Why don't people look to the forum vendors for parts before they buy stuff that is unproven from eBay?

You could have got the side skirts from JGMods here for $220 + shipping or $470 painted

http://www.jgmods.com/index.php/exte...ideskirts.html

JGMods have THE best fitting rep parts made from OEM materials & are gonna be way more responsive if there are problems...

No rep is going to have 'perfect' fitment, but since there are no OEM M3 skirts for other 3 series you are stuck with a rep.

Depending on who the mfg. is - the skirts can be short of matching up with front & rear wheel openings, bulge out at the top seam near the rear wheel opening, and/or not be flush with door along the middle - so be prepared.

There are threads that detail 'tweaks' you can do to make the bulge and the door flush problem look much better, but nothing can be done about the skirts being short to matching wheel openings if that is a problem.

Thx for the reply, the one you talk about $220 + shipping, is it painted? Cause the one I got is painted $399 + shipping

always seemed a better idea to purchase unpainted then have your local shop paint so they can blend the color to better match your paint.

just my thoughts...

pre-lci and lci e90 side skirts are interchangeable, only difference are the clips used to hold the skirts on. The LCI ones are bigger clips, just look them up on realoem

Pretty good deal if the paint matches well.

It really depends. I recently got 2 pieces from emotors on ebay and the paint quality is flawless. Perfect match and no paint mishaps. That's different than the sidemarkers i got from jbspeed which ended up being slightly darker. Kind of a toss up i think. I'd recommend researching the ebay vendor to see if anyone has experience with their paint.
