Fixed rear lip spoiler - has anyone installed one?

Has anyone looked into or installed a rear lip spoiler on the trailing edge of the hatch, aft of the deployable spoiler? Like in attached photo taken from online Chinese store.

Haven't seen anyone on here with it. I personally think it would look weird once the spoiler is deployed.

I'm more interested in seeing someone with an aftermarket cf diffuser. So many photos from the Chinese sellers but rarely see anyone with them installed. Sucks we don't have more aggressive aftermarket parts for the f34

Yeah that was my concern too about what it would look with spoiler deployed. The only picture I can find is the one below but a little hard to tell since both spoilers are CF. It would be nice if they showed it from several different angles. If did it Id keep it body colour.

The fixed wing just doesnt flow right when the real one is deployed; looks off/wrong. I dont mind it when the wing isnt deployed though

Have you thought about the aftermarket ones that replace the oem one, they have a bit of a lip/ducktail to them?

I just installed the same one Rambleon84 has.
Still not sure if I like the look of the upturned tail.

Deployed and retracted on my F34.

I don't mind the look of that, but I don't care for the color. I'd rather it match the body, so it has more of a OEM vibe than an add on.

Yeah, I agree, would like to see one of this paint matched. If i got one, thats the route i would probably take. Give it a more subtle oem+ vibe

It blends in fairly well with the dark glass.
