The OEM spoiler is a VERY nice piece! Borderline perfect and worth every penny.

I have one, the height of the flare is different. I had both and love my performance, if its money then go with the JBspeed, but if you dont mind paying 5xx for one go with the BMW one

I was at my local BMW dealership (Irvine BMW) for something else and asked if they had the performance spoiler in stock and how much. He quoted me MSRP and I said "no thanks, it's much cheaper online" (Tischer had a sale at the time, $400 IIRC) and he asked me how much. I pulled a BS number of $360 out of my ass and he said "done".

I looked like an ass when I made a stupid excuse why I still didn't want it and walked away.

My dealership in Atlanta (United) matched the online price of others, about $100 off.

OEM. My car would look naked if I took my spoiler off now.

BMW actually puts real engineering work/R&D/wind-tunnel tests these add-ons prior to marketing. For this and the front splitters, BMW claims that there is additional downforce generated (per original press releases). While probably not noticeable especially at legal speeds, a even a few lbs of downforce or lift reduction is a win, plus you can't beat the OEM quality/looks that you want to retain with a $65+k car.

Did BMW mention how many pounds of downforce is actually generated?

I love mine, looks great. And I don't presume that its giving me any real added downforce in corners like a wing would, but I DO feel the lift reduction on the long backstraight at Road Atlanta where you can get noticeably light over the last rise at 140. Now it feels rock solid. I think it definitely has some functionality along with the aesthetics.
