I'm personally not a fan of spoilers, especially on E92s but it's your car so do what you feel makes you the happiest and forget other people's opinions!

If you want something on the boot, the more subtle the better I reckon. Isn't there a small spoiler that M3's have? I think it was one of your choices when looking for a spoiler. On white cars black spoilers look good. On spcgry the spoiler will look better in body colour. JMO.

Car is looking awesome socks. You're killing it bro

I still have the m3 style spoiler if you want to try? The high kick only looks good once you have done wheels & exhaust etc

I reckon it looks great! If you finish it off with the quad pipes it will top it off quite nicely!

Socket, IMO I also think that a regular M3 lip spoiler would look better on your car.

Looking good Socket. Do they make that diffuser without the quad setup?

Spoiler looks good but I prefer the small M3 lip.

Yep the spoiler looks a bit ricer so took it off this afternoon In favor of something a little more subtle. Have a set of Remus quads to pick up in a few weeks so diffuser will be filled out when they get fitted. Really wasnt planning to do rear bar right now but was part of Fossys GB on the body kits so I had to install before I got the mufflers. Might leave it like this just to be different haha not likely

Yeh I agree, a little too rice. Maybe you'd get away with it if it were painted black or body colour though. The smaller m3 lip would look better.

Remus quads on the way?! Socket you have a mod addition!

The whole look of the car has changed for the better - great job and it looks much more aggressive. The quad tips will really set off the rear; and a new set of wheels will top it off! Can't recall you mentioning but do you have something in mind in the wheel dept.?

Much sleeker and looks much better with the colour match. Good choice! What spoiler is it and how much did it set you back?
