    Well I picked up a couple of parts of eBay one was a BMW E46 Compact boot spoiler.

    and a rear exhaust box which was a nice touch at £20 all though shipping was £40 so pros and cons.

    Anyway I spent the morning down the body shop trying to get the spoiler to fit and at first I was going to see if I could get it to fit over the rear quarter part of the wing but it came apparent it would look ****. So off came the end and then heating it up to fit the profile of the boot.

    So after some reshaping and 3 screws it all seems to fit well and just need some paint which will be done during the week. The exhaust will have to wait as I need to get a quote to see how much it will cost to fit.

    Back box not fitted yet and may get them to make up a the rest of the system as the original looks a bit rusty.

    This is the one I bought.

    If I go 3" now with stock Turbo I may end up killing the Turbo so i think a 2.5" or if I can get way with it a 2.75".
