E90 M3 Performance Wing Install

I finally got around to installing my OEM CF Performance Wing today on my E90 M3. Since I'm not going for the CF look on my car, I opted to have IND paint the CF wing Space Gray before sending it out to me. A HUGE thanks to Nate and the IND crew!

The install was pretty simple and straight forward with the hardest part being the removal of the old 3M tape holding down the M3 wing.

All polished up and ready for the new Performance Wing

The colored spoiler looks really cool. I have the CF one on Mineral White and I dig the contrast and matching to the roof. My dealer installed mine and they did well. However, they snapped the OEM mini spoiler while taking it off. I was upset about that but I guess I would never put it back on. What are you doing with yours?

Personally i think this performance one looks better.



I thought they only made one performance wing for the E90M. Weird

This looks great. I would like one for my AW M3 but I think I'd keep it in CF.

Where did you pick this up?
