My gray sideskirts are faded and splotchy - I was wondering if I should paint them black to match my car or grey? Also - the front/rear bumper is grey - would it look weird with black sideskirts and grey bumper? or should I just paint them all black?
Opinions por favor!

oh - gonna get pics soon... my sister is in town with a digital camera. going to steal it one sunny day.

To quote the rolling stones... "I wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted black"!! Sorry, that was the immediate answer. Paint it black, paint it all black.

don't make my mistake....after my accident with the NY transit bus...I had to get my car repainted and I accidentally forgot to tell the BMW dealership collision guy to match the skirts with color of the car, so what they did was respray another fresh top coat of grey...it looked new and fresh but now a few months later.....it's really bugging me....so now i gotta go back and pay $300 to get them matched.

or I may go to www.paintscratch.com and do it myself if i have the time and figure out how to remove the extra layer of grey....


I would paint it black

There's a factory paint underneath the grey protective layer. This is an easy (although a lengthy) DIY. Instructions here:

Color match it all. Look at my sig.

Edit: Although ignore the faded impact strips on the bumpers, those hopefully will be replaced soon.
