You have one? You want one? You want opinions? You want a picture of one? .....

I'm not sure that the BMW Performance spoiler is a good fit on the GC, it may have a cut out for the centre brake light on the 2 door which would look odd on the GC with the high level brake light and no reason for the cut out.

Oops meant to post more

Been a long day... meant to post pictures of the spoiler sitting on the trunk and get some feedback. The cut out is all CF so it actually looks ok to me. I am told that this is the style adn that there is not one specific to the GC.

Quick question - the standard spoiler that comes on the m6 coupe does not appear to have the cutout. Will it fit perfectly on the GC? If so, maybe that's a better way to go and just have it painted body color. What do you think?

I think on that colour it looks quite good, but I'd like to see some better quality pictures. It appears to complement the M Performance diffuser and Carbon roof. Not sure it would look right on my Sakhir Orange M6 GC though, I'd need to see it to decide I think.

I don't see why the Coupe spoiler would not fit, the trunk lids are the same except for the brake light cut out. If the M Performance part is the same, then the Coupe part should fit.

I will take high qual shots in a couple hours. I like the CF. Keep an eye on the board as I am eager to get your feedback. May need to send pics direct to you as I could not upload the quality I will be taking.

The best picture I have of the performance diffuser is attached (cropped to the maximum sized the board supports, my concern is that the contrast might be too much on Sakhir Orange.

Frankly I love it. I am more concerned about the cutout on the high contrast colors. Otherwise,I like then CF much better.

I might try and Photoshop the spoiler onto my car from those pictures to get an idea of what it might look like.

Love the spoiler and just ordered mine but not a fan of two tone unless you get very close to the CF like space grey or Singapore Grey. White and Orange may be too much of a contrast and stick out like a sore thumb. Just my .02

Here's a quick attempt from the side, the rear 3/4 view with the cut out is a bit more tricky!!

After having on my car permanently, I am still very happy with it. I actually like the cut out. If you look at the angle of the cutout and compare to the diffuser shape it's near parallel. It gives some nice definition.

I like how it looks in contrast on your car. It also looks like it will be much easier to see its CF which I think is cool looking. On my SG it's a little hard to tell if it's CF or body color.

Nice artwork too...
