What is M3 owner's thoughts on roof spoilers and window visors?

I had a roof spoiler on my last M3 and thinking if the E90 needs one....

Also I like window visors on my SUV's and JDM cars but not sure if this is a mod people do for european cars?


thanks!

Go for the stick-on chrome air vents on the front fenders. Those make your car fast!! ;-)

thanks for the comments, figured!

Odd how it's a super popular mod on Lexus cars, must be a JDM thing only.

I had them on my Acura TL. They're definitely not going on my M3

Only place a roof spoiler belongs is on this car:




all other cars = banned.

Funny you mention window visors, a while ago when I had an EG9 I loved the visors and briefly thought about them for the E90 then decided it wouldn't be very aesthetically pleasing!

I think you can definitely pull off a subtle roof spoiler. Some of them are nasty. But a nice simple roof spoiler can look very nice.

Similar to this one

Beautiful Dakar in your sig, that stance is perfect, everything flows well!


No roof spoiler for me, but I do love the A-team!
