In fact, it is very difficult to determine whether it is an original rear spoiler of a BMW E36 Class II / 2 Motorsport International or one of the coupe variant, the special model BMW E36 AVUS Edition with the special equipment (SA) 766, especially if it is still mounted on the tailgate. In contrast to the special model BMW E36 M3 GT Motorsport International, these spoilers do not have an oval recess on the underside of the spoiler, where the KBA sticker can be framed and stuck. At that time, BMW AG left the original spoilers of the BMW E36 Class II / 2, the BMW special edition model AVUS Motorsport International and the special model BMW M3 GT of the E36 series from PFEBA Kunststofftechnik GmbH, Wertstraße 36, 73240 Wendlingen / Neckar im Produce order.

If the spoiler is therefore still installed on the tailgate, the inexperienced person can only recognize whether you have an original BMW E36 Class II / 2 spoiler in front of you based on the accuracy of fit or processing of the spoiler. It is the small things in the shape, curvature and curves that are difficult for the inexperienced to recognize, which is how you can distinguish the original from the replica. Since the coupe variant of the AVUS EDITION Motorsport International special model, in contrast to the optically identical spoiler of the BMW M3 GT, has no recess for the sticker, this cannot be a clear indication of the originality of the spoiler in the coupe variant to take. So if you want to be absolutely sure, the spoiler has to be removed from the tailgate.
