While browsing ebay lately I noticed this spoiler with LED. This same vendor has it either painted or unpainted for the e39 5-Series BMWs.
I'm hesitant to pursue this item without some user feedback.
Curious about the quality and also how difficult to connect the LED portion.

Have a look at let me know if you have tried this or know someone who has.

Thanks

Ken

No, Ken don't do it!! Just my opinion, but while I'm usually a fan of spoilers I think anything other than the M5 lip spoiler ruins the lines of the E39.

Anyone who ever buys used cars online, anyone even THINKING of starting a &quot;Is this deal too good to be true?&quot; thread, anyone who wants to be more educated about protecting themselves must <a href='http://www.carbuyingtips.com/fraud.htm' target='_blank'>read this</a>.

Thanks guys for the feedback. I didn't think that particular spoiler was too obtrusive though. Not like some of those I've seen that look like they were made in the basement and then bolted on!!
I also have a Chrysler Sebring LXi (1997). I like the way, when viewing it from the side, that the lines of the car start low at the front and get progressively higher as one goes toward the back. I thought I small spoiler, like the one mention above, would also give that same sort of visual illusion.
