Spoiler - Opinions please

I inherited this when I bought my car, it is brand new and was in a box in the boot, but I've always been unsure whether to stick it on or not??
Picture shows it just placed on the back.

I've shown the pic to "car" people at my work and the all say it looks good and transforms the back in a good way, stick it on. These aren't BMW people though, so I'm 50/50 whether to stick it on permanently.

Comments welcome please, good or bad

I prefer it to the M3, not really seen any that style before.

Theres a white e92 near me that has the same spoiler, It looks sick!

Im personally rocking the inconspicuous lip, whereas this thing does stand out.

Go for it!

To be fair it is your personal preference. But you asked for an opinion. I would sell it and possibly look to fit a vorsteiner csl type boot.

Hey boz, is it possible to have a full side on pic, with the wheels and everything. As I think it will be better to gauge wether it compliments the whole package or not.

Bit difficult with just snipets of angles.

I didn't think of taking one side on, will give it a go tonight.

These aren't my usual wheels, normally on 19" 313s. These were put to bed for the winter.

Sorry bro, lip spoiler for me. The coupe shape lends itself to a lip spoiler beautifully.

But it doesn't look that bad all the same.

I quite liked it from the 3/4 shot but back end on it looks a definite no no., somehow too narrow.

Thanks for the opinions, I've decided it's a no, may look to buy a lip spoiler to tart up the back end. I've got the performance diffuser on order (since before Xmas!!) so this should finish it off nicely.

p.s. Anyone want to buy a spoiler

Imo, it would look much better for an M3 lip spoiler. Really helps finish the look of the car off
