Hi Matrez,
It's a pre LCI Titan Silver 320d SE, with Blacklines, black dakota leather, and smoked side repeaters. Main differences visually are the wheels and exhaust as mine are still standard.
Hope to change the exhaust soon and also go for rear tints to look like OEM privacy glass. Just can't make up my mind about the spoiler yet.
Cheers,
Craig.

Hi Craig,

Ohhh so our cars are excatly the same outside I do not have leather inside but I am happy with my seats haha The spoiler I have purchased is in Black Sapphire colour so thats maybe not your taste of vision, but I like it as it matches all the black parts ie. repeaters etc so maybe you could think about it too. Once I upload photos everything will be clear to you

Regards,

Mat.

Hey Craig,

Just came back from work and took a few quick photos of the spoiler Sorry, the car is a bit dirty and my phone's camera a bit crappy

Here you are :









The photos do not do the justice at all, in reality it looks stunning !!!
The spoiler is of a fantastic quality, didnt expect that to be honest - the same as OEM one I must say for a friction of the price !!!

Regards,

Mat.

Make you Black Line BMW look as it should, yeah

Here you are :
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PAINTED-BM...item3a73e57e4a

If you buy it today you should get it in 10 days or so. Delivery is by FedEx and takes around 5 days to come.

Enjoy

Mat.

Might have to go on hold just now, been quoted an additional 119 on my insurance premium if I add this spoiler!!! I'm not tight, but that seems a bit extreme to say the least. Would really grudge paying that much, that's a quarter of the price of my policy!

Update on this purchasei have just received a 15 quid taxes bill! Was not expecting this and not happy but now must pay it!

In the lising states 'can reduce value and mark as gift' now i learn from the leaflet enclosed that this would help avoud the charge but how was i supposed to know until its too late

Hey yes you need to inform them after purchase you want Black Sapphire Metallic (code - 475). My car is Silver hehe

Here you are taken yesturday after a wash :






Hope you like it

Yes thats right I also received a few days ago the 'Duty and Taxes' invoice of around 15, but it was stated in the seller's discription (with no price). Still not bad for the price I emailed him about that and he cant give the refund or anything so left positive feedback as I always do for everyone lol

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!



It took 3 weeks.
As it was the first page i was trying to tip you guys off you would be hit with custom charges so the DOH was a bit uncalled for.

The spoilers do look good and compared to bmw prices even with customs charge are still good value for money.
