Debadged, too late to go back, took 1 hour but I'm happy, what are your thoughts?

The F30 boot lid just looks so puny compared to the beefed up M Sport bumper!

I live in Bristol, believe me, High Wycombe rock. Different class well worth the 250 round trip, better prices too. Kieran Radcliffe was a good guy.

Even if you get the thin version and get it body colour... The boot needs something

Perfect. Can be confused with a 2.0d now for the stealth look.

It definitely needs a spoiler. It will just finish it off a treat.

Debadged is definitely the way forward, much cleaner and classier in my opinion

You’ll also need a diffuser to go with that spoiler , oh and don’t forget the front splitter to balance all that extra downforce from the rear spoiler, and so it begins

The only problem with that is everyone wants to race you .. because they assume they will win easily. Great if you want to race all the time, not so great if you don't.

I have always used an ebay seller called OEM thing on Ebay. They do colour matched spoilers and I have never been able to fault the quality. This is the one I had on my old F30

Looks better.

First thing I did when I got mine was to ask the dealer to de-badge it.

If you want the most descrete one then a replica M3 spoiler would probably be best, like this:

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?m...2F323516643727

That is the seller I bought my M Performance style spoiler from.

Thanks, I've been looking for a nice subtle spoiler for a while now.

Which ever you are happiest with is the best for you. I have no desire to de-badge my 335d or even the xdrive (I like xdrive).
