Carbon Fiber Fetish for 4 Series

Folks, I already own carbon fiber exhaust tips. I'm thinking of adding m performance carbon fiber spoiler to my 435i GC (and later CF mirror caps and lever base). I couldn't see any pics. Does anyone have it? What're your thoughts?

Yes, it's MPE. CF tips will fit if it's M diffuser.

Just to share, mine with carbon fibre mirror caps, cf front splitter and cf spoiler. You can get them all after market for the gc. I also had fitted original side blades from BMW.

Better double check. F32 and f36 trunk dimensions are different

They are very different, BMW do not supply a spoiler for the gc as yet, only after market companies at the moment, will try to attach picture of my f36 with spoiler. I would have preferred a more subtle one to be honest but overall it works in my opinion.

Crap, I already ordered the CF spoiler. I guess I'll just return it if I see it doesn't fit.

I have the CF mirror caps and spoiler on my AW. I like the look - it doesn't look "tunerish" - it looks nice. I don't think adding it would be overkill.

Yes, make sure you buy the correct size, I bought a spoiler for my 428Xi GC, turns out 428Xi GC is using a different spoiler than 428C 435C and 435GC.

Are you sure? I know the GC spoilers are different from the coupes because of the difference in the trunk shape. However, I had not heard the spoiler would be different between 428Xi GC and 435 GC. Dont all GCs share the same trunk?

Nice...you must have gotten that custom? Is that a wrap or did you buy all the pieces from somewhere? I like how you retained the silver trim on the center vent piece. Thats what I want to do as well.

I don't know how you can get whole CF center piece. AFAIK, M Performance is alcantara.
