Thinking of losing the rear spoiler on my coupe due to looking different to others but other mates of mine think its part of what makes the car and will lose a certain sense of style that comes with the coupe.

Do i keep the spoiler but by a slightly different style to mine?

just have a lip spoiler which i quite like?

none at all?
car as it stands





hoping to lower it loads more at some point soon and fell in love with this look

Any views either way as i want to be different to others out there and incorporate my own ideas too as i have loads of other thoughts in mind for it at the moment

I prefer the no spoiler look tbh. It's just finding a bootlid in the right colour, too much hassle filling holes and spraying. Defo looks better in my opinion.

Tell me about it, montrealblue is hard to find in bootlids so i might just fill and spray mine.

I think in a lot of cases, if the paint is good, stick with what you got.

i was so lucky in that a fellow forum member wanted a bootspoiler and i wanted to lose mine,same paint code and both good condition bootlids so just a case of swopping them over and we both got what we wanted without all the hassle of filling holes etc plus saved me pounds for other stuff.

got a problem with my m3 door trim though-all new grommets fitted apart from the front drivers wing arch end clip which is broke and no clip will now fit it so now only 2 clips hold it was just wondering if anyone has used a heavy duty double sided tape or glue to full secure there m3 trim as in parts some of the others look like they could be a little tighter?
