    Ditto for me. I have the same config (pearl white + performance gray wheels). I think it looks great.

    Regarding the impact on range, if you need to go over 100mph for it to add noticeable downforce wouldn't this also imply the you have to go over 100mph for it to have a tangible impact on range as well? My guess is the impact on range is negligible.

    I was told that it is easily removeable. I too was uncertain about it, but since it's a "no cost" option on performance model I opted to get it and will make a decision once the car is here.

    Frankly I forgot to update my design and didn't remember when I signed. So I guess it wasn't meant to be. I was indecisive but was leaning toward the no side. I would have like to get it unattached and given it to a non performance person that liked it. Oh well. Senior moment!

    Yep, pearl white cf spoiler. In my opinion it gets lost on the black car, and the others does not provide enough contrast. The spoiler on the white gives it a nice sporty look.

    Anyone have pictures of a black with spoiler?? I have seen a few, but they are all more 'close-ups'...

    I would like to pick up a spoiler from my wife's car, but she isn't interested in the CF look and would prefer for it to match her car paint color (gray). I strongly disagree with her but its not my car....Since these spoilers seem hard to come by has anyone found a 2nd source? I would think you would need the original spoiler for a shop to copy.

    Also if the part can't be 2nd sourced can the CF be painted to match the car color? Any idea what these spoilers are selling for?

    Thanks,

    Ken

    I love the spoiler on the new red with 21" gray wheels. Looks terrible on black. Lovely on new red and white. Remove would probably just be a hairdryer and floss. Did remove my spoiler on the BMW 1M to replace it with a carbon one. I will order with for my red p85 and remove it later if I dont like it.

    Sufficient down force to hold the car against the ceiling!

    Ordered the "P" but not the spoiler. I prefer the subtle upsweep of the rear without it.
