3D Design CFRP spoiler installed

I'm not a CF junky, but really like the shape of this Japanese-made trunk lip spoiler. Some may think it stands out on white too much, but in person it continues the roof theme to the rear of the car--I like it.

It is beautifully made, and matches the roof perfectly, but a little expensive. I purchased it from Julius @ WheelSTO.

How much does it cost for you?? It looks superb i think...
I was fighting the idea if I want to change the whole trunk or just the lip...

BTW: How long did it take from order to ship?

They're in the grand range. Seems like a lot, but the similar ACS one is [Edit:]$2,650! About 3 weeks air freighted from Japan to WSTO then UPSd to me.

Almost the same as a CSL trunk. Looks great though and will probably be pretty exclusive considering the price.

Some would say we are all loco for spending as much as we have on our cars alone.

Greg, could you please post more pics when you have a moment? Especially from the side?

Thanks.

Very nice spoiler, and i wanted it for my e92, but it totally isn't worth the price imo. I got a quote for it for $1020. There are full trunk replacements for that much.

Got to agree with you on that one. But you know in about a month a replica will be out for $400 shipped and will fit perfect.

Looks awesome.
How do you remove the stock spoiler?

Ridiculously overpriced. But hey, if you got the dough.

Guess they figure that M3 owners would be willing to pay those prices.

None of their products are cheap anyways, even for regular E9X products. The quality is great though.
