If I ever see any of you driving crap like that, I'll donkey punch you.
Fartpipe, giant wing, ghetto wheels, all its missing is the big-ass H on the back.

The roof spoiler is a common one I see, is it like a 850 or V90 rear spoiler?

For the later 240's, an 850R trunk lid spoiler looks nice on the humped trunklid - and fits exceptionally well - I've test fit one.

This is an old thread but has anyone seen the Zender trunk lid being reproduced?

Nope. Only the Group A wing. On the hunt for a replacement for the one I sold to neptune, since I now have a 242Ti again.

If I find any in the north east I want to take it to a 3D printer figure out the materials and go from their. It can be done a little easier today.

It'd be easier to make a mold and do a high density foam casting of them imho.

Very few people use their car in a way that any type of wing or spoiler will benefit them. I have the group A wing on my autocross 242 because I like the way it looks and the whole nostalgia of it. Given the choice between a Group A and this wing I'd probably chose the group A. But it would be cool to have a choice. Of course I do like the look of wings. I have a Trans Am wing on every 740 I own and the Group A on the 242.

back in the early and mid 70's bmw did this to improve aero on a 3-box designed car:


The roof deflector scoops air coming in over the roof and redirects that airstream down towards the wing making the wing work way better and filling the turbulence prone pocket behind the rear window resulting in less drag. Should work on any 240 as well.
