As long as the vert non-m's and the vert M's have the same trunk shape (pretty sure they do), coupes/verts have differently-shaped trunks, and thus different spoilers.

I've heard a sedan spoiler will fit M3 vert, but still researching before I pull the trigger on one too.

Did you have to do any modifications to it or did it fit properly upon arrival?

Step one, use alcohol to prep surface area
Step two, remove double side tape
Step three, stick on spoiler
Step four, think to yourself, why is China just so damn cheap?? $39 "delivered, painted"....

No issues with fitment...

What exactly do you think "and sh1t" brings to an adult conversation?

LOL,

Age gap shows in text....hence not a total adult conversation. Us east coast folk are edgy and uptight a bit as well.

WHERE'S THE WARM WEATHER?? This "inclement" weather is quite "bothersome"

Ebay spoiler photo:

http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showpos...3&postcount=45

As far as the sedan fitting? I'd say it's subjective, this looks wrong to me, see photos in post #9:

http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=476881



http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=476881

......for $40 I would buy the EBAY one and I am a perfectionist. The Ebay one is flexible unlike the OEM. This will allow you to mount it flush to the edge of the trunk lid (unlike the rigid sedan version in the photo above)

How much is the sedan spoiler you have your eye on? Is it a lip spoiler?

Hey Rhon, have you seen this? https://www.bimmian.com/LIP/46

The description says "Alternatively: you can use a SEDAN spoiler on the decklid of your CABRIOLET (M3 or Non-M3) to get the look of the M3 coupe."

I've also considered getting one. Bimmian is $175 and eBay is $40. I think I would try the eBay one first.

Vert trunk spoiler...

Hadn't seen that, but in pretty much gonna give the eBay one a try. I already have one, but the painting is starting to fade. So I think it's cheaper to replace than repaint. But at the rate I'm picking up rock chips on the nose I may just repaint it when I respray the front.

I have an eBay one. No issues and the paint finish is perfect.
