Just bought some cool M3 side skirts on ebay today for my 318i. Does anybody have a recommedation on the best way to install them.

I've heard you can use double-sided tape.

Yes.. there are screws... when you remove your existing ones... they should be able to fit right up.. with marginal modifications...

Good Luck,

Les

How much did they cost you (if you don't mind me asking)? Also, are they OEM? Congratulations on the purchase. Good luck with the install. That is a small mod that will enhance the visual appeal of your car a lot.

I got them for $213. It was a bit pricey, considering I could of got them at bavauto.com for $239, however, these ones were already painted white (same color as my car.)

I understand the ones you get of bavauto.com you have to paint to match your car.

I will have to buy the clips from my local dealership to install the

hehehe. It's my other car, a 1993 Mitsubishi Mirage. My 328 is parked for now. The lower control arm for one of the rear wheels broke about two weeks ago, and I haven't taken it to be fixed yet. I have been very busy with work and lining stuff up to start school, so I have decided itis not a priority. Since what I really drive -- for now, that is -- is my Mirage, I updated my signature to reflect that. Just for the heck of it, let me give you an update: I got quotes from the dealer and several shops in town that work on BMWs. It all seems like I'll be taking my car to the dealer -- believe it or not.

If you look closely at my avatar you will notice the broken LCA (the part that runs diagonally almost underlining the text "328i").

I know what you mean about the dealer. I am going to take my 318i to the dealer for the BMW I inspection. It's a tad bit expensive for mostly checking stuff.
