    Hi guys, I bought a boot lip spoiler for the E39 Sport/M5 to put on my 97 E36. I was wondering if anyone here has put another OE spoiler on their car that was designed for another car?

    My brother in law has a 2001 E39 530iS so I measured his lid, and it is 2/16 of an inch wider than an E36!! There was maybe just a gnats hair over 1/16 of an inch either end of the spoiler showing the boot lid, so it'll fit the E36 lid exactly, no uncoveredness.

    Gotta get it sprayed first, will put up pictures when done. The spoiler was on Ebay, $32.50 from Taiwan, FREE shipping. Just arrived 15 mins ago. Here is the link.

    I bought one of these a while ago but accidentally bought the saloon one and not the coupe one.

    Over the next few months I plan on getting this one from Taiwan, just under £40 delivered and it's painted for you as well.

    i put one of them on mines looks the part and great colour match.just make sure the area is clean and free from any polish and try and heat the area before you apply it.

    Heat the bootlid? Is that to make the sticky pads adhere better? Is it a good idea to polish the area first or just wash and dry it?

    I would just wash it with water make sure there's no bugs or anything sticking to the paintwork, then dry it. I personally would just stick it on with strong sticky adhesive pads, I wouldn't worry about heating the area I've not done it before personally.

    I bought a M5 E39 genuine lip spoiler in 2003 for my M3 E36 evo and had BMW paint in and fit it for free when they where doing a new front panel, it fitted as if it was made for for it.
