$88 performance spoiler-Painted

Yep-- thats right $88... painted and shipped performance spoiler from china-- came with 3m tape, prep pads and instructions, I had on of the $29 ones on my e46 for 4 years with no trouble--they also gave me a delivery date of Sept 7-19th and I received it last Monday Aug 12th! Perfect fit and perfect matching color, Looks great. Car's dirty or I would have gotten better shots. Also used the rubber pinstripe remover to get rid of the 3m residue my stock spoiler left-- total for remove, clean and replace --1 hr

looks really good mate!....

Looking at the seller feedback... some other buyer isn't so happy with the same spoiler..
might be bad luck..

Ebay is hit or miss, I picked up a CF style one and got huge gaps under each corner from it being mis-shapened.

Looks good OP! How is the fitment at the corners, is it nice and flush all the way across?

Not bad at all. Looks like there's several painted spoiler options on ebay- some of them are the type that's a little more aggressive, not sure what it's called. Will probably jump on this as the CF one I have is peeling up.

got one of these a few months back, fitment wasnt perfect since the corners sort of poke up... but other than that i dont think its too noticeable unless you peak up under it
was pretty neutral about it

Fitment is perfect. Tips are stuck down very nicely, overall excellent fitment-- I figured for $88 can't go wrong-worse that could happen is I'd have to repaint

Only problem I had was when I pulled off the stock spoiler whoever installed it gouged the trunk lid and the gouge was under the stock spoiler-- now I need to touch that up-- you can see it in the first image

I had a $29 e46 lip spoiler on my XI for 5 years-held up great-- hope this isn't any different

can you please post some more pictures. I was planning to buy one but still can't decide if it doesn't looks too awkward on the car... does it look almost identical to the bmw performance one or is it bigger ?

The whole thing is basically identical to an OEM one, except the edges. The OEM one has flatter edges, making it appear more attached to the trunk, this one sort of has rounder edges.
It looks great on the car imo, since my car is BSM, the cf wouldnt have been noticeable anyway, so I went with this one.

I'd assume that it's the angle, and yeah got it from the same guy
