  • Pors & Cons of EVO II Spoiler Install

    If a chance comes up to purchase a unused, still in box EVO II spoiler by TurnerMotorSport, would you? At reduced price, of course. Pros & Cons of having a spoiler installed which mostly is cosmetic.

    Front spoiler or rear?

    I'm not sure how the rear spoiler mounts so I can't give any cons for that.

    The only cons I see are drilling holes to mount the front one, if you change your mind you'll have to fill the holes in and repaint.

      It's not really that aesthetically pleasing. :lostme: Even on an EVO II, it looks weird
      and tacked-on, no? Though, I would be proud to own it, if had the pleasure of owning
      an EVO II.

      Stock is fine, or get an EVO III.
      1.) Better performance When tied with the front EVO III splitter.
      2.) You can modulate the height for the environment.
      3.) Looks great.

      edit: The front bumper chin is mean/aggressive. That always looks great.

          Front looks good with a stock wing on a street car, IMO. I say do it.

            A repeat request...where are the instructions for mounting a EVO spoiler with pics? They used to be obvious from the old format. Been trying to do the search...I must be missing it somewhere.

                Magnus....evidently as I read through, that these instructions are for OEM only. I will have the Turner version....not compatible instructions? Is there an updated version? Also, if I remember right, there was also some pics of guys in a garage installing the chin. Correct me here if I'm mistaken.....Thanks again.

                  Turner version??? Probably is a marked up version of BMW's. In which case they all attach the same way. You have to drill muliple holes into your cover. Make sure you've taken accurate measurements and get the appropriate fasteners.

                  Evo 2 front/Evo 3 rear used to be a very popular combination back in the day. I think most people went Evo 2 front because it's cheaper and makes more of a difference visually. Evo 3 front splitter, venturi, etc etc has multiple parts and was much more expensive but all that was visible was a tiny black splitter and a gasket. I also personally think that the Evo 2 matches the aggressive body lines of the M3 and makes it look more balanced. The M3 bumper isn't much of a spoiler at all and then on the rear there is this huge wing. This becomes more obvious when looking at the car from the side. Guess it boils down to personal preference.

                    Can this be a DIY, or professional install recommended? Did most of you install yours as DIY and followed the instructions as given by S14.net? Not to worry, I can have the spoilers painted after it is properly aligned.

                      Did it myself. You may have to make the holes larger than necessary to allow for adjustment unless you get it perfect the first time. It's not that bad.

                        You and this front bumper.:smile2:

                        OEM is really the best. The aftermarket piece doesn't connect/bolt the top edge directly, and over-time it looks droopy and warped.

                        Screwing into your standard bumper does sound scary, just measure 50,000 times and drill once.

                        This is how the warp looks.

                            If you have any problems, talk to Ben from Apex. He installed both my front and rear EVOII spoilers.

                              Don't bother with aftermarket. If they were worth selling, I would. Stay with oem. Unless you can find the CF aftermarket...I like them.:taz:
