FAKE High Spoiler

Spotted this on eBay.

Doesn't say in the description its a copy but It is.

You can tell by the mounting points not having the treaded rod to hold it and the 3rd brake light is different.

The title says genuine, if it isn't they are fibbing lol
Suffers from CDO! It's the same as OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order, as they should be.

On Ebay? Why, I've never heard of such a thing! ;)
Some say the Hyundai coupe isn't as fast as it looks, but how many road cars can do 250 mph?

It doesn't actually call it a high or wild spoiler :confusion-shrug: . It calls it a raised spoiler which I suppose they all are :think: . It also says it's silver but later on lists it as unpainted. Buyer beware :doh:

Where is the best place to get the high spoiler from which easily fits, as you see so many advertised, but not sure if they are 100 percent compatible

Trying to find a genuine one is like trying to find rocking horse poo now unless your lucky.

I like the way you sum it up. Seen a few advertised on Ebay, but wasn't sure if they are fully compatible, although they say suitable for Hyundai Coupe. Don't really wanted to be fiddling around with different holes etc, but looks like I might have to now.

Will have to choose carefully when I go ahead and buy one.

Don't worry, I intend to take my time. In no rush to do it till the warmer weather starts anyway so will certainly give it plenty of thought and investigation.
