Hi guys. How exactly did you place the tape? Straight on the edges of the spoiler or somewhere in the middle of the spoiler?
I test-fitted the spoiler with the tape straight on the edges, but the tape can be seen this way. I guess this is not right. Can someone confirm? :-)
Thanks in advance.

I ordered Melbourne red from them. They said it wouldn't be perfect but I gambled and ordered anyway. The price is a steal.

It is being shipped at the moment, should have it early next week.

A bit of a side note but just curious, is this your normal seat position for the driver & passenger seats?

Lol, yes mostly, I have a bad back and it is more comfortable , and I'm about 6'1 so a lol more room.

Got my Estoril blue painted in.

I need to look at it in the sunlight. It is a slightest shade darker.

(dry fit)

I just received my $89 black saphire metallic (BSM) spoiler. The shipping was super fast. The fit seems spot on. The color on the other hand is more black than it is BSM. There is a lot less sparkle to it when compared to the factory paint. Not enough for me to complain but noticeable for the perfectionist out there. Just FYI

I received mine too, in BSM. It wasn't listed as one of the color options but I took a gamble. Super fast shipping, took like 3 days. Color was spot on but it came covered in swirl Had to polish it before installing. Came out great.

Got it today (first got a black one lol).
And the color is darker than the car, so I'll have to re-paint the piece.

But this isn't their fault! They said it wouldn't match and I said that I wanted to take a chance!

I ended up getting a Carbon Fiber one with my Alpine White.
I wanted a little contrast, and going to Black Rims with tint.

Will post pix later.

Regarding the install of these spoilers:
Putting on the 3M tape took some time, and I just put them on around the edges while drinking a beer. (Don't put them on the VERY edge, or you'll see the 3M tape)

TIP: Put the spoiler on the trunk for test fit, and used some painter's tape to mark the top of the trunk as outline so you know where to put it evenly.

Took three days to get mine after ordering. Installed it today as it was a beautiful day in NY. I'll post some pictures when I'm on my computer, really happy with the color and quality of this lip.

First step I took was cleaning (trunk and spoiler base with alcohol pad) and then testing fit and location, then its a matter of applying the double side tape to the spoiler first and don't worry they supply enough double sided tape to install 2 spoilers (I still had almost half a roll left), when installing tape on spoiler I used my thumbs to force down tape also scissors are critical if you want the job done right, especially on the outside edge of the spoiler I made the cut to kind of flow with the shape of the spoiler at the base on that part.

Then the most tricky part was attaching it to the trunk because you want to make sure both sides of the edge of the spoiler have an even distance from the other edge of the trunk, just a rough estimate there was about a quarter of an inch spacing on both sides.

The process I took was to remove the red plastic from the tape and carefully place it on the trunk itself and then going from left to right and then forward and back until it sits flush and level with the trunk , it will be very tacky just don't force it down until you know you got the spot you want.

Then you will need to apply a bit of force on the spoiler and start pushing down on it but there is no need to push down like your giving CPR (you don't want to put a dent in your trunk) just apply force evenly and hold your hands in place for about 5 seconds at a time moving slowly across the top of the spoiler.

Next step stand back and admire the look of you new car.


Thanks,Mike
Did you use the "Primer Adhesion Promoter" that came with the spoiler?

Does anybody have pics of the 3M on the spolier prior to fitting?

There is like an outer groove all the way round. Did you guys put the 3M tape on the groove or inside the groove?

Thanks

I bought the BMW OEM CF version with the car back in Sept for ~$500. The only consolation was that at that price I figured it won't be on everyone's car. Big mistake!
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...
