Factory fitted spoiler : not sticking.

I‘ve had the car for nearly a year now. Ordered with the spec. I required and really I’ve had no issues until recently.

About two months ago I noticed that my rear spoiler was lifting at the edge.

So contacted dealer and around 4 weeks ago in it went to get assessed to see if it was a warranty issue! and then repaired if BMW gave the ok. They had the car for 2 days. Came back looking good.

After three weeks I’ve just noticed a similar issue in the same area as before.

So it’s going in next week for 2 days to go through another refitting. It’s frustrating having to go back to get this done again. I hope they get it fixed this time.

They probably just removed and added new tape the first time. Perhaps they didn't clean/prep well enough when fixing it the first time, or perhaps the spoiler itself might be warping and in need of replacement.

Yep, the trunk or the boot as we call it in the U.K.
Here is another photo taken before they attempted to fix it.

Just replace it with a new Carbon Fiber aftermarket one. Makes our cars look so much better. : )

Had to take mine in multiple times within the first two months of ownership...have been good for the past two months now. Definitely an inconvenience.

Got the car back from the dealer today and they have put on a new spoiler. So seems like they thought that was the issue. Looking good at the moment..... time will tell!

I've had this issue 3 times in the first 7 months of ownership. Last time I took it was 3 weeks ago and so far it has been holding.

Same thing looked like it would eventually happen to my spoiler although the issue was, as I found out when I removed it, the lack of adhesive on the very edge this ironically helped me when removing it. I then replaced mine with a carbon version using tape which did not turn out well so are now in the possession of Betalink and will use that when I get the chance to put it to use.
