How do you get your car to hang on that wall? Velcro?

Hmm, not sure about a black spoiler on a silver car. I personally think it rather ruins the looks.

The other thing I feel sorry for, are these dreadful orange reflectors on the wheel arches, I know they are unfortunately a legal requirement in the US. I wonder who thought that they serve a real (safety) purpose.

After seeing Gran_Turismo's pictures of the CF spoiler, I decided to purchase one also.
I just installed it on my Alpine White GT. It blends in well with the black trim and dark tint rear window.
Mounting and alignment took a bit of time. Not sure if I'm a fan of the larger up swept rear lip. I would of liked it to of kept the OEM profile and shape. I'll give it a couple more days. If not, look for a post in the 4 sale section.
Shipping was fast from the seller and the product looks well made. Only question was why they included 10 wood screws with the spoiler? It mounts with the OEM bolts.

I actually don't really notice or mind the reflectors. Think IND can make custom paint matched reflectors for the f34.

It blends in fairly well with the dark glass.

Looks great! They only thing I think that would enhance this spoiler would be to paint match the top and leave the underside exposed of CF. But I think it still looks great as is, like in mine

Yeah I used the OEM bolts as well. Oh and just a tip do not over tighten the bolts or else it will crack the CF and it'll go flying off on the freeway one day. Had that happen to my friends f34 a few years ago.

It's the bmw OEM rack. Fits f30, f34, f80 etc. No issues with opening roof. You can probably search you local fb marketplace or CL for a used one. I got mine from a FB ad for $100. The only issue is they whistle at around 30-40mph so I had to add a faring.

Here is a link to a new set.

After long-term large fleet research in the field decades ago, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration engaged in regulatory rulemaking, inviting comments from all interested parties, including justification of the cost/benefit outcome for approval by the General Accounting Office before the Final Rule could be issued. Briefly, the data shows they work to reduce side impacts at night. They are removed/covered/painted at one's own risk, and unfortunately, as well as the oncoming driver's, who might have seen the car sooner at the intersection.

I'm not bothered by the reflectors. It's not like I look at them while driving. I am bothered by my car getting hit by another vehicle because the other driver didn't see my car. With my lights on that's not likely, but I don't leave my lights on when my car is parked at night.

It actually doesn't bother me either. One less mod to spend money on.
