Couldn't agree with you more Jimmy. I think it's more aesthetically pleasing than any of the trunk options out there for the E92 cars.

as others have said, you can get it for low $400's. if you get the carbon trunk, don't forget you'll have to pay to have it painted or have an ugly rear end.

as someone else said, if you hold it in your hand you will know why it's not cheaper. fitment is absolutely perfect, check out this write-up i did: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=615280

thanks! i mounted mine using 3M adhesive tape although i will probably bite the bullet and re-install it using betalink because i'm not 100% thrilled with the results. i've read of plenty of people who installed them and are happy with the results, it may have been where i put the tape but i love the spoiler and have no reason to ever take it off.

I just installed my performance spoiler last weekend. I bought it from http://bmwpartspros.com/ i think they are the cheapest. You can def tell its high quality. Fit is flawless and the weave is perfect. I purchased the betalink adhesive from bmw and used that to attach it. I used fishing wire to remove the original lip spoiler. I just moved it back and forth like a "sawing" motion while my gf lifted it gently from the side i started on. No heat gun needed. Came off in 5 min.
