Black on black + performance spoiler?

Ive got a Jet Black 135i with black Breyton wheels and I love the look, but I want to add a little definition and was thinking the performance spoiler would help. Is this a good route to go or will it not be very noticeable/worth the upgrade?

The performance spoiler definitely adds a nice, aggressive/sporty look to the rear of the car.

Here's mine prior to paint:





And after:





I personally like the look a lot more painted; however, this is all a matter of preference. If I had a white, silver or red 1er, I think I'd prefer it with the CF exposed.

Looks hot, I love the look of mine. The CF will work well on JB as it's not a true black but more graphite.

looks great painted, but why spend all that money for carbon fiber to cover it up? there shouldn't be a significant weight difference due to how small the part is.

do they make the lip in abs plastic or other cheaper materials? i would imagine someone created a replica of this thing at a fraction of the cost of OEM

Here are a few shots of my baby. Maybe they will help you decide. They are not the best pics, but you get the idea.
