Need opinions on spoilers (a DIY project)

Postby Firebird on Wed Jan 16, 2013 11:50 pm

Was thinking about a relatively easy DIY project for my E92 one of these weekends.....

Would rather have the opinion of none owners (been on the forums reading what people who've bought these have been saying), who haven't seen these before. What's your first opinion?

I'm leaning towards either:

M3 lip (the small lip spoiler) + roof spoiler:

or

"vacuumed" lip spoiler:

I'm thinking the roof spoiler + a larger spoiler would be too much bling? Any dissenters?

perfect first response.

i like the m3 lip better than that carbon fiber looking spoiler. i dont care for the roof spoiler, but thats just me.

I like the bodylines of the roof already, so dont do the roof spoiler. The carbon fiber lip looks good though.

I am anti spoiler. My opinion would be that cars look more clean and sleek without them.

I'm in ID40's camp. A spoiler messes up what's already a great design.

Save your money.

Former E36/E46 M3 owner.
If you do anything, do the CF spoiler (although from the back it looks a little too Mercedes to me).

The lip just doesn't do anything for me. It's not substantial enough to do anything but look tacked on and out of place.
I've also never been a fan of the roof spoiler.

There's a none CF one as well.

My car is black, by the way.


Honestly, having nothing, I think it's kind of bland, even the m3 lip will finish off the backend, looks wise.

Not sure what way to go yet though.

I thought this was going to be a poll on whether spoiler tags are proper etiquette.
