Carbon Fiber Rear Spoiler

I am in the process of buying a new Alpine White M3. I currently own an Alpine White
328i that I had put the BMW carbon fiber rear deck spoiler on and really like the way it looks. The new M3 has the factory small white lip/spoiler on the trunk. Has anyone had any experience in having that one removed and replacing it with the carbon fiber one. I was told when I had the carbon fiber one installed on my 328 that if I ever wanted to take it off, it would be quite a job and would require a repaint of the trunk lid.

That's not true. It's glued on. Take it the dealership and they'll take it off for you.

The factory spoiler is removable, although removing the adhesive will take some patience.

The carbon spoiler can be installed the same semi-permanent removable way or permanently installed with Betalink.

When the dealer put the one on my 328, they must have used the more permanent method to install it. I was told that if I ever wanted to take it off, that it would probably require repainting of the trunk. I just do not want to have to repaint the trunk from taking off the original factory small spoiler that came on the car.

I have the same small lip spoiler on my '11 E92 Jerez Black and looking to replace it with the OEM Performance Spoiler but definitely would not want my trunk repainted.
