Kinda ghetto but it works!
Some guy on the e30 boards name Ryan G made something similar and sells them for $90. A ton of e30 guys have them on their cars, but the point is...same concept!

for being the first to just try!

When you say it works, do you mean it actually provide noticeable down force? or, you mean it looks good?
