Thinking about buying a lip spoiler in ebay (i.e. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...category=33638) but there're so many sellers and types of material made for this lip. Any suggestions and info will be greatly appreaciated. How much should the paint/installation jobs cost for local bodyshop quality work. Thanks again you guys.

well I bought a lip spoiler for my car off ebay. To install it, it took me 5 mins its really easy, but you have to be really carefull to get it in the right place. I have a black car and the spoiler was also black so no need to paint it. I first went to a BMW dealership to see how exactly its was placed. It did make minute handling difference at high speed, but not much difference. However still worth the 40 bucks.

Hey Guys,

There is also a rubber lip spoiler available. Just wondering if those are worth getting? Any disadvantages???

Thanks,
Peter

I just got one off ebay and I was very pleased. The seller was chromebest. I got it unpainted b/c my father owns a body shop and he painted it for me. But this seller delivers via fed-ex and you could probably get it the next day. For 70 bucks you can get one unpainted and a shop will probably charge you around 100 bucks to paint it but it beats buying the painted ones for 250. Good luck, post pics once it is on.

Great thanks for the info! I will start looking for an unpainted one soon.

Do any paint shops do the job as long as I know my paint code? Mine is 354 Titanium Silver. Anyone know where I can get the painting done? Is it a good assumption that they will put clear coat on as well?

Thanks for all your help.
