I tink it's real nice. It's a subtle stock looking type of spoiler so either way it won't make a huge different but it just gives the back a slightly more aggressive profile and look! Just my 2 cents

Absolutely;;just like an Alpina spoiler. What's strange is....it looks like they could've made the car look that way in the first place just by adding a little extra sheet metal.

I like the way it looks either way. I wouldn't say it looks a lot better with the spoiler, but i voted yes. It's not such a huge difference that I'd necessarily either order one or delete one. If it comes with it, fine. If it doesn't, well...I'd probably just save the $$$.

I would guess probably no more than $200, unpainted. Of course, this makes me wonder if you can buy just the rear spoiler separate, or if you can only get it with an entire aero kit as a BMW OEM accessory, where you'd probably have to shell out an extra $1000+. I know I heard an OEM aero kit is coming out in the fall.

The spoiler is very subtle, but I personally think it looks better without.

Its funny, there are people that love spoilers, and those that cant stand them..I happen to be of the latter crowd...Spooilers are like neon underbody kits..They belong on Civic's, Eclipse's, and 240SX's...Leave those for the 14 year olds...This is a BMW, leave it alone!..

Unless of course you're talking about an M sport aero kit! HAHAHAHA!!

Honestly tho..

Spoilers are awful on BMWs. Too much "bling, bling" for my taste.

Yes, very subtle..I think that might be the problem too..I dont think it would look that bad on a coupe..But on the sedan, it looks like something a high schooler would make in shop class while he was bored...I just think if you're driving a $30,000+ car, you dont need a $200 piece of sheet metal to make it look cool...Thats what the Type 162 wheels are for!!

Hehe but 162 wheels cost thousands compared to $200 I'm gonna vote no on the spoiler for a sedan but I do think it will look good on coupe like bozo said.

Man, dont remind me about how much those &*^@ wheels cost..I just signed the dotted line to have them put on...just under 3 grand...And you know what? In another thread (photoshop request) in case you havent seen it, there is a photoshopped pic of the old Type 44's (my personal favorites) on an E90, and it looks bada$$!!(Thanks again to Mark@E90)...

Roburado talked me out of it..Its all HIS fault!!

you know, that spoiler is just so subtle I dont see how anyone can hate it. Its like the little spoilers they add for an M3 or M5. This might even come standard on an M3 sedan. Id say go for it just because its subtle and noone will be offended by it. Wait till hamann puts out some agressive wing haha

I ordered a 330i last month. The factory spoiler goes for $350.

I was going to order it for mine but then decided to wait till September. AC Schnitzer will come out with theirs at the Frankfurt Auto show. The whole body kit will be available!!!!

Are you planning to get the entire ACS bodykit? That's gonna cost some serious cash. It's a bit much for my taste but I'd love to see a member have that kit!

Hey guys... to me. i'm confused on the spoiler. I have another question though, I ordered a 330i Premium, Cold, and Sport with rear sunshade, Navigation and rear parking sensors. I just ordered 6 disk changer and the blutooth cradle, and more recently Style 199 wheels......Will I get credit for the Style 162 wheels or will I have to pay full price for the wheels??
