    i am currently being pushed by the fiancee to get a diesel so the coupe could be getting sold,

    but i really dont want to so if i keep the car i want to do more stuff to it!!!

    so i have seen a few coupe's with the lip spoiler and i really like them on the coupe but i currently have the m3 spoiler fitted

    can people post some pics of other spoilers or pics of there lip spoilers!!

    i have a few choices aswell as to whether to get it painted the same colour of the car??

    or do it cosmos black or wrap it in carbon fibre:??

    any others idea etc please say!!!

    Remove the spoiler completely imo. I think the lip has to be on the right colour car (Lee you need to get yours carbon'd up) for it to work.

    ACS is another option, but I don't like that one. Just throwing it out there. How about the GT spoiler?

    i was on the lookout for the acs 3 piece spoiler for ages and even paid for one from rossiters but was rang to say they'd dicontinued them and they had all gone!

    i found a guy that had put up an ad for one as he'd got one hoping it would fit his vert but didnt and was asking £170
    but when i messaged him he'd changed his mind and now wanted £280 which is over what is was new! so i didnt bother!
    but i still keep my eyes open for one!

    I think the 3 piece spoilers look horrible. I can't remember his name, but one of the guys on e36coupe.com has one. Blue, Toddy front splitter, ACS rear diffuser if that rings any bells?

    yeah aaron i like that spoiler diffuser combo!
    i might of gone for that if i hadnt already of had my diffuser done in carbon!

    i also considered the carbon csl bootlid but am unsure about the position of the roundel on the e36 version

    That's the thing about the spoiler, you have to have the diffuser to make it work.

    I'm unsure about the CSL bootlid. Have seen it, but can't make my mind up.
