I'll be back from China again in a couple of weeks. I would like to order a new trunk spoiler, but can't decide between an ACS (or ACS replica) and the Alpina style. What do you dudes think??

Reminder:
ACS

Of the two....I think I like the Alpina spoiler. You don't see very many of them and it looks a little cleaner / simpler (in my opinion). Although both would look good on your car.

I think the acs spoiler looks better on the 745, the 750 trunk is almost molded like It has a spoiler, Its a cleaner look on the 750. Im just not a huge fan of gluing anything on the paint.

Robo..post a couple pics of your spoiler from diffrent angles....the only thing that makes me apprehensive is that i think the spoiler will only look good with aftermarket wheels....i probably wont put wheels on until next spring (since i'll be traveling to china until december)

Can somebody put the link to the websites where these two spoilers can be purchased?
How much $ are they?
Thanx. DC7

ebay.com usually has both...you can't always find the genuine acs spoiler there, however....may have to google that one or wait for other responses from the other guys who already have them.

ebay does NOT have the Alpina spoiler from what i know. The only place you can get the Alpina spoiler from is the dealer.

Will the dealer even sell you an Alpina part if you don't actually own one (or have access to an Alpina VIN?)

You can order it online.

Part # 51627966293 Mile one parts has it for $768 primed.

I don't know if there are any fitment issues with a non-Alpina.

schnitzer for sure. imo, the alpina spoiler belongs on a b7.

for me, putting alpina parts on a non alpina car is like putting AMG emblems on a standard c320 or M badges on a 528

That was below the belt diz!

I agree to disagree...if he puts the alpina spoiler and puts alpina or b7 emblems on the car then I would say its mocking...until then I think the alpina spoiler is just a more unique than seeing acs everywhere.

The alpina is dealer item only...or any retailer that sells dealer items. $768 is a great price for that spoiler. there was zero fitment issues for me.
And yes they will sell u the part even if u dont have a B7.

I vote for the Alpina spoiler.

It doesn't apply to mudflaps though.. right Diz? :D

i guess your right.. it is a mild change and putting on a b7 spoiler doesn't mean one is a poseur. it actually sets the car apart from the rest. if i see a alpina front lip and emblems though, we got a problem :D

:rofl: i'm pretty sure mudflaps don't come stock on the b7. apparently, the owner of the white b7 above simply has great taste. :p

Cant say that i agree about the alpina stuff other than the badges...I don't really like the piece of the acs that sits on the back of the trunk...well i do, but only in the dark colored e65's

Yea...I was considering the front spoiler since we don't have many options for the front bumper, BUT I will not try to mock a b7! I refuse too and wouldn't advise anyone to do so.
