They are installed on the M Sport sitting in my driveway..... You get a tiny gap on the rear quarter and thats it.

I ordered them for my M Sport today.
I hope we have enough info here for me to finish the job before it finishes me.

More photos would be helpful

If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask. I think the trickiest part is the long bottom retainer up front that needs a punch to drive it in. Pick the biggest punch that will fit and easily release. Don't hammer it in like I did. Don't even think about using some other implement like a screw driver instead of a punch. If you don't have a punch set, get one.

I drilled holes using my handheld dremel. The fronts can be installed by turning the wheels to give you room to drill the inside hole.

If you were considering a cheap Chinese Idrive system it would be one thing, but considering cheap mud flaps, buy a Kia next time

I haven't seen the Chinese version but the differences would probably be the alignment to the car, material thickness and surface finish. Both types are molded plastic that bolts to the car and do the same job.

Thanks, I went with the genuine BMW's. The surface finish is a good point. I want a perfect match!

Just purchased a 2014 sDrive20i M Sport, 51,000km, Le Mans Blue. My Indy noted the sticky 19" Bridgestone Potenza S001 tyres on Style 225 rims and suggested Mud Flaps would be in order to protect against stone damage.

Bought a set on eBay for $AU42.99 which arrived today. I don't know what the fuss is all about as these fitted my M Sport with no problems at all. Probably about an hour's work.

For fack sakes, it's rubber plastic polymer. Like floormats, I don't give a rats a$$ if it shows BMW or if it's Autozone/Walmart. In fact I'd be more leery on cheap knock-offs when it comes to electronics. Last thing I want is to fry the CANBUS.

BMW sunshades? Licence plate frame?
