I would spend the extra money on the real deal from AM. If something is up, they'll take care of it. The eBay seller, you really don't know.

Plus you don't know if the molding of the spoiler is off and you might have fitment issues. Not to mention the paint match may or may not be correct.

While I bought one from AM and it is fairly decent, the only "real deal" is from Ford. The AM versions are painted all over while the bottom of the Ford versions are black.

I don't believe in pre-painted parts that go through an assembly line. Bought my GT500 spoiler for $200 and had my painter paint+install it for $300 (custom OEM paint scheme). Came out flawless, perfect match and no hassle.

On my V6 oh man, I had like 3 prepainted parts on the car at one point and someone hit my car and had to have body work done. My painter ended up repainting all of my prepainted parts because they either didn't match or paint quality (orange peel) wasn't up to his standards.

OEM parts are painted on an assembly line...

I only have prepainted mirror covers as far past aftermarket painted parts go, the paint is perfect. I can't same the same for the fitment of the plastic itself but that's beside the point.

That spoiler doesn't look right and looks cheap. Where the 4 base posts meet the spoiler it looks like they are 2 different pieces. I wouldn't get the spoiler.
Mine is the AM spoiler and I couldn't be happier with it. While it is not the same as OEM (totally GB no black) I love it and couldn't be happier with it. May look into getting the posts painted black when I get more paint work done.

You're correct. But they're all painted at once for an exact color match. I should of said an aftermarket assembly line.

The color matches I'm referring to the deepness of the paint.
