I have a 92 325i it has a large dent in the pass side sideskirt. It looks like itll be hard to fix. Can I just buy some M3 sideskirts to put on over it and my drivers side? If that will work i think it would be fixing the dent and actually make the car look better.

If so, would I need to get M3 front and rear bumpers too, or would it look good with just the M3 sideskirts?

M3 side skirts don't look too different from regular 3 series skirts...but if you can get em' for not much more than the stock ones, go for it.

He's talking about the rocker panels...there are no "side skirts" on early E36s. Just look at my sig pic. I have a huge dent in mine too. I want to do the exact same thing...going to get some stock skirts next summer and have them painted and slap them on.

The part he's talking about is PART OF THE CAR and cannot be removed.

Pretty sure he means the rocker panels, you can't really dent a plastic side skirt, they usually just crack.

If your rocker panels are dented, just get either 328 or M3 side skirts, you will have to drill holes into the side of the rocker panels. I did it myself. Buy the required pegs and mounting hardware then it just clips into the side of the rocker panel, it will cover up any rust, dents or whatever. Just make sure after you drill the holes, you seal them off properly so it doesn't rust.

M3 skirts don't look too different, but they are supposed to improve aerodynamics according to BMW. They are supposed to direct airflow to the rear M3 diffuser which in turn gives you rear downforce pushing the rear axles of the car down.

It's easy to find M3 side skirts...where's the best place to get regular E36 side skirts? I don't usually see them for sale...

Thanks,
Eric

I got mine used for $150CDN for the pair. Try to find someone with a newer 3 series who just replaced their sideskirts with M3 ones. There are lots available here in Toronto.
