Default GTS rear wing

I am looking to purchase a GTS style rear wing for my e46, which I will mount to my CSL bootlid - anyone here bought one? Looking for a quality reinforced carbon part - its for my track car - here is another car that was inspiration for me:

Theres a german company. An american and a genuine GTS wing. You will have to drill holes in the bootlid.

The decent reps are about 1k. A chinese copy is about 400. Im surw a genuine version is over 2k

Do you have a picture of it from the rear? I've always fancied one of these myself but I'm not sure if spoilers suit the 46.

I do have more pics, will upload - I actually think it looks better in the flesh than in photos.

In terms of looks - I now feel like Scott Bacon although this is for a track car, so not really for commuting to the office.

I have some friends in Germany who are going to be investigating the German ones as it definitely needs to be good reinforced quality so that it doesn't vibrate and move.

I have been looking at these since I saw them mounted on CSL lids at the ring earlier this year.

I've been looking at the options too and found these options all varying prices. If ordering I think I would be going with the first one.

I am tempted but do we think it'll make a real difference?

Of course it will

Combined with a front splitter this is meant to be really noticeable especially in high speed corners.

To your average track dayer are you really going to notice much of a difference by sticking one of these to the boot? Looks a little daft, spoils the lines of the car and in reality for what gain?

Looks like it's going on the list then. Group buy?

OEM E92 GTS wings are still available from BMW around £750 but from memory only in Black FRP

If anyone can speak good German and wants to arrange it I'd be in for one.

Not my cup of tea, especially when drilling holes into a CSL boot but everyone to their own.

You got the Chinese version at £970


Or one from the UK at Carbon Genetics GTS at £1300

They're not the same style though. They're from the new M4 GTS which in my opinion definitely wouldn't suit an older car like the E46.

I think the E92 GTS one looks much better on a 46.

I thought there was some consensus that you're better off using the standard bootlid as the base for a high-downforce wing. Regardless, I think it looks excellent.
