The only difference between work in Cali and anywhere else is it's more expensive here unless you DIY!

Exactly why I do things myself. Not ballin like Mariano and all u other guys he paid a small fortune to get his spoiler molded and quarters raised I spent about 500. Paint, materials and rep wald spoiler. Which buying the authentic costs more than that lol

From what I have heard even the authentic wald spoiler isn't perfect fitment. So it all comes down to how much money you wanna spend. I wouldn't spend an extra 400+ just for "slightly" better fitment or bragging rights to just say you have the authentic. But thats just me. Plus I see no sense in buying authentic if you are gonna mold it anyways.
I'm sorry, I'm going to have to completely disagree with you here.

Some people, like me, REFUSE to support knock off parts for our cars. Not only do they not fit properly, but you are putting money in the hands of people who are making a living off of copying the designers at WALD. I prefer support to the company who originally made these parts, so they can continue making parts for our cars. The only time I find it understandable for "knock offs" to be made is because the original part is no longer in production (for example, the IS300's L-Tuned front bumper, ect.)

I didn't know a good number of members had their Wald spoilers molded on the trunk. Flows so much better, especially with Wald spoiler.

MARIANO: you're definitely in a different level. Your # of awards only shows.

Not everyone has money to blow, as long as quality is good I could really care less bc when it comes down to it its just a spoiler. I wouldn't buy a replica performance part bc that would really make a difference in the performance of your car vs a spoiler, lip kit etc its just cosmetics. Who cares? Big companies are gonna keep making money regardless of whether there are other companies replicating their products or not.

And you're assuming I have money to blow? I'm a college student who has had to be very selective with my funds to have the things I have on my car. It would have been way easier for me to buy rip off HREs, rip off WALD, ect., but I didn't because it's a matter of principle of putting money into the pockets of the designers who originally created these designs.

I'm just sayin' man, don't account everyone who buys authentic as people who just want to be "show-off".

This is a good overview as to why many choose to not buy fake parts:

Either way, the Wald spoilers in this thread (authentic or not), are looking good! I'll have to post up better pictures of my fitment whenever Houston isn't underwater.
