I see that a lot of spoilers are compatible for e92/e90 but I've never seen anyone put the lime rock rep spoiler on their e90.

The one you like best is the one you should get. That said, my preference is for the ones that don't look like they were attached, and instead appear to just be part of the trunk lid.

Also on the link it said that it is PU-plastic and flexible etc. It really was fiber glass and wasn't flexible. It didn't have those tapes either and it came from Hong Kong. The fitment was nothing like in these pictures.

3Ddesign CSL spoiler will cost something like 600-1000$.

I once bought one of those from local guy here and now its in my attic, because fitment was bad. Biggest problem was, that it had like 10mm gap between the taillights and above license plate, where the bmw emblem suppose to be. No way of getting it fit there properly. Except cutting and re-doing with fiberglass.

Of course you might get lucky and get better fitting part, but its hit or miss.

Trunk lid spoilers that mimic csl boot lids are ghetto IMO. If you want high kick, pony up and buy the whole trunk from duke dynamics or something.

You are kinda right, but the 3DDesign csl trunk add on looks nice and so would mine, if it would fit perfectly. But since it doesn't i decided to go with CSL trunk. It will be custom made at stock trunk from sheet metal. That will fit 100% sure. Some of cheaper CSL trunk that there is for sell might have fitment issues too

No problem. I bought 2 different spoiler, but wasn't really happy with either of them, so try to prevent others doing the mistake. Autofans sell also carbon fiber style CSL add on, but i can't be sure the fitment would be any better than my current one.

Curvature and length of e92/e90 trunk is different. Even the common rear roof spoiler ACS and Hamann real/replica's.

This was my CSL that I took off yesterday. http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=856731

That CSL trunk spoiler looks awesome with that stance. What wheels, offsets or spacers you running on those?

Thanks, that was from last year. The wheels that time were OEM M6 wheels.
Front wheels Tires
8.5x ET 12 Hankook V12 215/19/35
Rear wheels Tires
9.5x ET 17 Falken 452 225/19/35

No spacers, no rubbing at all, fenders rolled though.

In my personal best order;
1. Performance spoiler
2. CSL add-on
3. M-Tech spoiler
4. M3 rep lip spoiler

All should be professionally installed if you don't know what you're doing as nit-pickers like me get annoyed by gaps in spoilers.

Does anyone have the Hamann CF trunk spoiler (like from E92 Lighting.com) for their e90? It's not a lip or high kick but more of a 3 point attached spoiler - almost like the Seibon one. I would like to see pics if there are any out there...
