All depends on what kind of look you are going for. I'm kinda in the same boat and not sure what I would do. Go with CF if you're looking for a sporty look or plan on doing some more mods.

I think you can get away with a carbon fiber spoiler if your car is a darker hue. CF spoiler on Alpine White looks a bit ridiculous.

CF on SG will look nice. you'll probably want other CF parts to complete the look tho.

go with CF, it will make it look more sporty styling and painting will cost money and the paint might actually weigh more than the CF spoiler itself...

I bought front carbon splitters and rear spoler (carbon) and traded the car in for an aw 335i sedan.cf will look perfect on sparkling graphite.I have my cf splitters incl template and betalink kit for sale.brand new.just throwing it out there. I think sg is the best color for cf peices
