    Hi.
    I ordered a spoiler from eBay and it arrived today snapped in half.. also the wires that are molded inside the spoiler for the rear light are snapped which won't be an easy fix..
    I have written to the guy who sold it but i have bought a few things from him and he appears to be fair, i am not sure i want to send it back as i only paid a small amount of money for it...
    Is there any way i can repair it? if so what would you use?/ may be an apoxy glue or something??
    It appears to be injection molded dense foam.. i am thinking of drilling a few small holes and pinning it from each side of the break and then glueing it together but not sure what type of glue to use??
    Cheers.

    Mmm, I know what you're saying and everybody loves a bargain but there will be other spoilers, I reckon I'd send it back.

    Frustrating though is'nt it? I got a genuine AC Schnitzer window spoiler for mine for next to nothing, right colour too. When it arrived it was for a saloon, damn.

    Your right it's super annoying, i looked for ages and finally found a Montreal Blue M3 spoiler for a saloon that i did not have to paint or anything, i looked forward to it's delivery since last week and it arrives snapped today... Really ruined my week.. never mind, will have to wait till next year now for another as Christmas is here and i am skint now...
