Question Question: BMWChop Spoiler

I’m considering getting a boot spoiler for my S2000 and one from BMWChop seems to be the only sensible choice. However, I’ve done a bit of searching of other relevant posts and I have a question still outstanding that I haven’t got a definitive answer for:

How heavy is the spoiler? Or, if I ask it another way, does the boot lid still spring up slightly when the catch is released by the boot release push button or key-fob?

The OEM spoiler kit came with stronger boot springs to compensate for the extra weight (and a dedicated spring fitting tool), does the BMWChop spoiler need stronger springs (and where do you get them from), or not?

Grateful for any insight.

The boot still pops on mine but needs more assistance to open fully. Never been an issue for me.

When you buy the OEM Honda rear spoiler it comes with new (stiffer) boot springs to offset the additional weight of the spoiler.

when i had the bmw chop spoiler installed, as Nottm stated the boot popped up but on occasions would require slight assistance towards the top. The spoiler is actually very light and very well made. Once installed you honestly will struggle to know it was not OEM.

Ive gt one on mine too and the color match was spot on. My boot does pop but only slightly. I actually need a new one after 5 years as the paint is started to flake on it. Not bad for £70.

I just bought the spoiler from BMWchop last month.
Fully fitted.

I can confirm that with the weight of the spoiler on the boot lid, it doesn't lift up as far as before (without spoiler).
However with the spoiler, it does pop up and clears the catch.

It is not a major issue and you will probably won't even notice the difference.
The spoiler does act as a lever to help lift the boot lid up.

Delivery was within 2 days (impressive) and no customs duty was charged.
The seller was excellent. I can see why so many of us on here have bought it.

The quality was very impressive and the colour match was excellent.
I really cannot fault it and it is probably one of the best bargain buys for the s2000.

I had a 15% of voucher at the time from ebay so used it towards the purchase so worked out to be £58.65 posted. lol

I didn't use the supplied double sided tape and would recommend getting genuine 3M double sided automotive tape.

Although that's entirely up to you.








Hope it helps

On a side note i have had mine about 5 years now and the laquar has started to react and has lots of dimples coming through. Its not easy to see by eye and 5 years isnt bad for such a cheap item!

Have this company done the matching front spoiler? Something rings a bell about the name but I don’t remember any feedback.
