Thieves-How much would you pay 4 repairs

Some lowlife piece of garbage tried to get into the back of my pursuit 250 by putting a hell of a lot of upward force on the rear wing. The hard cover was locked and they didn't get in but there is some reasonable damage to the spoiler. I rang a ford dealer and if he looked it up right the spoiler (hard cover sold seperate and actually a lot cheaper) is a mere $2200 unpainted. "Its a genuine FPV thing you see" said the dealer. Surely they made enough on these at $58000 on the road. Do you all think I should get the genuine FPV item or an after market identical $320 that when painted doen't say FPV.


Good news I rang another dealer and he said that he is pretty sure the BA wing is the same and he looked it up and it even has an AU part number. Going to take it down and match it up to be sure.

Price$495 painted. They don't make my colour but one similar to get repainted. Talk about FPV profiteering.

Thanks for answering a question he didn't ask.

I'd go the $320 route and do your best to make it look exactly like an FPV item.

Realistically you're looking at about $3k to supply, spray and fit a replacement FPV spoiler.

They have a problem with cracking along the back edge of the wing and I had mine repaced under warranty.
In fact its the same wing from The AuIII Pursuit Ute to current, even the F6 has the same wing.....The new Super Pursuit has a different wing with a 3rd leg and Id say that would help to stop it from cracking along that back edge.
I'd Go for warranty as they all crack and Im sure they wont argue about it as its quite common ..Good luck.
