Question BMW Performance Spoiler!

Hi all! does anyone here know if any vendor here sells BMW Performance style spoiler in matte black? I know they have them in CF but I need it Matte Black. I know I can get a CF one and wrap it but why pay for CF to cover it.

I wanted a front Challenge and rear ZCP spoiler but they only came in CF. I had planned on painting both but didn't want to pay CF prices.

I told my Speed Shop contact and he suggested that if I could wait, he would advise his supplier to let him know of when the CF didn't aesthetically turn out so well in the manufacturing process. 45 days later I purchased them for a discount but structurally they were fine. They have been on now for a year and painted look great.

Just a thought....

If your not concerned about the CF, then I would go buy one off eBay. They have fiberglass replicas that are painted that you can buy for $100 bucks then just paint it matte black.

^^^ I think this could be your cheapest option. Then you will need to deal with possible fitment issues that ebay items can have. You could try: http://www.eurosportdesign.com/p-168...p-spoiler.aspx

Only the F30 3 Series has a non-carbon performance spoiler now, unfortunately.

I would stay away from eBay spoilers. The work to get it to fit will not be worth the extra cost of spraying over a genuine CF BMW spoiler.

I am also trying to get more feedback on fitment issues with ebay trim. I would imagine its probably a crap shoot.

That's my fear! But that's also the risk with how cheap they are on Ebay.
