Rear Spoiler Installed

Installed trunk spoiler on my 135i vert, simple and "understated".

I didn't want CF.

Purchase on eBay pre-painted ($70 shipped).

Very good quality, fits perfectly and conforms to curves of trunk with judicious use of heat gun.

Plus adhesive tape bonds very well when heat applied

Nice. What's it made of, and how will it stand up over time?

Appears to be some kind of high density thermo plastic. Placed order on eBay with paint code - arrived in less than a week from China - FedEx.

Paint quality is excellent and conformance to complex curves with applied heat is great. Started in middle of trunk and worked out to edges removing backing tape a little at a time as I shaped the spoiler to match the edge of the trunk. I made sure the trunk lip was super clean and all the wax had been removed. Adhesion of double sided tape "feels" very high particularly with the heat from a heat gun. Minimal gap between spoiler and trunk.
Definitely worth $70 !

Great addition there. The spoiler accents the trunk nicely and the fitment looks spot on.
