I never liked lip spoilers. They look too similar to stock anyway. I like the AC Schnitzer, Racing Dynamics or even the Rieger trunk spoiler. That... or there's also the BMW OEM aero trunk spoiler. Rieger is a nice choice if you like brake lights on your trunk spoilers. I chose to go without it because it made it look too much like a Civic.

Yeh I was thinking with the M3 Lip something subtle but different...but it looks like I will be going with tints the way the poll is turning out...

Tint was my first thing I did to my car also.
Pretty soon... you'll be looking for the next mod and then the next...

I'm like that now... Sad state of affairs. Harder to break than a drug addiction. Every single one of my paychecks keep going to modifications. I got a Rieger M3 front bumper, ACS mirrors, and an ACS strut bar coming in...

tint, why? because its more useful, it blocks the sun's UV rays, plus you'd be cooler in the summer, trust me, i owned a black car.

besides, you can always get a lip spoiler later, get soemthign cheap, replica perhaps...it serves no other function than cosmetics.
