Type R BodyKit

Hello,

i have the 07 e90 sedan and i was looking into The Type R bodykit for my car. i just wanted to ask if anyone has gotten this kit before. if you have gotten this kit i would like to know did you have to modify the kit for it to fit. i see that its says 100% Guarantee Fitment. i heard that before with my other kits and there a pain to put on. it also says that it bolts on does this sound right how do you bolt on side skirts? anyways if anyone has any info on this kit pls share your experience that you had with yours.

this is the kit im looking at
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...ksid=p3907.m29

not saying that im buying from there but thats just to show pictures for of what the kit looks like.

thanks,

For close to the same money, you could get the OEM aerodynamic kit, and not worry about fit issues (or resale value).
