    Hi all,

    have managed to find and m-tech spoiler in the right colour so no spraying required ! bonus !! He also has the bolts to fit it which they often don't.

    however it is off a 1994 saloon, the guy selling it says he was going to put it on his early model e36 convertible.

    I have a 1999 model, will this spoiler fit or can it be made to fit ??

    thanks for your help and keep up the good work.

    a spoiler on a vert is really not a great idea mate, as considered a no no due to the nice boot line when the roof is down, if anything you should be considering a lip spoiler imo mate

    mark,

    i am pretty sure the spoiler wont fit, the boot lids are slighty different, and i have to agree with ralph, if you are gonna go for something go for the lip style of spolier as the normal type just dont look right on a vert.

    keep the lines of the car as they are, IMO its the best way.

    But of course it is your car and do what u want to do as each car is different mate.

    good luck and when u done anything post up a pic or 2.

    Chris
