E90 Performance Style CF Trunk Spoiler Comparison?

Anyone have photos to show the difference between:
JL-Motoring - $280
JBSPEED - $240
OEM - $440

Looking for difference in terms of vertical/horizontal kick and slope

Thanks

Obviously, I want the OEM, but if the replicas are nearly identical, it's worth savings $200 since fitment shouldn't be an issue.

the e90 performance spoiler unfortunetly is no where near the e92 spoilers level.

it doesnt have the kick that the e92 has.

if your looking for one, modmy3 carries them and they run alittle over 200.

all the reps usually come from the same place anyways.

I don't like that one. It kicks out more than up.

After looking at E92 vs. E90, you're right. The E90 definitely doesn't kick as much...

the one that jbspeed and jl-motoring and **********s sell looks pretty much alike.

one thing i hate about the e90 is the performance spoiler is no where near the e92 performance spoiler, even oem doesnt kick up.

Could just be my eyes playing games or angles, but these appear slightly different to me:

JL-Motoring: the ends appear to round off more smoothly


JBSPEED: the ends seem to have a more kinked contour

it could be angle or could be real.

i was looking for one also for awhile but the ammount of e90 running around with the performance spoiler worries me that it might be for a reason.

post pictures if u end up buying cause the forum needs more e90 performance spoiler pictures.

I think the reason is that people on e90post are cheap and go for the $80 M3 lips.

Found the OEM for $423. For splitters or a front lip, I would say it's worth the extra $ for OEM, but fitment on a trunk spoiler can't be too off...

But like we said, the E90 doesn't point up like the E92 does. Or are you saying the reps will stick out more than up?

I had JL-Motoring E90 LCI M-Sport splitters and the fitment was pretty bad, so I sold them. Seems like it would be hard to fuck up fitment on a flat piece of CF..

If you're looking for some pics of the oem e90 one. Here is the only car I know with it. Looks nice but the price is a lot. I was just thinking of going with a rep...

Just like you're trying to be cheap by saving money on a knock-off CF spoiler? So much for all the shit you give people for buying reps

EDIT: glad to see you decided to listen to your own criticism
