For an E90, CSL LCI Decklid or Standard LCI Lid with OEM Perf Spoiler?

I seriously cannot make up my mind on this. I have an '06 Sparkling Graphite 330i and I want to mix up the back a bit. I would like to do an LCI conversion but not sure what to do with the decklid. Note that I will be installing an OEM MTech bumper as well. I feel the CSL shows a bit more aggression but maybe a bit overplayed where the LCI with perf. spoiler is clean as hell but maybe too stock looking. I dunno...what's the general consensus here??

1) Sonic Tuning LCI CSL decklid (not a major kick but certainly not subtle)

Photos are of SneakyDeaky's car




2) OEM LCI decklid with OEM BMW Performance CF spoiler (wouldn't be high kick since they don't make one for E90)

Photos are of Amans_e90's car

I know it's pre-LCI....I want people to imagine it with LCI. I think it would be pretty sharp!

I will have the MTech rear and an M3 front. But I am debating on the Kerscher lip vs. the VRS lip. Car will NOT be slammed so it's not going to be THAT aggressive.

you will need LCI tail lights, LCI trunk lid, either wiring harness or change the wiring order yourself, and also some coding to get rid of the bulb error

I'm definitely leaning toward the CSL trunk. Your car looks exactly what I want to do but with ducts instead of fogs on the front bumper. Do you have a pic of your car with the CSL decklid?

As stated above I have a M3 spoiler installed but I want to get either the performance spoiler or CSL.
