Where to buy Carbon Fiber Trunk Spoiler for e88?

Hey Guys,

I have a 2009 135i vert and want to add a carbon fiber trunk spoiler. I've looked around quite extensively, but can't seem to find one for less than the dealership price. I do want OEM style and quality, but thought I'd be able to find it a bit cheaper online. Only thing I've been able to find is icarbon, and it seems that they are not in business anymore.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thx,

Mods, thanks for putting this in the right place. Rking, thanks for posting those. My concern with the eBay spoilers is that they all say e82/e88 and I've read several times that time trunks are different shape. Can anyone confirm if they have been able to install a coupe spoiler on a vert?

I have the iCarbon spoiler that was meant for the E82. It fits my E88 just fine.

JB Speed in the Vendors section has pretty good prices, can't speak for the fitment though. People on the thread seem happy though

Thx for the replies and info guys.
Xios, would you be able to compare it to the fit and finish of the oem BMW piece?

Also, just checking, the JB speed is not an icarbon part is it?

Just bought an ABS spoiler from JBSPEED. I've bought from them in the past and it's a great company.

I used to have a CF spoiler from ********. It was crap fitment-wise and yellowed pretty fast. I bought it years ago, though, and ******** isn't around any more, and now I think the vast majority of companies making CF parts for our cars are of decent quality (even the china ones).

iCarbon will have a fitment and weave closer to OEM than the china-made ones, however they're not around any more either and were more expensive. However, you really don't notice a thing once it's on. Save a lot of money and just be a little more careful with the installation, and you're all set.

Again thx to all for the input. So jb says theirs wont fit. That's leaves eBay or used icarbon. Anyone have experience with a specific eBay seller?

I had posted some pictures of it when I bought it which showed some gaps in the weave but as others have said, it's not noticeable once installed. I'm very happy with it and have to be honest that I've never seem an OEM CF spoiler up close so I can't compare.

Update, I've had the oem e88 CF for a few years now and I love it. Perfect fit and I found it for about 375 new. Shop around.
