Rear lip Spoilers: Kelleners Sport vs. M Performance

Please let me know which of these spoilers you prefer and why, I like the Kelleners because it's subtle and really keeps with the lines of the car. But it may be too subtle--in the side profile it's hardly visible it seems, but when you compare it to stock it does make a difference to the line of the car coming down from the rear roof. I don't like the M Performance spoiler much at all--it looks like a total tag-on, almost like a foreign growth. I like the CF spoiler even less.

If you have other suggestions please post them up. I also included the Kelleners Sport non-M Sport front lip spoiler. I REALLY like that, much more than the one they have for the M Sport.


BMW Stock




Kelleners Sport








BMW M Performance






FYI, here is the front spoiler lip that I really like:



...and here are both the Kellener Sport front and rear lip spoilers

Rear lip Spoilers: Kelleners Sport vs. M Performance

I purchased most of my parts from M performance. I have the rear spoiler, the rear diffuser, the m exhaust. I like the fact that the m spoiler sticks out more than kelleners. You don't want to buy something extra for your car and have it be subtle. Your buying the piece to make it standout from the rest of the F30s in this world. The one thing I purchased from kelleners was their 19" wheels. In my opinion, there 19s beat the BMW m wheels anyday. They are stunning. Click image for larger version

Are those the Hamburg polished graphite wheels? Yes, they are quite stunning, how much do they weigh? I'm thinking about the same wheel in titanium grey.

And yes, let's see some pics of your rear!

Well, you asked. I've used AC Schnitzer in the past. One reason was that we have an ACS dealer here in LA and I had other ACS equipment on the car.

I did discover that in 'tracking' the car, there is a lot more body 'twisting' than one would imagine and the rear spoiler soon came loose after multiple track sessions. Not to worry if you don't track your car.

Here are some photos of the back. only one photo has the rear diffuser. it is two-toned, glacier silver metallic and black gloss for the middle. i do not have the kelleners wheels on due the fact that i took them off for the winter. i have summer tires on the kelleners, and all season on the stock m wheels, not to mention that i don't want the wheels to get ruined from all of the salt and snow.

FYI I just found out from Kelleners Sport that they weigh 30.8 lbs (14 kg).

I'm clearly in the minority here, but I don't like the look of the M Performance spoiler for reasons I stated in the OP. I'm pretty sure I'm going with the Kelleners Sport front and rear spoilers and the 19x8.5 Hamburg wheels in titanium grey. They're going on a Melbourne Red 328d.

This thread got me interested in a truck lip spoiler. After looking at all, I just ordered the Kelleners pre-painted to match. Wanted something that would not stand out too much. but give the look.

I'm glad that someone else agrees that getting an exterior modification is not making yourself more visible than the next guy. It is about enhancing the look of the car without distorting its inherent line and form.

That sure is a heavy wheel for a 19". Agree the Kellener rear looks better than the M personally speaking.

Tell me about it. And they dare to call the wheel ultra-light or something in their ads. Pretty disappointing, but I'm hooked on the look. I was going with the VMR 701 before, but now that looks like a Tinker Toy compared to this wheel.

I'm glad you agree about the lip spoiler. I think it may appeal to those with more "mature" tastes....
