How certain are you of the metal used? As on Amazon and DPM's websites it says they are constructed from laser cut FE360 steel

You are right. I looked on the HP of the Manufacture and it is: Material FE360 Steel
Was my fault. I thought ive read "Aluminium" on another Website. Dont remember where, but its wrong.

But is significant lighter than the Original, for sure!

True, but it would be even lighter if constructed from aluminium, like most tail tidies are. My other concern would be potential stone chips on the underside going rusty with the steel construction.

Of course tail-tidies made of Aluminium are lighter!
But this one for me is the bestlooking so far, that works with our big german License Plates. And i drove more than 3.000 km with this tidy and there is not a single scratch fom Stone Chips

It is the best looking I agree, hence why I was a little disappointed the manufacturers had used steel. We also have big plates here in the UK, they make the back end of bikes look ugly!
