E90 lip spoiler

I thought that a few of you may be interested in the boot lip spoiler that I have just received and fitted.


I thought that the rear end was a little plain, so I am pleased with how this turned out.

This cost 45 all in off Ebay (including postage from Taiwan and painted Le Mans blue). The quality is excellent and was a perfect fit. The colour match is not absolutely 100%, but near as damn it and I am happy with the match. To be honest for 45 I was a bit dubious, but ordered anyway because of all the positive feedback and I am glad I did.

I thought that this was such a good deal that I would pass on the details for anyone else who may be considering a lip spoiler.

I was looking at these last night, not sure whether to get this or the m-tech style spoiler for my e90.


Did you not get hit with import taxes and custom fees?

I just prefered the more subtle look of this one.

I did not pay any taxes or fees - but I did ask the seller to mark it as a gift!

I actually have a carbon m-tech style bumper which I never put on, reason being I think it looks a bit odd only having one bit of carbon on the car and would only have to buy more bits.

Plus carbon does work better on lighter colour cars.

Possibly tape, or if you want a more strong fixing, then adhesive like tigerseal would work. Not sure if the tape is included so ordered some 3M stuff off fleabay to make sure.

I do like them Danny - where did you get yours?

It comes with a couple of lines of (3M?) adhesive tape already attached. There is also an alcohol wipe to clean the surface and an adhesive booster to wipe on also - I didnt bother with the booster, the tape was sticky enough.

Doh!

Very nice and a good price by the looks! One for the future I think.

Now, all you need is some rear spacers to push those rims out a bit

Cheers bud! I will pm you if thats OK - we're getting off topic here.

Dont know what it's like here, but on other forums that I have visited, some people can get a bit twisty when the topic strays
