Lightbulb Bored...Carbon Fiber Eyelids as Rear Bumper Spats

So, I got bored last night (and maybe a lil stoned)and have had this extra set of carbon fiber 135i eyelids just collecting dust in my closet.

Lately I’ve been trying to find something to try to retrofit as a rear bumper spat.
Just for shits n giggles I held up the eyelids to the bottom of the rear bumper.
They weirdly are almost the same shape and length(tad bit short) and fit somewhat well.

It’s night time and I want to see what they look like in the sun tomorrow. Here are some pics. Let me know what y’all think, I’ll probably end up taking them off but wanted to see what y’all think

Very neat idea. Think it helps tidy up the look a bit. Interested to see how it looks out in the daylight.

so, i took these style eyelids for the 1 series and used really heavyduty doublesided type to keep them in place. The eyelids are curved almost perfectly to fit the curve on the rear bumper at the bottom. Keep in mind there are 3 different style eyelids made for the 1 series. The link to the correct ones is in one of the first 5 comments.

they look like this:
