    Buy them from JSK Racing, they post on Aliexpress, top class and perfect fit, I bought V10 blades plus lots of other bits from them all were good.

    I recently ordered some JSK CF parts. Janice is a pleasure to deal with, BUT I will say the fitment of the spoiler base was a little disappointing. Essentially it requires ~2 hour of labor to shave the underside of the base to mount flush with the vehicle. JSK has not been the easiest to deal with particularly as I asked for either a new base or reimbursement for 2 hours of labor to ensure there is no rise on the fitment of the base flush with the car.

    I've worked in China.... reimbursement isn't likely to happen. Cash going in no problem, cash going out... language problem.

    Haven't bought a side blade but other carbon parts before from JSKracing, quality is quite good but not the same, when you compare it side by side with OEM or other reputable brands. Fitment isn't 100%, it was always a few mm off and felt heavier, like a carbon overlay and not fully carbon fibre.

    I took a close up previously of each brand.

    This wasn't my experience, but you never know if one shift in the factory is better than another !!!!!!!!!!!! as for fitment, mirrors/blades/splitter/diffuser/front side grills 1000% spot on.

    My carbon fiber engine bay parts were 100% spot on as well.
