Looks really good, and finishes the rear of the car off very nicely.

I much prefer a nice subtle lip spoiler to a large spoiler. That's why I like the lip spoiler on my E46 M sport.

I no what you mean makes the car look better but as it's a subtle change people don't notice what has been added.
I like cars that you can look at and no that it's been changed but you have to look to see why it looks better than the one sat next to it

I agree with you about making a car look subtley different. I can't stand some of these way over the top wide arch body kits, with big spoilers. Although they don't seem to be so popular these days, or I'm not seeing them, or reading the right car magazines.
That's what I like about the BMW M sport models, they look a little different to the SE or Sport models. They look a little more aggresive but not way out.
