M Force Design M3 Side Skirts

I just installed my M Force Design M3 Side Skirts and fitment was great. The only problems are at the front of both driver and passenger side in the wheel well. You can see it in the pictures. There is a very small bulge at the front on each side but I only notice it because it seemed to be a common problem with other people. The install was easy and I think they look great. It may have taken forever to finally get these side skirts but i thought the customer service was good. After having a shipping issue the reshipped them to me quickly and at no charge. Overall i think they look great and it was worth the wait. The first five pictures are the passenger side and the last five are of the driver side.

the shots of the skirts from the ends looks like the skirt isn't secured to the car?

shouldn't the side skirt cover the wheel well part? or am I seeing things?

M3 sides look so right on the non-M E92s.

However, personally I don't understand why there's still fitment issue after all these time M-force took. To be honest, I don't think I will like that fitment after all the wait.

They are secured to the car, the side skirt isnt shaped perfectly to cover the wheel well part. I think it is because it is arched differently than the stock ones. I will probably take them off and see If i can fix that gap eventually but I dont know when i will get to it.

thanks for the info ... its not a big deal, i am sure it doesn't stick out that much in person, but the photos made it look like the skirt wasn't attached on

afaik, the originals from M3 need to be modified to fit so still not a good alternative.

I think they look damn good! I just PMed M Force about the side skirts before I saw this post. I would take these anyday over mod OEM M3 side skirts. I say worth the money and wait.

Your E92 looks sweet!

What he meant was the OEM non-M side skirts cover the wheel well cover. OEM M3 side skirts need modification and the fitment is still not going to be perfect.
