I dont so much doubt the quality of the paint as I would doubt the paint matching the rest of the car.

i got an itr replica spoiler on ebay painted, almost 2 years and still looks just like an oem fresh paint. Thats just my experience though.

Im pretty sure they dont put flex additive in the paint, so if you bump into anything expect it to crack off. They are also probably using cheap *** paint, doing a half *** job sanding it and it wont match worth a ****. You get what you pay for.

my paint matched perfectly, even though it may be a cheap job, it looks pretty good and i don't think a spoiler would be hitting anything that easily.

theres really only two names when it comes to automotive paint: PPG and DuPont.. neither of which is "cheap"

wtf are you talking about? a flex agent added to paint for a metal part. why?? the paint can flex way more than the metal can.

they claim to use sikkens. not sure if it's a lie but it's one of the best paints out there.

i actually like the sikkens, which they claim to use.

matrix paint on the other hand is an el cheapo paint but i have even used that with good results.
