M3 or performance spoiler?

I need some help..should i go subtle with an M3 spoiler or something more aggressive like the performance spoiler. If i go with the m3 spoiler, it's gonna be painted to match the color but if i get the performance, its gonna stay CF.

i need opinions

sorry my car is dirty and needs a wash lol. Pictures are huge so sorry about that..

That's what I was leaning towards. I think it'll look much more aggressive. I just don't want it looking out of place because I don't have any other CF bits on my car (I'm planning on buying a CF lip, but idk when).

That's what I originally wanted but I'm giving it a second thought now. Maybe I'll have one of my friends photoshop the spoilers on and ill get an idea of what it would look like.

You might find some here..
It's not the first CRT spoiler, so make sure you go pass those sets.

Just looked through those photos.. It looks really good.

Do you guys think I should go high or low kick? I think low would look better on my car. Also, get it painted or keep it CF?

Decisions decisions..

Black M3 lip spoiler

What ever you do, paint it the same black as your wheels.
I did gloss black to match my trim.

I say it depends on your rear bumper. If you have an aggressive diffuser then get the performance.

Looks like your rear bumper is stock. I'd go with the M3 spoiler painted in that case. Search for pics of my car that's what I have on space gray with black wheels.

I prefer color matched spoilers on lighter cars.

I have the M3 spoiler and it looks great on my stock bumper, the performance spoiler would look out of place and too aggressive.
Now that I have the M-Sport rear waiting to get painted I'm thinking about getting the performance spoiler and diffuser.

I completely agree with what you're saying and it'll definitely look out of place now but i forgot to mention i have an mtech rear and m3 side skirts coming on very soon. I think the diffuser is gonna stay stock for now but might end up changing it later on.

So the spoiler will be complemented with some added aggressiveness from the skirts and the mtech rear. I really can't choose but i might play it safe and go with the M3 spoiler.

My M-tech rear is also going on soon so that's why i was wondering. With the stock bumper, it'll look outa place but I think the M-tech rear might complement the perf spoiler nicely.

Still extremely indecisive

OEM Performance spoiler all day long!

Be sure to add an Aero Spoiler up front if you don't have one!

In that case,

Get the perf spoiler. I think jbspeed makes a rep with high kick. In fact there are a few for sale in the classifieds right now. Or get OEM.
