how to tell a real mugen from fake?

There is a guy near me selling a mugen wing for the 5th gen, he lives not even 15 minutes away so saturday I might go check it out, he wants 125$, last I checked if thats a real mugen wing its worth quite a bit more.

Is there anyway to tell real mugen from fake? If its real I am gonna buy it and make profit!

Re: how to tell a real mugen from fake?

if its genuine, thats a RIDIC deal!!


i'm not positive, but i'm pretty sure it should have a metal mugen "plaque" riveted to the underside of the spoiler. someone correct me if i'm wrong.

Re: how to tell a real mugen from fake?

i believe the replicas do not come with LED lights in the back..

edit: yep they do not have it, you can look for yourself..any mugen replica are known as "Techno R" from VIS...thats the only brand i looked at though, but wings west is VIS..and anything else is most likely crap quality so.........

cliff notes/
LEDS IN BACK = AUTHENTIC!

Re: how to tell a real mugen from fake?

The quickest way to tell is look at the fastening system. If it's held on with clips to the trunk lid, then it's genuine. Snap that up quicksmart, or send me his details and I will.

If it's held in with screws through the trunk lid (like the OEM spoiler) then it's a replica.

I've seen replicas with LED lights in the back. I had the option of light or no light when I ordered mine.

dude........first off its a spoiler not a front clip. we understand you dont like jdm parts..but if your post isn't helping the OP why did you bother stating this? everyone is entitled to there own opinion but thats why theres an off topic on this forum.

sorry if im coming out to be a d!ck.
