Thanks for the confirmation on the paint cost. As for the spoiler, the non-dealer route is probably the way to go as I did on a 5er years ago.

The S65B40 engine in the E9x M3 is rated at 420 PS (Pferdestarke) which is equivalent to 414 BHP. Maybe PS is assumed to be equivalent to BHP when actually 100 PS = 98.6 BHP? Hence the confusion. ...
