Subject: Lets M3 Wing my '96 E36

328is Rear Wing

From the installation manual for the E36 BMW M3 rear wing part # 51 71 2 260 317. The down force added by its weight is 2.0 kg (4.4092 lb). This additional weight is accommodated by the trunk lid stock gas shocks. If you can measure accurately the rear wing is not that difficult to install. I did this myself to control the quality. I located the hole points strictly by measurement. The method recommended by the instructions requires two people. I did not feel comfortable with this method. The instructions dimension for the brake light wiring hole is incorrect. Before you drill holes in your trunk, make sure (measure 100 times) that is where you want them to be. Install it. If its right, remove it and have it painted. Then reinstall. I connected the wing brake light to my added brake lights/left rear fog. This gives you two separate systems of three lights that go on together if modified properly and still maintains the stock check system. There are no M3 markings on this wing. Part of my initial purchase agreement was 33% off of true retail on all accessories and maintenance parts. The wings $580.50 retail, cost me $388.94. Painting was an additional $150.00. Looks good., FLI BMW, FLY BMW, Marlborough, CT
