Arrow Help needed from M3 spoiler users

Hey guys,

My spoiler does not curve as much as the edge of the trunk, so there is a bigger gap at the center of the trunk compared to the sides of the trunk. Is this normal? Or is it a defect?

Thanks!

if it is the OEM spoiler, you have a defect, fitment on the OEM version is 100% exact curve as the trunk.

i've bent it to the limit (paint is bulging up in the middle) and it is still not working... the ends of the spoiler is already flush to the trunk... i am just going to return it.

i would recommend that everyone get the OEM.

Actually its not supposed to sit flush with the trunk. The oem m3 spoiler sits 1/2 inch in from the trunk. If you want it to be oem, do not try to mount it flush.

+1 What he said. I think it looks better flush, imho. I had to flex my replica m3 spoiler a bit so it would match the trunk line. If the paint is bulging, that is definitely too much.

We need someone with an M3 to measure OEM trunk positioning and hook us up!

the ends are already flush, but the center is not... that's the problem.

I'm not sure about that either! Mine (OEM) fits flush and that's how it appears in the M3 pics also. Another reason to go OEM...
