Opinions:Best Trunk lip/spoiler for a vert

Looking to spice up my rear a little bit, everything i see for sale is for non-vert. All ive seen is the small M3 lip but that just doesnt do it for me.

I was gonna suggest the M3 spoiler, but you've already poo-poo'd that idea.

Maybe the guys on the Honda board can steer you to a whale tail.

Are all M3 lips tape-on, or is there a bolt-on variety? If I were to roll through a auto-car wash (shudder), I'm thinking the 3M tape has little chance, no?

The tape is fine. Mine is on there very strongly. The tape is so adhesive that it was a bizsnatch getting it on. I was afraid I was going to mess it up, because if I was off a little bit there would be mo way to correct it. I had my wife hold one end in the air while I pressed it on and guided it into place with a thumb. Looks Fu:king kick@$$.

CSL Style. Vorstiener is the company that made it for me.

The best lip spoiler for the vert would be the Alpina. Super nice, rare, and expensive. Then I would say the ACS 1pc lip spoiler and lastly the OEM m3. That is just my taste and opinion, anything else is not too great looking. But a nice rear bumper would compliment the trunk spoiler more or it would just look out of place.

Some people like these, some don't. This came on the car, and is bolted on. Personally I like it.

I believe this is available from BMW, as the body shop that is owned by a local BMW dealer, has one of these sitting in their showroom. Heres another picture. The body shop is North Haven Auto Body in North Haven Ct. They are owned by Mauro Motors.
