    Default Steinmetz UK www rip off?

    Hi all,

    been trying to find a rear roof spoiler for my saloon so followed the link mentioned in the forums for www.steinmetzdirect.co.uk.
    Excellent I find out they do one for £173, bit steep I thought so I decide to have a little search on the internet.

    www.steinmetz.de has the same part at 173 euro, thats a big saving even allowing for postage.

    Even better Steinmetz use www.ebay.de to sell and guess what its only 119 euro plus delivery. Now my german is not that good but I m sure they say delivery to europe. Can any one read German and check for me?

    If you do a search for item 7968613183 on www.ebay.de you will find the spoiler.

    So whos ripping of who then by trying to charge £173 for an item from Germany at approx £83?
    Has any one brought from Steinmetz on the german ebay site and if so did all go well?

    I have checked other items for the Vectra C and all the prices are really good.
    This could be a new source of cut price styling!

    Possibly a typo somewhere? How do other parts compare for prices on the UK and German site?

    what do you mean with "German eBay" ... if you do a search on UK or French eBay you'll see the item too, isn't it?
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...0%3D%26fvi%3D1

    there is not much to translate...
    original new item, 4 available, fitting instructions and Tüv certificate included;
    partnumber - see my other items
    P&P for Germany, insured, is 8 euro; you need to contact the seller for postage costs outside Germany

    Hi mate have you seen the Lexmaul roof spoiler HERE? Left click & drag the bottom right of each page till you reach page 47. Regal Autosport deal with Lexmaul so might be worth giving them a ring to see what they can do. Only 84 euro's so looks abit of a bargain. Good luck mate

    Thanks Sig63, did not know you could find the item via ebay uk for another countrys ebay item. Learn something everyday. I have managed to work out how to email them and have asked for postage costs so let you all know.

    Cheers for evrybodys input so far

    Thanks Madgunner, cannot see if that spoiler is for the hatch or saloon tho as they are not the same. Will call Regal and see if they know.
