OK, called the local BMW dealer and I can get an M3 lip spoiler for $129. A good body shop in the area said it might take 3 hours to paint it WDP, which might cost $150. So, for ~$280, what do you guys think? The BMW dealer said they put an M3 spoiler on an Accord, and it looked great.
Oh, and those of you that don't think it would look good, keep your opinions to yourselves. :eminem: :D

Well, I asked for the M5, and he said he has fit an M3 to an Accord. When he brought up the prices, I asked if it gave the length. He said "what are you going to put it on?" :D So, I'll check on the sizes when I stop by the Bimmer dealer.
As for paint, he said it would take 3 coats for the WDP, so between shooting and drying, about 3 hours. I hear someone with satin silver had it painted for $60. :sqnteek: Sucks. So, I'm still shopping. Oh, the M3 might fit the trunk, where as the M5 might overlap the trunk, requiring to be cut at both ends, but that way it would fill the whole rear area.
If anyone else has input, it's appreciated.
