Hate to say this, but run don't walk, from the afformentioned aftermarket supplier in your post!

I don't think they like selling their products, and the service is so greatly subpar compared to anything else out there. Product fit and finish leaves much to be desired as well. (Side skirts & RS tail). I heard the front splitters are OK if you can get them to actually respond and sell you a set...

GT3 Tek and Better Bodies, the last time I checked, share the same address. GT3 Tek is a former sponsor here, but they were rightfully booted because of rampant quality and customer service issues. I have nine documented cases from Rennlisters who had problems. Additionally, GT3 Tek was using photos of cars that had authentic/factory RS parts and were using them to advertise their products. Outright fraud on so many levels.

Joel Bowman started GT3 Tek and had a reputation of delivering very nice products. When he sold the business, things went downhill.

The fitment and finish on the OE RS kit is great as expected. I also started with RS GT3tek splitters and they are comparable. The fit on those did take some extra effort to get the tabs to set properly in the bumper but once you do some basic Dremel sanding then they are fine.

I also saw a getty RS wing and could not see much difference between my OE one other than the inner cavity being enclosed vs open.

As for the sides the OE ones are where the difference are. The tabs on the sides are these tiny plastic tabs that make a tight fit into the rocker. They are molded in a certain angle and have a divot that engage the side into the rocker to make a nice tight fit minimizing the seam.

The city morgue, you'll pay a little extra under the table and the freshness can't be guaranteed but if you are looking for a 20-year-old's parts it's a good option.
