    Hi guys, I've bought a 2nd hand genuine Alpina boot poiler but it was off a coupe, whereas mine is a saloon. I thought that boot lids would be the same width, but I think I may be wrong. Can someone measure thier coupe boot lid width please, from the rear edge across. Mine is 1metre and 122mm. The mounting legs on the spoiler look like they are too close together by about 15mm.

    Correct. The coupe bootlid is actually slightly smaller.

    Oops, well, I guess I'll have to get the garage to shave a bit of the underside of the ends down, or maybe raise the feet slightly.
