I was kicking around the idea for a while since I have a black car

I've got one from ebay. It's OK, but as someone mentioned, the quality probably isn't as good. Some of them have defects (from the molding) and it makes them somewhat difficult to paint. I believe the OEM BMW one is $200+, so spending $35 isn't such a bad option...

Be careful, just look at the worst mods thread and many post about the eBay spoilers.

I have a BMW oem part, the quality is there when painting and fitting to the car.

ive got an ebay one made of polyurethane. i like it alot actually. there are a few defects in it such as dimples and what not but you cant really tell unless you get up close to it. i would go ebay if i were you to save a bunch of money

that ebay one is better than my ebay one... mine are a lil short and has a 1/2" gap on each side.
I still like it and it served its purpose for the $55 i spent on it.

That's the fist spoiler i've seen that I actually like. Who's the seller?

paint your rear lower valence and your sides, since its free...
i still have to do my sides but my driver side needs replacing before i do it.

obviously, the sides and rear are a much larger and completly different project than simply slappin some brilliant black/clear on a 3' strip. also, i need to replace the lower door mouldings before i paint anything.
