Argh!!! Even the ebay vendor who I bought the single performance side skirt from just cancelled my order, so I'm still stuck with a left side E82 performance skirt and a right side E87 performance skirt.

If you're dead set on having the Performance side skirts, you could always take the suggestion of your shop manager. That is if you feel confident in his workmanship.

I, personally, don't love the Performance side skirts or front bumper. If I did I would've got them a long time ago. Matter of fact, like you, I think I like the stock 135i front bumper cover more.

PS - I do have an extra Performance Exhaust and an extra Performance 313 front wheel, though it is scratched. Would like an extra Performance 313 rear wheel as well, but they are NLA, so I guess I'm SOL.

Yeah, I think I’m giving up on the skirts. I’ve been going back and forth on them, anyways, which is why they sat in my garage for so long, so maybe this is saving me from a bad decision. I don’t normally like more aggressive side skirts, but I like that these cut down on the slightly “pregnant” look of the 1er from the side. Oh well. At least I’m saving about a grand, since I can return them and avoid paint costs.

I can ask around, I know a few techs here. I ordered a pair in 2017 (might've been the last ones left) for $180 CAD each. I'll see if maybe you can get the right side one. Do you have the part number?

At this point I think we're pretty sure the side skirts are NLA.
Hey Esteban, I did inquire about the bumper and that’s what they told me. Seems like everyone is using the same database as most said “seems like the part is NLA blah blah blah...” So I’m assuming that it’s gone. Forever.

Although one forum member here recently pieced the kit together through his local dealer in CT(?) and got them. I was hoping he can chime in and maybe contact his dealer so I can drive down there and get one

I wished i pulled the trigger long time ago. I’ve literally followed prices on the ECS site for years but never had the courage to pull the $700 trigger
Hey I'm that member, I'd be happy to check at the dealership. When I ordered earlier this year I didn't get the impression that the bumper was hard to find. I did have to wait a couple weeks for it since it was shipped from Germany, but there were no problems ordering any of the parts that were needed.
The sideskirts however are a different story. Still can't believe I managed to get an open box set on ebay. And even then they ended up needing minor repairs before painting.

Isn't there a white 135is being parted out? From the picture it looks like both rear wheels are intact

Trade you a rear 313 for that performance exhaust?

Sorry for the late reply. I haven't had any luck in finding a set anywhere. Basically I just gave up on it.

Only other option was M-Tech skirts, but who knows.....those may be no longer an option either.

Can confirm I had the exact same problem finding rear mudflaps. Bunch of people said they had them in stock, just to have the orders cancelled because no one's updated when parts are NLA.

The 313M wheels that come on a 135is are not exactly the same as the Performance 313s on my car. Also, the rear 313Ms are still available to purchase if I wanted to go down that road, but thanks for the heads-up.

Thanks for the offer, but the PE cost much more than one 313 wheel, so that wouldn't be a fair trade. Yes, I do want one, and if forced to I think I'd just buy a pair of 313M rear wheels since they are still available.

Curious, is that a Performance 313 or a 313M?

Good news, can still get the bumper and duct kit that you need for the install, there's a few other bits that you need but those also seem to be readily available through other outlets.
It'd be worth a trip to your dealership if you're really looking to do this. Also free shipping through the dealership, the box the bumper came in was huge.

The dealership is also the only place that will warranty any damage through transport. You can pick it up and inspect it yourself and if it's the incorrect part or received any damage they do a free express replacement. My dealership said they rarely ship/sell bumpers and cut me a deal on the order. They also offered to do the paint/install there (expensive) and warranty the part/work/paint for 2 years but I went MAACO and did the install at home lol.

Now I'm waiting on it.

Got me thinking about the performance front bumper now! Next week I install my headers, so I will need another project!
