Cheap EBay lips/spats etc

Are these cheap eBay eBay front lips, rear spats and side skirts of any good? Anyone have any experience with them? Wanna get a set of the tS style pieces for my 19 BRZ and Iím exploring my options.. OE is always nice and itís coming out to about a 1.5k for the front lip, side skirts and the rear spats and if I can get the eBay stuff and save more than have.. itíll be awesome but at the same time donít want shyty stuff.

I don’t know about ebay but I would stay away from reps in general. Costs more to paint due to poor surface. Horrible fitment, uneven edges

The ones I've seen from eBay have pretty bad fitment issues or require much more effort to install.

Thanks gents.. I guess I’ll try and see the best price I can get on the OE stuff. Anyone here that sells the OE stuff cheaper than the list price on Subaru?

My Ikon PU lip needed a bunch of shaping and sanding. It still was warped and never fit right. I tore it half way off pulling into a parking lot, then just took it the rest of the way off with tools that I keep in my trunk.

I paid $89 shipped + $40 for two cans of Scion D6S automotive spray paint, adheasion promotor, primer, clear, sandpaper, cleaning solvent, etc...

It was a fun project, I learned some things. Like, even with only lowering my car 1" with Eibach prokit springs, the lip made the car low enough I had to go into driveways at a steep angle. For me, I would have been more upset to destroy an expensive lip, than how dissapointed I was about my $130 learning experience.

My Ikon PU sideskirts needed a little bit of sanding and fit great. I paid $99 for the pair shipped. Still happy with them.

Cheap parts are a bit of a gamble.

I tried out an authentic HT Auto lip kit a few years ago. Fitment was spot on and PERFECT. I bought a replica HT Auto lip off of amazon after smashing the HT Auto lip, and the fitment was pretty bad. So bad that I didn't bother putting it on after smashing the HT Auto lip. That's my experience...

If you decide to go with OEM Subaru, feel free to PM me with the part numbers and your postal code and I'll get you a quote and check availability for you!
