If the Rear Spoiler is available in plastic we would prefer that but the high level wings will usually be made from metal
Audi R8 Rear Spoilers will tend to be big in size so bear this in mind when ordering. If ordering from outside your country there may be customs to be paid on arrival
For large items like this we would try to get something from the same country/customs union if at all possible

A great comment in this video
For the ones asking about the best tape to use, I've done some very thorough reserach and this is what I've found.
(Of course there are many brands and models of tape, but this is my finding that most original equipment manufacturers are using)
3M VHB 5952 Or 5956
Both are available in 12,7 or 19mm width.
5952 is 1,1mm thick
5956 is 1.5mm thick.
The thinner tape works great for brand original accessories and gives a near invisible seam.
Thicker is good for 3rd party accessories where fitment sometimes can be less than absolutely perfect and the thicker tape fills the gap so to speak.
