Thanks for the P/N's

They are kinda inexpensive. I'll just order them.
I'm sure it would be such a hassle for me to claim it under warranty here.

Yes, I have a couple of folded t-shirts back there, and there is a nominal improvement. I just don't think it's right that the 1M sounds so much worse than any other BMW out there. This car SHOULD SOUND GREAT!

BMW, are you listening? Please give us a manufacturer-backed exhaust upgrade option!

I think I paid about that, maybe a little less from Reeves.

These are easy to install too. All of the hardware is accessible with your wheel off. They would take less than an hour to swap out.

That is a pretty big change . . . I am thinking PSS 255/35 would fit up front with that liner!

I have a 9.5x18et29 with a 255/35/18 r-s3 on it and it fits with tons of clearance. I will be running a 9.5x18et25 with a 265/35/18. I will post clearance.

This is really useful thanks. The dealer has already replaced my liners and I am still getting some rubbing. It is going back in tomorrow for this again and I will ensure that the modified liners are used this time.

I was talking 255/35/19, slightly larger than stock. The 18's would be no problem even with the original liner.

I'm going to try and get these replaced ASAP, I'm running 265/35/19 PSS on the front with h&r springs and have rubbing in parking lot maneuvers in exactly the places these wheel wells are different. I borrowed a heat gun this past weekend to make my own version of these but haven't gotten to it yet, so thank you to the op for taking pictures. With these I would think 255/35/19 would be no issue at all, I went so large in the front solely to balance my rear tires a bit(295/30/19) and took a gamble on fitment and rubbing, but it's not bad and the grip is great, I feel it the most with the brakes, trying to get the new wheel wells or modify mine to get rid of all rubbing on the street so that I can take advantage of the tires during a track day at the end of the month, after that ill know if they're a godsend or ruin the experience at the limits due to rubbing etc but 255/35 with these should be cake.

Part# are apparently still the same (front left part# 51 71 8 051 591 | front right part# 51 71 8 051 592).

Did you talk to them to make sure they are the new version and not the old? I hate it when BMW reuses part numbers - makes it confusing for everyone.

No idea if they would even be able to tell the part if the part is the new one or the old. If they have it in stock, it may be the older. I ordered mine from Phil at Reeves and it took them a week or so to arrive from Germany. They are very easy to install and you will only need an 8mm socket and a 10mm socket aside from removing your wheel.

I'm not sure but you will probably be able to fit a 255/35 19 in there. It will vary slightly depending on wheel offsets, camber and suspension height but I have about a finger worth of room at lock with 255/35/18 on a 9.5x18et29 rim.

Do note, for those saying that their car rubs on the back of the tire on the back section of the fender liner, that part has not changed and is the same liner on the e9x m3.

I was just at the dealer and they told me the part numbers are the same as existing ones and they have to do some research to see how they can get the new "modified" ones. The part dept guy told me usually they should have a new part number but obviously it's not true in this case.
