R170 Boot Lip Spoiler advice please

I was browsing ebay for bits and pieces for my 2001 SLK and came across this...

Painted For Mercedes-Benz R170 Boot lip spoiler Slk 98 05 | eBay

The sellers feedback looks pretty good given the volume of sales.

My only concern is the lack of photos to show what it will look like.

Has anyone bought a R170 spoiler from this seller and can comment on looks/quality?

Anyone recommend any other (cheap) alternatives?

Hi,

I bought similar spoiler for the seller below

Custom Painted Rear Trunk Boot Lip Spoiler for Mercedes R170 SLK Class 98 04 | eBay

It came painted to match my car over all it was excellent I like the minimal look and it looks very nice but it does not wrap around the third light like R171 ones but you really can not beat the price . It is installed using 3m tape and it is holding very well so far but be careful once it is in you can not move it I would say it is two man job to get the perfect alignment (belive me )

I think this cosmetic piece is either to your liking or not based on personal taste. I don't think it needs the piece as I like the look without and I would be concerned about trapped water eventually causing rust in that area.

Thanks for replying. Interesting to hear that it doesn't wrap round the centre brake light. I've seen a more expensive version on ebay which does, and that style is what I'm after but at a cheaper cost!
