The $89 BMW performance spoiler thread!

Hello I picked up this spoiler on E bay for 89 bucks painted and shipped, very happy with the fit and color match and you cant beat the price, shipping was a little over a week form taiwan, now on to the pics.

For 89 bucks, that doesn't look bad at all. How much was it + shipping?

I like it!

But, I'm ignorant about these things... How is it installed? Does it use something like double sided tape, or does it require a more professional installation?

They include a roll of 3M double sided tape, alcohol prep pad, adhesive glue and a instruction guide, install took less than 1 minute, spoiler sits right in place without any need for flexing spoiler, I am really happy with it.

Ok, this sound stupid cheap. It's worth it just to try it out. Heck, it's worth it to buy several of them and give them away. Or use as back up. haha.

nice! what size are your wheels? I have the same combo with 18" wheels and a painted OEM spoiler on order. I'll post pics later this week to compare ($330/shipped).

How did you fit 17" wheels over 335i M-sport brakes?

17's clear no problem on U.S spec 335i M Sport brakes, we don't get the larger rotors like the rest of the world.

But more importantly are the profile of the tire's which is 225 55 17 which clears the struts, the recommended size is 225 50 17 and my current set up is the same size found on the base wheels of a F10 528i and provides a taller profile of 26.7 inches vs 25.9 (stock 225 45 18), some of the benefits are higher ground clearance for the snow and greater absorbance of damaging potholes.

Brakes on US-spec M-sport are identical to brakes on other lines for the same engine size. M-sport brakes are not yet available on US-spec M-sports.

When ordering the $89 spoiler on eBay, how or where do you indicate the desired color?

I believe it was under comments before you confirm your payment, for example I put paint code B45 Estoril Blue II for a 2013 f30 335i M Sport.
