My 2009 E91 LCI Msport had mudflaps added by previous owner; the rears fit OK-ish but the fronts have a triangular gap as the sill moulding is different from the SE.

I would really like to know exactly what flaps you have and where you got them from as they appear to fit much better than mine and dont have the triangular gap on the front ones.

I tried re-shaping my fronts with heat (off the car obviously) but it proved impossible to limit distortion over larger areas of the flap.
The flaps fitted to the E91 were dealer supplier and fitted before delivery. No codes or anything showing on the old paperwork, just "mud flaps".

I can only think that there have been some minor tweaks in the sills on the LCI as the fit was perfect.
