Where can I buy this? Is it OEM? Pics inside.

I saw an e46 with a wing spoiler today, and I'm ashamed to say, it looked really nice. It was a 325ci, and it had a few other tasteful mods as well, and I thought the spoiler actually made it look much, much better. I hadn't seen one before, and it wasn't overdone at all. It looked to be an OEM spoiler, but like I said, it's the first time I've seen it. This is what the car I saw had:

http://forum.e46fanatics.com/attachm...7&d=1240778238

I always thought the OEM spoiler was a lot uglier than this. I've seen quite a few cars around here that have it and it's hideous, IMO. This is what I've usually seen:

What do you all think? I really like it. it's the only wing I've ever seen on an e46 that doesn't look r1cey, but it really sets it apart. If I can't find where to get it, I'll probably opt for an ebay lip.

Thanks in advance!

Same here. Sorry if I didn't word it correctly. The third spoiler is the one I see around here a lot that I don't like at all. Way overdone, but to my understanding that's the OEM spoiler.

First 2 pics are of the factory Aero package spoiler. I have a factory installed one on my Alpine White 2000 323Ci and I don't like it. Anyone want to trade trunks?

Thanks so much. That's exactly what I was looking for.

I've seen that before, but it's a little more aggressive than what I'm going for.

If my car was AW I definitely would!

Hahaha, it does. Gotta be the ugliest rear end ever on an e46.
That's kinda how I feel about it. If it was more popular I probably wouldn't like it as much, but it's so unique and so subtle at the same time. If I get it I'll post some pics

I'm guessing the people that like this are somewhere out in the sticks (TN, AL, etc) and are 18-21 years old?? Just a guess!

Close. I live in Tennessee, and I'm 16. I'm from California though. Honestly, I can't believe I like that wing. I was mad at myself for admitting I liked a spoiler on a BMW, but the more I looked at it, the more I liked it. Btw don't flame me for being 16. I'm not spoiled, and I payed for the car with my own money. Thanks

I guess you're not from "the sticks" because you were actually able to read my location in the side bar? That's pretty impressive, especially since spoilers are more of a west-coast thing anyway. I can't tell you how many times I've done a in California from seeing stuff like this
