I know I'm going to get a lot of mixed opinions on this, probably mostly negative. I just bought this wing off someone locally and I'm installing it this weekend. Keep in mind I already have a CF hood.

Anyways, here is the wing installed on the guys car (NOT MY CAR!)

Please let me know your opinions.

I realize it might be a bit high and it'll take me a while to get use to. But I think from certain angles it works great.

Never liked wings on a BMW...aerodynamically, they don't do anything...and I think they take away from the looks of the car...makes it look like crap (sorry), probably attracts more police who assume you're already guilty of something...and studies have shown that it really doesn't add 2" to your penis.

Don't change it! You actually don't need the extra weight though!?

I don't like how it looks like it's hanging off the sides, there was a carbon fiber wing that i saw once on an m3, it looked so nice, i will try to find it

Thanks for your opinions, BUT, who says they don't do anything aerodynamically? With my current wing when I started going above 120km/h, I could already feel the air pushing down on the rear axels. Trust me, it does do something. Even those ridiculous looking T shaped aluminum wings do. It's called a "wing" because it's designed like an airplane wing, only it's inverted. So instead of the air pushing upwards, the air pushes down on the car. At any rate, does an airplane wing do anything aerodynamically? Now that that's settled...

I wasn't too sure about the wing either, it looks a bit chunky and I don't like how the ends kind of curl into the center.

Anyways, I've already bought it so there's no going back. My current ACS wing needs refnishing. Once I've done that I'm going to sell my old one. I'm just looking for something CF in the rear to match the front. I don't know though, I think it looks decent from almost every angle except the back. Plus aside from just the wings, there's nothing else in the rear that would make a BMW look distinctive. And that's really the whole point of modifying your car isn't it?

The wings like 3 lbs. So I don't actually save any weight. It's lighter than the old one by what, like 2 lbs? I could have done that wearing a thinner pair of socks! Trust me, my car makes me feel guilty everytime I get in it and drive with my clothes on. Theoretically I should drive naked to get the best possible power to weight ratio.

BTW, don't think I love attracting attention, because I don't. I usually modify a car only if it's functional. But anyways this time around I'd have to say I'm a ricer

is that your own private study Frank???? did u use ur "special ruler" to measure?
come back when u know what u r talking about. you sound like an idiot.

the wing looks a bit odd on the sides....but i do like ur old wing better....
but if u like it....who cares. its not the worst wing i have seen on a bimmer.
sell it to a kid w/a honda and buy the M3-GTR Cup spoiler. (well maybe part of it with that amount$$$$$$)

So it's not looking good, maybe only Buuhh thinks it looks decent.


Oh well, I'll just test fit it when I get it on the weekend, take pics again and repost this. Maybe it'll look better on my car. I don't really like how it looks either. What really drew me to it was that it was carbon fiber, that's it. If the damn thing was an inch higher, I would have passed for sure.

Thanks guys.

Yay, someone likes it!

I agree though, it looks funny from the back because it makes it look squared. From the side, it looks very touring carish.
