Found on ebay that there are 2 different manufacturer of these spoilers. The one at $89is made of Polyurethane material FRP Blow Molded. The other one at $86 and is made from ABS material.

Which one is better?

The only difference I can see is that the BMW CF weave is more subtle and matches M Performance interior bits - good if like me subtle is you intent, bad if you want everyone, including Grandma, to notices ;-)

One question: any hassle ordering direct from China. I've seen and heard horror stories...
I too have heard some pretty bad stories/experiences from ppl, but was lucky. I didn't have any hassle and the seller was very good and I got it in ~10days from order date.

I initially told myself I wasn't going to mod this car, but after ~3months of driving a bone stock car and seeing so many F30's on the road, I had to do something. From far away, you can't really even tell it's CF and just looks black. I also paired a "real" CF license plate frame to match the rears.

It's been a long wait, but definitely worth it. Paint and fit look good to me.

Is there a spoiler without that middle gap between the spoiler and the trunk? Can't seem to find one. Is there a reason to why there's the gap also?

Its probably because the original M performance spoiler is like that.

I recently got the spoiler and i got it hook up on my car.
But i realised that i got the alignment slight wrong. Its more to the left than in the middle.

I had the adhesive promoter on when i put on the spoiler.
Can i remove the spoiler now without any damage to the paintwork?
If can, how do i remove the spoiler to realign?

You can remove it.. there are a few videos online showing how to use dental floss and a micro fibre towel.

You'll have to use some goo-gone to get rid of the residue on both the trunk and the spoiler and start over.

So I'm curious as to how this spoiler holds up in the sun. I would expect some shrinkage, but damn, for $89 bucks already painted....hard to go wrong.

Hey Rossifumi, can you post a picture of how different the color is? Is this something that could be lived with, or is the difference REALLY noticeable?

It is like it is two different shades of red, I ordered it just to try and thought for myself if it is quite close I will just install it but it is not even close. I am no way near my car at the moment but I can take a picture early next week.

arghh! I really want one! I dont know anybody in Atlanta who has a really good paint shop and i am not exactly sure how much would the Dealership charge me!

It would be great if you could take a picture whenever you are close to your car. If not, i will just order it and take it to the dealership :-/

Best 89 mod

Just installed my black lip on my AW sportline. Looks amazing. Even my wife likes it.

I have installed it for more than a month now and it has been holding up nicely. My wife doesn't like it as it makes closing the trunk a bit harder (she has to reach up more for the top of the trunk). However, she definitely like the look of it and how it makes the car look more aggressive.
