Default e46 compact rear lip spolier?

as i was walking to the pub yesterday i spotted a e46 compact and noticed it had a rather tasty 'rear lip' spoiler, also seen the same spolier on another 346 compact at my local BMW dealership!

therfore i presume that it must be a factory fit item

what i want to know is will it fit on my e36 compact??

been looking for a plain simple rear lip spoiler to add to my beemer but aint seen any nice ones, only racing dynamics job which i cant seem to source

anyway any body know if it will fit?

if it does i would expect that i could order it direct from BMW!

the spolier itself look pretty similiar to this.......but not so plastic'eeee:

Talking

I think it would fit, but I could be wrong. I like my lip spoiler better from AC Schnitzer:

I've been trying to search for a few other people. Haven't come across it again. I'll double check to see if there is a serial# or ID# or something on the spoiler after work. I'll keep you posted.

yeah nice spoiler 'TiTime'

'TT Racing' can you post a piccy of the lip spoiler on your beemer?

i'll probably get the one from ebay if yours looks OK.

walked past an e46 compact today and couldn't resist a quick snap shot

Regarding the replica AC Schnitzer spoiler:
http://www.wingswest.com/products_de...?page=1&id=837

I don't see what not. I have a '95 ti also. Same body style. Products are usually listed as e36 92-98. But then again, I would contact that site to make sure.

don't think it's the ebay one - but its closeand definitely subtle

I like the fact that it's glue on

I just come across it a while ago - can't make out the rest of the site tho

it's some kind of scandinavian tuning company i think

I'm not a fan of these spoilers, the curves don't line up right and they look cheap. I bought one for like $10 off ebay 2 years ago. I opened the package, lined it up, then promptly thru it in the garbage.

Don't waste your money on crap. Make your own out of wood and save a lot of money.
