carbon wings allowed?

I was thinking of throwing one of these generic, but well built wings on my E36 if the rules allow:

Is the no carbon rule applicable here?  I don't want the wing because it's carbon.  I want it because it's cheap compared to anything else I can find.

 

I would argue that at this price it's not a real carbon wing, but likely fiberglass with one layer of carbon on top for looks.

Yes no carbon period.

 

A guy went through tech with a 1/2"  - 1" carbon spoiler looking decorative thing on a E36 at road america in spring when i was standing there and was told to remove it or they would need to run in EC.

$800+ for just the wing width I need in the builder's DIY cheapest option.   otherwise I would be interested.

 

You sure? It looks like $830 for full e36 kit with endplates and mounts. $400 for 70" simple wing with no mounts. Am I looking at the wrong spot?

One can never be too safe.

 

 

In other news I ordered one of those "carbon fiber" wings off eBay.  I tested the fibers, it's really just Kevlar dyed black.  You're probably good.

I should probably just reach out to them.   I just quoted again for 70" with welded on bottom mounts and came up with $580 (no end plates or uprights).
