    Hi

    I will be fitting one of these next week and am wondering if somebody over the next few days could measure how far back from the top of the rear window these are fitted from factory.


    Thanks in advance

    Craig

    My neighbour has one - I'll knock on tonight and ask him if i can measure it if no-one else can help. There must be a few E90 owners on here.

    What is the purpose of the fin anyway?

    I always thought these fins were just to scare people when you drove through a very deep puddle... Learn something new every day
