I think it looks like a cheezy afterthought

see it in person before you decide, but I think it looks bad

I think it improves the rear of the E90..... not that there is anything wrong with the rear without a spoiler IMO.

From the pictures I thought it was not such a big deal, but after seeing it in a real car last weekend, I was very impressed.

I saw it on a Silver E90 during the day, and on a Black E90 at night... it's elegant and not overdone.... I would say go and check it on a real car before making a final decision on it.

Hi guys,

I voted "Yes" cos I have purchased it without seeing it in person.

IMHO, It does make the rear of E90 more aggressive. It looks subtle but really nicccccce :rocks: :rocks: :rocks:

I had it installed on my 330i and it looks subtle but sweet. Bold/loud rear spolilers don't look good on BMWs (IMO).

Agreed. It's not bad as attached spoilers go but that's faint praise. Ever notice how after several years a car with all this aftermarket body stuff starts looking like someone wearing a miniskirt and big hair way past her prime?

I am planning to get it, if my dealer doesn't try to rip me off too much on the installation.

IMO, I doesn't look like it belongs on the car, it looks ugly.

Mine arrived yesterday...waiting for paint to dry. 330I Monaco Blue. I also forked out $250 to have that clear coat put on my front bumper and lights...you can't see it unless your looking for it. I drive early in the morning and the bugs I pick up with that aggresive nose is amazing. Was tires of wipping it down every day.

Can you please show us how it looks after it's installed? I'd love to see this on a MB. Not enough photos of monaco blue around anyway.

70+ votes and almost 50/50. Seeing the rear spoiler on Rachel's and EVO_S4's cars today I've been convinced it looks good.

I hear the installation consists of a double sided peel strip tape and not
drilled on??? Seems like it could come off over time and take the body paint off the car. What's your opinion... like to have installed buy afraid if I plan on keeping the car for sometime I might be sorry down the line.

the one I saw at my dealer looked to be the same as what you describe, not quite even gaps all around and a bit "taped on" looking,

since it's apparently taped on

it's sure to look worse and worse as age and heat make the part warp

A wetterauer chip, check www.wetterauer.nl

We had also a wetterauer chip on our '99 Passat TDI 115 bhp -> 150 bhp and have a wetterauer chip on our '00 320d 136 bhp -> 170 bhp (the site says 163 bhp but the salesman said that our car has got 170 bhp, why? I don't know). And when you are customer there you'll get a discount on your next chip..
