Subject: Lets rear spoiler my '97 318tis
I had mine
painted at Automobile Associates of Canton, CT 860-693-0278 (ask for Jim
Newton) for $150.00 and installed it myself. Their quality is outstanding. Ask
Jim for an install price. Stop over some weekend, and I will show you whats
involved (relatively easy), but I will not install it for you.
part (for me) was reinstalling the interior hatch trim. Some of my mounting
clips (total of ten) part # 51 49 8 183 309 which retail for $0.20 were
missing (If you attempt this you will see why). The two bottom edge expanding
rivets are a one shot item, so you will have to purchase two of them.
Schwarz ones part # 51 11 1 944 537 retail for $0.37.
Sandgrau ones part # 51 11 8 196 346 retail for $0.16.
You may also want to puchase two screw caps in case you ruin them when removing the interior hatch trim.
Schwarz ones part # 51 16 1949 793 retail for $0.38.
Sandgrau ones part # 51 16 8 191 949 retail for $0.25.
In addition, I also screwed the two sides from below, using brass
screws, similar to the way the 328 rear wing is mounted. p.s. New Country
Motors has access to an excellent paint shop.
