would you replace your spoiler for a dry carbon one?

How many prefer the painted factory spoiler over a dry carbon one?
Im refering to the one that goes on the trunk.

The trunk spoiler is almost invisible. I would only consider carbon if it was a real wing.

However, I like it the way BMW has designed it and I don't see a reason to change it. I definitely don't want a poser-wing like Evo or Impreza!

To be honest, I'd be just as happy without the lip spolier at all. It may provide some function at high speed (dunno) but its just another thing to add more time to wax jobs, and it does little or nothing to improve aesthetics (IMHO).

It does. That's why BMW only removes the speed limiter if the spoiler is still there.

That is precisely what I was thinking. I suppose any e90 spoiler will do. I plan to use my blacklines from my current car.

Absolutely not. Love the look of the lip spoiler!

The price of a CF spoiler wouldn't justify it in my mind.
