CF splitters and spoiler on TiSilver E90, or body color?

Carbon fiber add ons look great w/ TiSilver, but I am vacillating between a rear deck spoiler and front splitters in CF, or staying TiSilver. I want a "tastefully" modded look, that I can live w/ in the long run. Here is a pic of my car now, what are your suggestions?

Seems like you answered your own question in your first few words. "carbon fiber add ons look great with TiAg". If you like the look, then go for it. Heres a few photos of a car with what you want just to give you an idea.





painted spoiler


Personally, i think the cf splitters stick out way too much unpainted, but the CF trunk spoiler will probably look good unpainted. Just look at a photo of our group shot. Look at how the non painted splitters stick out like a sore thumb out of the bunch.

Here is a look on an AW E90...................CF splitters would look better..........I was debating the same question but decided to go with CF because of the contrast........see for yourself......

Yeah, the CF body parts look amazing w/ AW. The first time I saw a CF spoiler in person was on AW. That's when I started to think about putting it on silver.

SunnyBoo, that looks great! Are those OEM parts, or aftermarket? Did you tape them, or use the Betalink?

I would stick with the body color if you want something classy. The exposed CF to me is more of an aggressive look that can be amazing when pulled off but needs to have the correct mix of mods. You'll need to do more aggressive wheels and carry the contrast throughout the car.

i agree if the splitters are painted it becomes too subtle i think it gives a lil more aggressivness as well when its cf. i like the rear deck spoiler unpainted too because of the contrast

Yes, after some thought, I am going to go painted. I think I want to be more subtle. So who has the "killer deal?"

I have those CF part unpainted, and think thats looks great in my Le Mans blue e90. But the CF will stick out much more on the lighter colored TiAg.
