Question I finally have both my spoilers, but just need advice on one thing.

So I finally have both of my Hamann spoilers at my house and ready to go. Of course, there was another little hiccup. The two side areas where the decklid spoiler mounts to the decklid have a small ducktail cutout...



DUH!! It's there to accommodate the OEM spoiler on the M3. So I've got one one of those en route also to have everything flush up properly. I'll post some stock photos of the Hamann pieces so you guys can get an idea of what it will look like. Both Hamann pieces are going to be painted gloss black to match all the other exterior trim (window trim, grilles, badges) on my car. That brings me to my question: What do you think I should do with the OEM M3 spoiler?? Body color or gloss black also?

Hamann Competition Front Lip:

Sorry for the low quality iPhone pics, but I just snapped these when I picked up the car. Some better shots to follow soon!

That spoiler looks so bad IMO. I would have done a body color or CF performance spoiler.

That front lip on the other hand makes the front look amazing. I love it.

i think the car will look way cleaner without the rear hamann wing. Just keep the m3 lip spoiler.

the hamann rear wing looks like it got pulled off a 1993 Accord.

Thanks!

LOL, I like the rear. It's the matching piece to the front. That's the beauty of car mods....everyone is entitled to their opinion and I respect those opinions, but in reality I'm the only one that has to like it

I like the front lip. However not a fan of the rear spoiler. Think you should have painted it the same color as the car would have looked better. But nice car no doubt!
