I have to say now that its on and force fit to the car it looks pretty swell but I cannot recommend the Genuine Vorsteiner lip to the faint of heart of the meagerly equipped installer. Vorsteiner quality in terms of fit and finish simply isn't what it used to be apparently. The supplied mounting hardware was junk and completely inadequate to hold the lip to the car, screws simply pulled out under the stress of the lip pulled, forced into position. Some serious business screws with nut plates inside the bumper solved that problem, along with a length of rubber 3M trim finisher across the upper section of the lip where it meets the bumper to transition the edge of the carbon fiber.

"fit" with the transitional rubber trim is pretty decent if you can call it that.

Quality of the carbon weave, layup and general finishing is certainly higher quality than the eBay replicas. Fit however, honestly and seriously, isn't much better. The replica lips lack the complete undertray though, and instead just have some cheese ball tabs to screw through into the bumper.
