Hi guys, I just went to the stealership for a base estimation on repainting my side skirts and bumpers. I have the grey side skirts and want them color matched to my car, as well as the bottom of the front and rear bumper. I was talking to their bodyshop guy and asked him about just swapping them out for different bumpers and side skirts (m3 style) He said that the side skirts were welded on and would have to be cut off to change them. Upon closer inspection, it does actually look like their welded on.
Have any of you guys run into this issue and if so, any suggestions on getting around it?

I dont get it. Why would a stealer weld them on? I dont know of any that do standard. Mine arnt and their standard and the same size as M3 ones, so M3 ones wouldn't go over them. Unless as mentioned before its after market work which i have seen done before. Have you got any pictures to post? That should help us tell you by how it looks.
And anyway, arnt the skirts plastic? I wouldnt try welding that....
