ok well i went to the local wrecking yard and they had a 97 m3 coupe. they told me that if the side skirts had no damage then they would sell them to me for 50 bucks each. i thought this was a good price, but wanted to make sure that the 97 m side skirts will fit on my 95 325is. i am not really interested in them if i have to do much work, but if they will fit fine then im gonna buy em this tuesday. thanks for you help guys

I dont think there should be a problem getting those on. Same body size/length.

When I researched the TIS, I see the same installation information for both vehicles.

Here is a document I put together for you that outlines how to do it. I am sure you can disregard the drilling part, as that pertains to a brand new piece only. [attachmentid=22118]

It won't look odd, i have seen people put them on backwards though and that looks a little weird.
I thought about skirts but decided that the skirts on my is look good to me and i would rather replace the bumpers first, but for $100 for the pair sounds good. How much to paint them or are they the right color already?

Edit: I do remember hearing something about the 325 and 328 differences. The 325 aparently you bolt over your existing skirts and the 328 you just replace outright. you might look into this too, although i am sure you could sell them again if they did not work.
