    Default Carbon spoiler with marks

    Hey!

    I'm planning on buying this spoiler for my EP3 but there are white marks on it.

    Does anybody know what marks that could be?
    Is it possible to remove them in some way?

    Thanks in advance!

    Looks like whatever it is, is under the lacquer/clear coat and possibly the weave.

    Hmm, doesn't sound so good. I guess it isn't as easy of a fix as for example the lacquer fading?

    If it's the weave, it's a manufacturing fault and it won't be repairable.

    Alright, I need to think about if I want to buy it or not as I don't want to buy it and then it gets worse.

    Thanks for the answer!

    Do you know if the marks will get worse and/or will them increase in different spots on the spoiler?

    No idea. If it's under the lacquer it won't get any worse. If it's on that layer though there is every chance it can.

    According to the seller, its the weave that is damaged and according to him it hasn't got any worse the time he has owned it and the only thing holding me back is if I buy it and it gets worse over time :/
