E90 M3 1x1 CF spoilers?

Yup...I looked around and I love the OEM BMW spoiler but it is 2x2 which doesn't go with the rest of the CF that will be on the car (Arkym front bumper/Challenge diffuser) so wanted to see if anyone knew of some nicely appointed, well fitting, not over the top 1x1 spoilers for the E90 M3.

Thanks!

Michael

If you notice the difference of 2x2 vs 1x1 on your spoiler then you are more anal than I! I didn't think that was possible Once you are a few feet away its indiscernible.

Now I know I've heard it all. Had no idea this was even a thing. Sounds like a real catastrophe as far as carbon looky bits go. Definitely make sure they match no matter the price.

I don't think I am super anal but I have dealt with it in the past and it is all about the continuity of design.

Well, it is for certain people....just like boobs, hair, and the rest....we all have things that interest us and make us tick...things that match is what I like and cost is a hinderance...not interested in dropping a ton of money to make it match....maybe I'll just paint the whole spoiler...just checking my options!

Thanks all!

Michael

I agree with you. It's like having a 1x1 lip with a 2x2 hood. To most people it's whatever. But to me if the weave doesn't match I think it looks horrible, id never rock it.

I agree with Mike. I actually prefer 2x2 but I just got a Vorsteiner bumper that has a 1x1 lip. If I do a rear diffuser or spoiler i'd only do 1x1 now.

There are a few other options out there past the Varis which is very nice but a little pricey. Challenge has their nice trunk which is not too CSLish ish and flows nicely and ModeCarbon has advised me that they have a spoiler and can do it in 1x1 if I want....just waiting on pics.

I am providing this info so that the guys looking for 1x1 spoilers have the info at hand.

Yup! I have been speaking to Sam and it looks like I may be the first E90 M3 guy (soon to be buying the car) with their spoiler in 1x1!
