Pics: BMW Performance Side Skirts, LeMans 135i

Santa came late, but he still brought me my present! BMW Performance Side Skirts from Dan @ United in Atlanta, GA. Paint is perfect, color is matched.

Install wasn't bad, the door sills really are a pain, and I broke a few of the clips, but I superglued them back together, no problem. Friend of mine had "trim tools", which are made of of soft plastic so to protect... your trim. 1 bilateral plastic bolt which holds the under tray to the sideskirt didn't match up in the end, used 3m tape.

I'm very pleased with the result, thanks to others that have posted pix of these side skirts. Here are a few pix below. Last pic is the money shot.

Nikon D90, 18-200 f3.5-5.6

Car looks really nice! Especially that last pic. It's amazing how you can read the tire lettering so clearly. You had those tires and car shined up good for the photo shoot, huh? Enjoy.

No I put mine on. The skirt came with double sided tape already attached to the skirt, so I used super glue for more adhesive. They didn't line up that well, but they are on the inside, so if they fall off I wont lose them.

Yea, I should have specified. When I say "fell off" I mean the piece was sliding around in my skirt for a few days till i was able to accelerate enough to shift the piece within reach of the opening.

The dealership installed mine so I'm just going to bring it back to them to fix.

that was funny. on seeing the question, i quickly scrolled back up to the pic to take a second look at the sunroof all the while thinking, dead God, another feature on these new ones that's not on mine.

Great pic of the LMB with the side skirt fitted, OP. Nice
