m3 skirts replicas review

no pics yet as planning to some of the whole car. bought rep m3 skirts from PPCGB which I believe are the same as sold by m style and others. I trial fitted them and seemed ok so went ahead and had them painted. the quality of the plastic seems very similar to oem and is quite pliable, don't think its Abs. Fitted them today and id say they are about 97%. the option was to go with oem M3 but I know they are not a perfect fit probably about 97% again. the difference is the reps are less than half the price. im about as OCD as you can be about my car and hate anything out of place but I think I can live with these. if I were to do it again id go with the oem and spend the extra money but that's just me.

Who ever told you OEM would fit doesn't know much.
OEM m3 would pop out an inch where it meets the rear quarterpanel infront of the rear wheel since the m3 does wider there.
OEM is not an option at all

Op I also mentioned oem m3 will not fit and it'll be a headache + an expensive mod for what can be a fraction if you went with reps like those from either ppcgb or m style

Glad it fits
Nicely.

People have installed OEM M3 skirts, but they were all modified by LTMW or maybe done locally. It won't fit without modification.

genuine m3 skirts can fit with a lot of work... the mounting points have to be redrilled and that but it has definitely been done...
