Iím not much of a spoiler guy, so Iíll let others weigh in on that... BUT, if you ever decide to address the license-plate holes, I have a recommendation there: Bumper Plugs! https://www.bumperplugs.com/index.ph...&product_id=73

Color matched and looks great filling obvious holes. I say that because with your color, those holes are almost imperceptible. I wouldnít notice had you not mentioned it in your post, and had to zoom way into see them.

But Iím ordering them today to put on a Space Grey x3 that is on itís way to me. And had them on my previous 535i as well, they hold up really well.

I have the first one and really like it. I think the second one is a bit too much.

I took it in for the last time under its 4 year 50k warranty to get checked out. It turns out they did a pan gasket. Good thing I had them look.

I definitely had the bumperplugs on my radar before taking the holder off. I'm contemplating wrapping it, so I'd probably get them fixed before then.

I think I may prefer the first one too. I definitely didn't like the carbon of the second one, but the shape interested me. Thanks for the input!

I'm not a fan of spoilers either. They cross the line between smart and snarky. But if you must, definitely the skinniest one.

Installed new stock BMW front spoiler today.
On one of my activities during pandemic drives, hit either a fox or a possum. Little f’er just shot right out and lost his existence.

Awesome!!! Did you buy from dealer and going to get paint shop to paint it? Or somehow order it pre painted?

Iím about to exalt my 6er from daily driver to fair weather driver... (picking up an x3 for the stable!!!!) and realized the paint chips I got on the front end in just one fall/winter of Colorado driving are atrocious!!!
