Thanks guys!

Even if we had 4 or 5 or 6 of the same color, still the same discount for paint :biggrin:! Anything higher than 3 and we're good to go

I'm going crazy waiting for my coupe - and I won't buy anything model-specific until it arrives (bad karma.)

In the meantime my mind is going crazy with all of the things I want to do!

So the question of the day is: Is there a way to create a duct from the hole in the side skirts to the rear brakes for cooling? That would be the T*TS :w00t:

Have Fun,
Rick

You have to line them up just right and they will snap right in.

I have been trying for two hours now, the rear snaps in fine, but the front just wont go in. I could put the old ones back on real easily.

I bought eunosracr's 135 sideskirts for my 128, and I swapped them out in 1 hour including removal. Start at the front and make sure the skirt is underneath the flap, work your way back and snap in the rear. Are you sure you didn't bend something during removal?

This is a lousy pic but it shows the leading edge of the driver side skirt slides UNDER the mounting tab.

Yeah I got it under the flaps, I am more concerned about the top where its supposed to snap in. pretty sure I didnt bend the plastic pieces. neither side will snap in. I will try again tomorow. I appreciate all the help and advice!

This is hard to explain, but in the back there are plastic snaps on the car that face inward from opposite directions. The lip of the skirt slides in between these snaps, not on top or below.

Is there another Group Buy coming on these? Or can I just order them online?

My car is completed, and awaiting transport. I'd like to have the painted side skirts as well as the M Door sills in my hands by the time I take delivery.

Oh, man, the wait is too much!

OBTW, Dan, I asked (here) the other day if there was a way to turn the hole in the skirts into a cooling duct for the rear brakes - any such possibility?

Have Fun,
Rick

Hey Dan,

You can create your own hole, but the Perf. Skirts don't come with one. Just a cool-look effect. The group buy is for paint only. If you have 2 more people wanting to get the skirts painted for a total of 3 people, I'll be able to discount the paint

I had to order the bumper from BMW. If you check your e-mail (I believe) you should have received an update of "currently being painted" in your e-mail
