Re: What did you buy your Z3 this week ?

Hi

and yes trimming is required, not to mate them to the lines of the body work, but simply, to the contours of the universal fit for the overall size of the mud flaps, you simply cut along where the smaller contour exists, job done!

well worth a £10'er

It would be worth having a shot of the bottom of the "legs" of the deflector as my car had one when I bought it. The dealer tried to claim it was "easy to fit" by simply lifting it out of the holes in the trim.. of course I wasn't having that and if you looked more closely at the deflector you coul...
