Side Skirts

Hey everyone I have a really quick question dealing with some M3 side skirts that I just bought for my 335i. It still needs to be painted and installed, but which should be first? Should I get it painted first and then install it? Or Should I install the skirts and then have a shop prep and paint them?
Thanks,
Andrew

Paint 1st - install 2nd

Any good shop would remove parts such as this (side skirts, bumpers, spoilers, etc) to paint anyway...

Test fit them first, I'm fairly certain that they can't be returned once painted, so make sure fitment is good, then take them OFF to be painted.
More work but worth it IMO.

Test fit to make sure the product fits well before you get it painted. It'll save you the headache later down the road. Most vendors wont accept a return/exchange if the product was modified from it's original state. Although I don't think there is going to be a problem, it never hurts to make sure. Just my 2 cents!
