Great video!

Are those replica side skirts and if so, where did you get them?

Side Skits are OEM, got them from "Too Fast Motors" they also have aftermarket equipment, check them out at: http://www.toofastmotors.com

Also check out http://www.extremeparts.ca/ for replica body parts.

Cheers!

I put m3 rep side skirts on my car from **********s in June-ish of 2015 and mine did not clip in that easy lol. I kept braking clips while trying to push them in and it was absolutely infuriating. I'm glad your experience was better than mine!

I usually put the replacement plastic body parts under the sun before installing them. This way plastic gets a bit more flexible and it's easier to install.

Also, I know prices vary from OEM and rep, but I'd rather invest in a used OEM than brand new rep (based on my personal experience). The side skirt I installed was OEM, guys from "too fast motors" just happened to have one laying around.

Cheers.
