Help! I have a '97 BMW 328i sedan that used to have an LTW Wing (high version) which I ended up selling and now I regret it. I'm looking for a replacement.. any idea where I can buy another e36 LTW replica Wing / Spoiler (high model)... I originally bought it off Ebay and can no longer find them. Many thanks for your help!

Mikester: Thanks!! - I noticed on their website that they do have the high one.. but it says it's for the coupes only. I guess I'll email them to find out... thanks again!

you can find those spoilers on www.mashaw.com they have a CF one i believe, but i hope money isn't an issue, this LTW wing is FULY functional, and because of that comes with a nice G note as a price tag!

Happy shopping!

guys i think for e36 the best look is just an m5 lip.. its such a clean look

SebSter: Agreed.. the E36 looks good with no wing or spoiler but I have a major problem on my hands. Since I already had an LTW wing on there, it left me with 4 holes in my trunk lid.. so I either have to get the entire trunk repaired and repainted or just replace the wing with the identical. I've been driving my E36 for 2 years with plastic plugs in the trunk lid.. doesn't show unless you're up close, but just knowing that they're there bothers me.

*** UPDATE ***

I found a replacement LTW wing from the same guy who sold me one over 3 years ago! It's ironic.. but this guy (living in Florida) has gone out of business, but he replied to my email saying that he has one wing leftover from his stock! Wooohooo... now I'm happy! Thanks to everyone who replied.

lol, i know what thats like, i used to have a bigger wing on but it cracked + i was starting not to like the look anymore so i just got an is trunk lip.. it covered up two of the holes but i still got two holes in the trunk.. not too sure what im gonna do about it, prolly just fill it in with bondo and try to color match the best i can

Been there, done that.. still have the 'replacement wing' in my basement. I had the big LTW wing and one day someone made a comment that it looked stupid on my car. *sad*

Of course I took offence and the next day I removed the wing from the car. I later found the smaller version of the LTW wing thinking that the bolt holes would line up to my old ones. Not even close! The problem was that I had sold my old LTW wing on Ebay so it was gone. Now having driven the car for 2 years w/o the Wing.. I miss the look of it, looking back at my old pictures! Check it out! Let me know what you guys think! :rolleyes:

Mikester: I have a brand new 'low version' LTW spoiler with all mounting hardware. It's 2 pieces, 7 layers of fiberglass.. primed and ready for paint. I had purchased it to replace my high version LTW spoiler.. but now that I have one on order, I'm looking at selling the low version. Please let me know if interested.. I'll give you a good deal on it.
