i hear lorinser still sells it so you can get it directly from them for abuot $500....

but i just found another one on ebay, but its from the same fuker that sells the shitty fittin carlsson bumpers..........

in regards to fitment...with the replica i had (or have somewhere) ..when u use the sticky tape stuff that you're supposed to for it, it will come off from one side or maybe even both......i didnt want it to fly off so i just took it off lol.....i was going to try to put it on with epoxy glue this time but now i cant even find it...

I would use some window glue and then use big straps to hold it down while the glue cured. There is a post here somewhere, where a guy used big straps and he strapped it down from the frame. I'll try to look for it.

Edit: I found the PICS!!!

thanks....$514+S&H..damn...i donooo lol..i think ima jus try waitin around for a replica n force it on
i only got it because the ebay one wouldn't fit right. got tired of [email protected]#kin with it!!!
also, the replica is made out of fiber glass and it has these waves in it, it isn't consistent with the rest of the cars finish.
but from 10 feet away you cant tell the difference between the two.

got mine (Lorinser) from this forum's classifieds (CLK wreck). Put on with black silicone glue. It fits so well that all I needed was masking tape until it set. Has been on with no problem for 2 years. Paid $180. Keep looking on ebay and classifieds.

so i took your advise and looked on ebay just now. i found (and bought with a quickness) a Lorinser (real Lorinser) decklid spoiler to match my roof spoiler for $325 shipped. thats the same price this one seller sells his replica Lorinser decklid spoilers painted. and this thiing was coincidentally painted white (just like my car)!!! it doesn't come with 3m tape either, it comes with this german glue just like my roof spoiler came with (that stuff doesn't come off).:D

I bought one Ebay and it came stamped LORINSER, it probably isn't a lorinser but a replica, but it definately has the lorinser Stamp in it. I checked it for fitment and it seems to fit perfect. We'll see its getting painted later today.

It looks great, but I've got a dumb question.

How do you clean the window under there? Doesn't it get pretty dirty?

the whole wing sits flush against the window..theres no reaching underneath...the whole thing makes contact with the glass.......u just clean it first to achieve the best adherence..
