OEM M3 side skirts?

Is there such thing as oem m3 sideskirts that will fit the 328i/335i? Or is everyone buying replicas? If so, what brand or what place is the best to order from for top quality and 100 percent fitment?

The OEM M3 ones dont fit, i believe.

Check out Mod Bargains.com for side skirts. Quality will be good but fitment will be about 99% for most places you can buy from. Slight variations in front/back of skirt

NO

YES

JGMods has the best fitting rep exterior parts that I have found - be it bumpers, side skirts, etc.

No rep part will EVER be 100% fitment, but there will be varying degrees of non fitment based on vendor. I can tell you that even with the JGMods skirts you will need to do some slight 'tweaking' if you are really anal (like me).

There is a thread that details most of the slight fit deviations and how to tweak them...

Thanks for the support.

OP Feel free to PM Me if you have any questions. Like others have said, OEM M3 side skirts will not plug and play, they can be made to fit with work. But generally most people save money by buying the replica m3 side skirts which are great as well.

Is everyone forgetting about LTMW's M3 side skirts??

They've modified the OEM ones to fit perfectly for both e90s and e92s. Only con is that the price is about double what reps go for.

how are modified oem m3 sideskirts any better in fitment compared to unmodified m3 replica sideskirts??? neither are technically "100%" since one is modified to make it fit, and the other just isnt oem to begin with.

logically, to me they seem the same. lol

Potato, potato. Just pointing it out that they use the OEM side skirts and is made to order, so the buyer has that piece of mind.

M3 side skirts

I'm also looking to purchase M3 side skirts. But I've heard that the reps are excellent quality and fitment is around 99%..So I'm just trying to decide between JGMODS with has then in Polyurethane or M*********s that has them in Polypropylene..Has anyone purchased either and could comment on fitment? Also is there a big difference between Polypropylene & Polyurethane?
