E82 Chassis Mounted Wing Startup/Design

Dear all BMW E82ers (and maybe e92ers and e90ers), I have created version 1 prototype of the chassis mount wing, this may be for sale. With that being said if it was, who would be interested? Keep in mind this isn’t the final design but however, it will look very similar, only possibly change is making the brackets further apart to make it more aesthetically pleasing! It’ll be made out of 6061 Aluminium as well!

Also wanted to note that the due to our tail lights coming far in from the outer body, the mounts can only go out so far before obstructing the view, with that being said, imagine the distance between out taillights as the distance between the two stands.

How would this provide any benefit over mounting to the top of the trunk? They're both mounted to the trunk...

so by drilling into the back of the rear of the trunk you're not ruining body panels?

Lol, didn't see the entire picture. I thought it looked like it tucked under the bumper and bolted to the bumper bar.

Oh alright I understand. I saw that but it just looked like a short fixture so I wasn't sure.
