Ever since I first purchased my 2007 E92 335i, I knew I was going to modify it. From the gorgeous exterior bits to the immense performance capabilities this machine had deep within, it would’ve been almost shameful to leave this car in its stock form. And with that, came some of the very first exterior modifications I did to the car. The M-Stripe kidney grilles along with a full carbon fiber deck-lid spoiler.

Starting with the kidney grilles they were about as simple as could be. High quality and painted in my preference of gloss black with the signature BMW M decals. I ordered these off of Amazon for a reasonable $40 and they arrived at my doorstep in literally 48 hours. These are an incredibly easy install with the quality and fitment being near identical to the OEM pieces. I’d highly recommend these to anyone who is looking for a slightly aggressive and tasteful visual mod to their car.

Now as far as the carbon fiber spoiler is concerned I ordered this off of Amazon as well, and with the perks of being a prime member it was at my doorstep literally the next day. To begin, this piece is high quality. I am no carbon fiber expert however the weave in the carbon was absolutely stunning and the clear coat finish gave the overall piece a polish comparable to the BMW OEM spoiler which costs immensely more than this piece. Now to the question you have all been waiting for: “How was the fitment?” Well, the fitment is pretty spot on but I made one clear mistake, as you may be able to tell from the image above. This piece does not require any drilling or bolting, rather it uses 3M double sided sticky tape. While this makes the install process extremely simple, it does require a level of precision especially if you have OCD. I didn’t put enough sticky tape on the edges of the piece and as a result, the edges have started to lift off the trunk itself. Simply put, this was user error on my part and I do plan on fixing it. But as for the piece itself, well it gets my approval!
