Haven't heard anything either. Andy said the spoiler would ship on Feb 28th so I emailed tonight asking for an update.

I ordered a spoiler directly and was told March 12th for shipping also.

Only reason I haven't been going crazy is that the car is still garaged until the weather warms up a bit & the road salt is washed away.

The hood fitment has been discussed but the general consensus is hoodpins helps with the fitment near the front of the hood by pulling it down flush for better alignment.

Mine was fine up front, but needed some washers at the hinges to make it go flush with the side panels up near the windshield.

I'm is 95%+ perfect fitment. The left side is 2mm difference height in front than the right side. You can't even tell untill you looks super close. I'm really happy with my hood.

Does anyone make the CSL style trunk or carbon fiber spoiler for a 135i Convertible? Every single web page I hit doesn't have a convertible option...

Unfortunately, even hood pins can't make it fit right up front and there's about a 6" length that is at least 1/4" lower than the fender on the upper left side. Very noticeable. Mario was going to call twice but never did, so I turned the matter back over to HPF to pursue. For all that money and an 8 month wait, either I get a hood that fits right or I want my money back.

Did you try adjusting the hinge upwards? If its the same area that I was seeing, I just had to loosen the bolts that secure the hinge to the body and slide it slightly upwards. Take a pic if possible...

The fitment test was done professionally by Horse Power Freaks (HPF). They do a lot of hoods, trunks, lips, etc. and, in their pro opinion, this was not a good fitment. Hood pins could not resolve the front issue and nothing could fix the dip on the left edge issue. They sell iCarbon products and recommend getting a replacement or money back. My decision.

Thanks. Eight months to get the hood and trunk (!!), then a bad fitment. NOT amused.
