Question BMW Wind Fairing?

So I just got a rack for my e46 and I want a wind fairing. I've been searching for a couple of weeks and came across this pic of an e90. I'm sure he put the BMW logo on himself, but does anyone know what kind of fairing this is? I really like the look of it! Thanks!

whatever it is, it does't fit the car at ALL. not only is it sitting like completely off of the car serving no purpose, it's too wide.

search ebay. it'll be worth the money to get proper fitment. although unless you have square bars, you shouldn't really need a fairing.

not sure what the oem bars look like. i'm assuming square. i only have a rack on my subaru and it's an aero rack.

would this be too wide? it's $105 shipped.

inno fairings are square and thin. they are also about $70 shipped brand new. maybe that would work.

The oem bars are like the aero bars. A 38" fairing is the right fit but I'm not a fan of the new thule fairings, I like the classic look of a full fairing. I'm close to possibly fabricating my own. I can get a 24"x48"x1/8" sheet of lexan from a supplier in Dallas for $15 as long as I pick it up next day. My brother-in-law can cut the shape and round out the edges real nice for me.
