CF spolier on Le Mans Blue e90; Yah or Nay

I have ordered an e90 Le Mans Blue, and I know get the CF rear diffuser, but I'm Not sure about The OEM CF trunk spoiler. What do you guys think.
Some pics with and without CF spoiler. (pics of bora and sascha320d cars)

Edit. spolier = spoiler LOL

Go for it! Complement the rear diffuser and spoilers with the front splitters. The contrast of le mans blue and CF work, imho.

CF looks good against blue, but you'll have to make sure the CF weaving is the same from diffuser to spoiler.

You could always paint the rear spoiler the color of your car, or leave part of the CF showing.

I guess the weaving is the same since they are both OEM.

Im not a fan of CF, and I think it is just too much of a contrast with lemans. If I had the msport kit on my E90, I would have had the whole kit (diffuser included) painted the body color...

I saw one for the first time today and didn't like it. It just looks over the top.

Hm... I prefer Bora´s car. The Lemans colour is so much foreground in itself. It can get a bit too much with cf both diffuser and trunk spoiler. Cf diffuser on Lemans is understated and ultracool!

Arrggh, definitely no CFspoiler on LeMans!!!

The CF-Diffuser looks perfect though.

Congrats on your order, finally!

We've gone for the colour coded spoiler with our Le Mans Blue M Sport and Black Lines, looks great with the black (not CF) diffuser.
