What are the best aftermarket rear spoilers?

Looking to add a rear spoiler to my jet black 330i. Has anyone added any of these? Would love to see pictures!

This one is subdued- maybe underwhelming?
https://www.ebay.com/itm/283818857740

I like this one, unsure of the profile? It looks like it may project at too sharp of an angle from the trunk?
https://www.ebay.com/itm/303369725451

Unsure of the carbon fiber look- anyone know how it looks on black?
https://www.ebay.com/itm/274305183283

This one just looks like it writes checks that my 330i canít cash...
https://www.ebay.com/itm/193136363990

Thoughts?

I just bought the third one recently, after a similar one was stuck in a Chinese post office for over a month (thanks again covid). I can let you know when I get it and post some pictures. Please not the fourth one that looks super ricey and out of place.

Awesome, can't wait to see it! I think the carbon fiber looks legit. Hard to tell from ebay photos, but do you think the second and third one are the same spoiler design?

Leaning towards the gloss black look over carbon fiber on my black car- trying to black out everything.

Yeah thats exactly what I want. I love the squared off angles and how it sits on the flattened portion of the back of the trunk rather than on the top of the trunk. Or, boot, for you people on that cold island in Europe.

Ha, lol, yes, it's the Boot
I agree though, I love the way the design sits across the top edge/rear section of the panel...

I feel you on that, everything else on my car is gloss black. Kidney grilles, lower front side vents, mirror caps, rear diffuser. I just didnt think I could be happy with the finish on a gloss black spoiler unless it was absolutely perfectly polished. And I am not good at polishing. Its too high up and visible, so I went with the CF.

What colour do you have?
I have shadowline trim/grille etc on my Portimao Blue, and went Carbon. It Doesn't look out of place!
I do have the carbon diffuser too though...

As I said in my other post, go over the area with some IPA and you should be fine.

Mine

You can check my YouTube channel on the install and fit and finish of the product. For the price paid it's really good

I am torn between the CF one which is "high kick" and extends out longer or the one posted above that is black sapphire, the m performance that comes in matte black.

Here you go. I think from the back this one looks fantastic.
