and got that myself.

Edit: for pictures; the ones in the auction are 100% accurate.

Vehicle: F80 M3

Part: V-style front lip + P- Style Diffuser

Brand: Replica (Tawian)

Link, eBay seller, item number: http://www.ebay.com/itm/291541680913...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Fitment 1-10(best), reason for score: Diffuser 9/10, Lip 8/10
-There is a slight imperfection on the diffuser, but it's barely noticeable. Fits similar to the OEM diffuser that is there, quite good fit. The lip was a bit hard to get on and we had to drill holes to get it to fit under (although it did fit into three of the OEM screws under the bumper). Fitment is less than perfect, but is also barely noticeable. For the price, the ratings are fare imo!

(I have a ModeCarbon rear spoiler and that is true CF and fits like a glove! That being said, it was almost the same price as both of these pieces combined. Apples to Oranges.)

Quality 1-10(best), reason for score: Diffuser 9/10, Lip 7/10
-Again, for the price, this can't be beat. They are plastic with carbon coating. I was warned it might be wrap, but the carbon replica was quite nice. The lip is a bit flimsier than the diffuser, but they are both lightweight and durable. Again, the price helps me give the items higher ratings. Can't be compared to full CF or a brand name, but really good for what it is (especially considering the lip is going to get scraped up like every day...)

Item price: $699 (for both combined)

Shipping price: $90

Item location: Whittier, CA (after being shipped from Taiwan)

Looks really good! Too bad they don't sell rear diffusers.

Carbon-Fiber-3D-Style-Rear-Spoiler-for-BMW-F82-M4

Vehicle: M4 (F82)
Part: 3D-Style-Rear-Spoiler
Brand: ?
Link:http://www.ebay.com/itm/262326476934...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
eBay seller: bestqc2014
Fitment 1-10(best), reason for score: 10 Fits like a glove
Quality 1-10(best), reason for score: 9 exposed carbon fiber looks great, but unfinished carbon inside the spoiler could be cleaner
Item price: $250.00
Shipping price: $50.00
Item location: Taiwan

Was looking on eBay and this wing really caught my interest. like many of you i was very unsure to buy this or not because of fitment/quality issues. In the end i am very happy i purchased the wing, it looks great and fitment/quality is top notch. Shipping was really fast, took less then a week. Seller used FedEx, package was nicely boxed and bubble wrapped.

Installation was pretty easy. The item did not come with double sided tape, so i bought some from home depot for less then $10.00. One item that really helped installation is the suction cup clamps, you can see them in some of the pictures. I Just left the suction cups on for a couple hours after installation so the adhesive could bond very good.

Here are some pics of the final install:
