The spoiler is original as far as I know & is definitely NOT an E30 item. I’ve never seen another like it & have always assumed it came from the German options list as new.
Not sure if you can see from the photo but there is a boot lid lip spoiler & the big ‘wing’ on the top.
It does give noticeably more downforce than the M535i has.
Which I would ‘expect’ to be very useful at Autobahn speeds, however as I’ve never been this would obviously be an untested theory…
As for the M Tech bodykit, I haven’t fitted it, the car is as I bought it. (apart from recently fitted gorgeous 16" Hartge’s)
Love at 1st sight...
I'd had my M535i for 8 months at that point, so I obviously like the bodykit.
If memory serves the bodykit was a ‘delete’ option, but I’m not sure who fitted them, the ‘Factory’ or BMW GB. (Did the German cars have it or was it just a UK option?)
The car would look pretty silly with that spoiler & no bodykit though but only the original garage or owner would know for sure.
The stripe is in fact Red & Brown, but on the drivers side has gone a bit orangey.
The passenger side is another, still ongoing as I type, story.
Oh I forgot there is 1 other modification poking out from under the rear valance, the absolutely awesome Fritz’s Bitz Stainless Steel Exhaust.
If you haven’t got 1 you won’t believe the difference it makes.
(no they haven’t paid me to say that)
I meant to post some photo's of the interior but i've left them at home, will try & do it tonite.
If anyone wants to know more of the history or has any questions ask away.
