I just had my 255/35 pss mounted on the front with the revised fender liners. There might be some slight rubbing but I really can't tell. There looks like there is a tiny mark left on the right side after doing some testing but even if there is it is so small that it doesn't matter. It seems like they fit like the 245s did with the original liners. I am happy with the result.

That's good to hear. Do you have any close up photos? Also I assume you mounted 275's in the rear.. Cheers!

Went in to have the 2nd anniversary service performed this morning, and mentioned to the service advisor about this known issue. He ran a check and noted there was indeed a bulletin, and then contacted the on-site parts guy and discovered they had the new liners on hand, so the service was performed under the warranty.

The new liners with the stock tires passed the litmus test, which is backing up my moderately inclined driveway and turning full lock to the right for a short distance to access the 3rd bay in the garage.

No longer experiencing that obnoxious burned plastic aroma.

This had been my only gripe about the 1 M to date. So with nothing else to whine about this is now the perfect horseless carriage in my eyes and heart.

Fields BMW will replace mine under warranty, it will take a week before they get the parts. I didn't notice any problems until I replace my tires with new PSS.

Got mine done under warranty yesterday. Took 3 days to get the parts in, but free of charge and painless otherwise. New does have a different profile/ more clearance.

Any idea of the part number of the plastic piece is that connects to both fender liners and the front bumper (all the way on the bottom) It looks like an underbody cover and mine is cracked. Thanks!

I think the heat of the engine had finally made the rubbing more prominent on my 1M that I started to notice and checked this problem out, I took mine to be checked in Luxembourg and they will replace (apparently they have donw two already), trouble is I'm just out of the 2 year warranty and so will have to pay.

Hi fellas,

Especially for the guys who bought these themselves rather than leaving it to a dealer fix it under warranty, here is my question:

Do I need to order any other minor hardware like a specific nut or a bolt together with

PN: 51718051591 and 51718051592

or not?

I am going to purchase them from getbmwparts.

Thanks in advance.

My dealer denied any bulletin, said I'd have to pay myself. They (Motorwerks, Barrington, IL) of course, also screwed up on trans oil and denied problem until I got another dealer (Patrick) to change it. Wanted to stay with Motorwerks cause actually like my tech (not the rep!) and sales guy,but I am done with them now.

There's such a YMMV component to getting these liners replaced under warranty.
I called up my SA to inquire and he "found the service bulletin" ... I was surprised at the lack of hassle. WELL when I picked up the car they replaced the rear portion liners (front wheel well) rather than the front liners. It took a lot of persistent emailing and ultimately approval from the regional rep to get the fronts under warranty.

It might be due to a naming issue that I've noticed in getbmwparts (Tischer) web site as well: when you go by category and select "fender liners" you end up with the rear part of the fender liner in the front wheel well; in that particular BMW dealer's site the correct parts (that we have the part numbers thanks to this thread) are named as "cover, wheel housing" and you can't even find them under overall fender topic, despite the fact that they are visible in the diagram of fender components.

Maybe it was the same issue you've encountered.

By the way, anyone knows what I asked in my previous post? Shall I order just these two pieces or some related hardware as well?

You don't need any other hardware parts. You can use the original fender liner nuts.
