I ordered them from eBay, but they are OEM BMW parts. Not expensive, less than $70 for the set of four if I recall. Do a thread search and you can find more details. They were simple to install, took about an hour, but I needed to obtain some longer push-type fasteners from the autoparts store. The ones I removed that were on the car during install got a little jacked up when I popped them. Not a big deal though.
They really help keep the sides of the car clean and deflect dirt/gravel.
