New F34 owner! (Subtle mods)

After searching for nearly 2 years we finally took delivery today of a 2016 CPO 328 GT. I've had a 2005 Acura TL for the last 9 years and it still runs great but needed something a bit bigger.

Excited to own a BMW after all these years of watching my friends drive them.

Nice car! The M-sport on the GT is a must have IMO. It really makes the car!

I guess the dealer had the spoiler extended for show. Make sure you retract it to go. If you leave it open all the time all sorts of junk will collect beneath it, and it doesn't do anything for stability below the default speed where it automatically deploys.

Just picked up a 2015 CPO myself and I'm new to the forums as well. Where did you pick up the CF wing? I see a lot of options out there from "cheap" to very expensive.

Yes. I just did a quick mock up to see how it would align. But it replaces the oem spoiler.

It looks like this once installed

Nothing.. the cf duck spoiler will also deploy. It's a direct replacement part.

First off, car looks great. There are so many option for the Spoiler on Aliexpress, would you mind sharing the link for the one you purchased ? It's always better to work with a referred seller as opposed to random. Thank you !

Ordered from this seller simply bc it was the best price. Came with a few light surface scratches but seller gave me a partial refund.
