Need some kind of spoiler/lip for the trunk...

Hey guys trying to see what spoiler/lip to get on OEM trunk for an alpine white 335is. Something with a bit of a kick. I did not want to go the CSL trunk route as I do not want to spend that much for it.

I was thinking an OEM M3 spoiler in either white or black (to match the bumper) but do not know what else is really out there. I am not really a fan of the BMW Performance Style CF Lip. Looks weird to me on my car (no offense to anyone who has it.)

Anyone PLEASE have any examples? THANK YOU!

Picture example of the rear:

There are only 2 styles that look decent. other than that theres the hamann spoiler which looks meh...

Look in the photo section, every 2nd post has what your looking for..

Just get an M3 lip. Its subtle and looks good.
But IMO on AW Performance CF is the best, high kick, go big or go home.

Normally I'd say a white M3, but after seeing a black M3 spoiler on a white 335is...easily my choice. IMO the white just wouldn't stand out.

I found you can order it at bimmian. I think black looks better but I don't trust the 3m tape...will it last of you slam the trunk?

3M tape works fine. Held my M3 trunk spoiler down for over 35k miles of autobahn and still going.

Side note: the spoiler actually works as the car felt more stable above 145mph. However, when I installed my roof spoiler in combination with the trunk spoiler, I think it actually made it less stable.
