Sorry can't find the post -- it may even be on this thread about a year ago??

Hope that helps!
That does help! thank you. glad to see someone found a solution. this forum is great.

Cool

I purchased mine in matte black from emotors and then brought it to macco to color match it for around $80. Turned out great. Also, the gap in the corners is only present if you don't line up your tape to the edges completely.

Sorry for the bump but thought people might want to know there's an eBay coupon for 15 off 75. Just got my spoiler from emotors for 73$.

Pshopapp15 must use eBay app

Also fyi they sell the f80 style lip spoiler too. Took me way too long to decide between the two

Might as well edit my post: it fits pretty well but I'm a little sad that the tape is so thick that you can see it when looking at it from the side. Pretty sure the OEM one is designed so you don't see the tape

Bump..I'm not sure how I feel about the fitment. Is everyone's spoiler sitting flush on the trunk or can you see the tape at all? Maybe I shouldn't have put the tape on the edges, and instead put it more in the middle where it is slightly indented?

Ashhong ,

Gotta' tell you this thread helped me a bunch -- first, when I ordered my spolier and later when I installed!

My spoiler came with tape already on the underside and a little tube of adhesive enhancer. I as I said in my previous posts, I washed the car and let it dry before I installed; then, after making with masking tape the placement of the spoiler on the trunk, I used rubbing alcohol on the trunk. Suggest you look at my earlier posts: #455 12 Jul 14 (used the bottom picture's placement); and #474 5 Aug 14.

Hope that helps

@RSnic

Thanks for the advice, but that isn't my issue. I've placed the spoiler just fine and it sits on the trunk fine as well. My issue is that if you look at the spoiler from an angle you can see the tape that it was mounted with. This is because I put the tape on the very edge of the spoiler I think.

Do you remember where the tape was on yours when you got it? Was it along the edge of the spoiler or more towards the middle?

Ashhong ,

If I recall correctly, the tape, already on the spoiler, was offset from the edge a little (probably about 1/2-1") -- but it has been some time ago

Hope that helps

Anyone have a link to this spoiler still? Can't find it on the f30 from emotors2000 anymore for some reason.. i told myself i would only do some simple tunes(which I got way more than expected) and no exterior mods. Well I plastidipped my grille, looking for painted reflectors and clear corner signal bulbs and now must have this. It won't stop

Teefard ,

I see that John in VA has also replied, but just in case, here's the URL for eMotors2000 eBay store: http://stores.ebay.com/emotors2000

When I ordered mine, I dealt with Kelly, who was very helpful

Good luck -- hope that helps!

Looks like you found it and already purchased, but the 75$ is the new M3 style which is more like a little lip on the top of the trunk. The 88$ one is the M Performance style which sits on top and also over the side of the trunk. It's quite a bit larger
