Looking for an after market SLK32 type tail fin/spoiler

I've been searching for a good after market trunk lip fin/spoiler. I would like to get one that is just like an original one found on the SLK32. I see lots of options on Ebay, but it's hard to tell how good they are. I was wondering if anybody here has found and purchased one, if so, I would greatly appreciate it if you would point me in the right direction, thanks!

I just added this lip spoiler (top one) to my car:

ForMyMercedes.com

I bought a used one off of Ebay, which was a lot cheaper. However, it was silver. I paid a friend of a friend $50 to custom match my paint color and install it. Looks great. IMHO, it adds a very subtle design element to the back of the car. I plan on taking some pics soon if you'd like to see how it turned out.

Are the ones on ebay a good / close replica of the SLK32, or rather different?

Mine was an OEM spoiler from a 2003 SLK32. It was from a silver car. It had some scuffs and scratches, but it looks great after it was repainted to match my car.

Spoilers aren't really my taste but those lip spoilers look tempting!

Here's mine after restoration and a paint match. I've also added a new chrome tail pipe to my car and window tinting. I do really like the look of the lip spoiler after installation.
