Question Best "Fake" LTW High Wing?



I'm looking for a high LTW wing for my track E36M, anyone have any recommendations? Ideally paint matched, but if not I've got a local place that can spray it for $350.

I ordered the one offered by Bekkers/Driiv Autosport & Performance (which sources their wings from the same place as MA Shaw) but after seven weeks of bullshit and no tracking number I filed a dispute with my CC company.

Are any of the ones on eBay even remotely decent?

I would like to use the third brake light too, looks like some of the fakes completely skip that detail...

I bought an unpainted one off ebay with carbon fiber risers, chinese but real carbon fiber and just setting it on the car it matched perfectly. However, after a body shop painted and dryed it (with them complaining about the pitting and paint wouldnt stick), It shrunk half an inch on both ends, I'm not even joking you. So now where the predrill holes were next to the metal trunk seams, it was right on top of them. Let's just say more than just 4 holes where in my pristine alpine white trunk I just never took the thing off. The carbon fiber risers look ridiculous and took them off after a week. My best advice is if you go ebay, rattle can it, which might be hard with your colour

Here is my old car with the spoiler for sale. You might not be able to tell from the pictures

The one above in the first post is an OEM gt2 wing

No replica wings contain a 3rd brake light

All reps other than MASHAW/Lester are genuine trash.

Lester fits the best besides oem

You will have to cut your own slot for a 3rd brake light if you want that feature.


I hope that sums up what you are looking for.

Yep abrahams sells Lester. Honestly the only non OEM choice if you really care about the details. Still not perfect, but neither was OEM

I mostly care about function and cost, but fitment is nice, too.

There's a Clubsport wing that has the brake light. Jim gave me part numbers to sort, but I haven't found the visual differences yet.

Any pics of that one to refresh my memory? I think I've only seen it once.
