Default Re: Admiring BMW's aerodynamics (question inside)

And in 7 pages nobody has mentioned that the spoiler was a dealer option, not factory standard. All standard E36 M3's were built without a rear spoiler unless it was optioned in.

Surely this tells us that BMW were happy with the aero and stability at 250 km/h without the rear spoiler.

That's not exactly true. There were M3's with wings from the factory. Most were indeed POE or dealer installed, but if you see a (USA) M3 with no CMHSL in the rear window, chances are, it came from the factory.
