M3 side skirts

Got myself a space grey 335d and planning a few mods.Bought some original m3 sideskirts but after trial fit not happy even after making necessary adjustments to holes. We're Is the best place to get good quality and good fitting m3 replica side skirts. Seen a place on eBay that's in Sheffield(xclusivecusoms)that sells them made from glass reinforced plastic,has anybody used these? Also spoken to a guy at mstyle and there's are fibreglass. Would be grateful for any feedback as I will be lookin at gettin some soon. Cheers

Hey Mate,

I went to xclusivecustoms in Sheffield last week (alex is the owner very cool guy) to pick up a pair of M3 rear arches. The material is something called duraflex, Im having them fitted by URC Refined next week. When I went there I almost picked up a pair of the M3 skirts you are talking about, but according to Alex I would need the front panels too as the skirts are wider.

I will post a writeup once this is done, I think the material is ok as AJ from URC didnt say anything to me when he saw the arches

is the material more like plastic rather than fibre glass.just a little put off using fibre glass as in the past it seemed poor quality and when painted a part looked warped and not straight.as anyone else fitted some replicas and what was finish and fitment like.got my car booked in at the body shop this thursday so really want to get some skirts sorted then they can be painted at the same time.cheers for any feedback

My car has a front bumper addon which is made from Fiber glass and to be honest, I have not experienced any warping or quality issues. But I guess it depends where you get the material from.
