After 6 hours of washing/ claying/ polishing and waxing  phew!, I took the car for a country road twisty drive. Took a pic of the car (several in fact) and have been in a dilema whether to fit a rear spoiler or not. Cast your votes and opinions

Yes!

Cats know your every thought.

But don't care.

The lip IMO, nice and subtle.

I'd got with the standard type with the brake light. I fitted one to mine (well,
I mean professionally fitted) and I love the result. I was contemplating a GT
type but I'm glad I went with the standard one.

I've gone for leaving it as it is.

Thats on the basis that I'm presuming it didn't come with one as standard and that its thereby nothing but cosmetic tack.  I don't think any of the options improve the look of the car - but leaving it as it is means you're left with what looks like a very nice car already.

Can't make my mind up - but to have a roof spoiler I think you'd have to have a standard boot spoiler as well.

The rear spoiler was part of the aerodynamic styling included in the sport pack as fitted to the 318is.

this is the sport pack spec,

Keep the shape as clean as possible and leave as is IMO. A lip is too E46 wannabe and the other options are a bit drastic.

I would fit a spoiler, but a rear lip style as the one shown here;

I have a normal spoiler on mine, going to take that off and fit it onto our demo car and then get myself one of these - I think they keep the lines clean but subtly add that that special touch
