New BMW 535i X drive mud flaps???
 
Hey folks, I'm just about to take delivery on a 2013 535i Xdrive M sport (advanced safety, HUD, carbon black, premium sound, etc) and quite excited. The dealer loaned me a demo for a couple of days after I had dropped off my trade-in. I LOVED the car...however, did notice that the car could really benefit from a set of mud flaps in a BIG way....especially in Southern Ontario. Apparently BMW doesn't make any that fit the M sport. Does anyone know who makes these aftermarket that are excellent quality? Thanks, BL

I have the factory mud flaps on my 2011 M-Sport. Though they don't show a part number, the standard 5 series mud flaps should fit.

Thanks mrich133!

If you cannot get a deal from your dealer. Goto Maranellow BMW Parts and ask for Mike and mention Maxbimmer pricing. He would discount them for about 20% off the MSRP.

Mud flaps? Oh no you di-int.

Make sure yours have the silhouette of a naked lady etched in chrome...otherwise forget about it.

...I have a 2012 535i with the M-Sports Package, and the "splash guards" I got have grommet holes that do not line up with the existing holes on my car. The dealer verified the part numbers with their resource and confirmed with another car that they do not line up. Did you not have a similar problem? If not, may I have your order info and parts numbers - both the set parts number and the part numbers on the splash guards...if you have them. Thanks!!!

my dealer installed them as a courtesy for holding my car for 3 days to replace a tire.
so im not aware of any problem with the install. they look like they went on trouble free.
i had purchased them earlier on line from another bmw dealer and had them in the trunk of my car.
so they are oem parts. some on ebay are from china.

front set part # 82-16-2-155-858
rear set part # 82-16-2-155-857

i paid $ 52. plus $ 52. plus $ 5. shipping

purchasesd from prestige bmw south ramsey n.j. parts- 888-30-parts

I got the splash guards from http://www.thebmwpartstore.com/ for a lot cheaper than the dealership.

Brought it to my dealership to do an oil change and they installed the splash guards for free.

Had them on now for almost a year and it's been money well spent.

No, do not mount flaps or guards on a F10.
You are joking, aren't you?

pal joey 12-13-2012 02:48 PM

i purchased miine from a bmw dealership paid $52.00
your site bmw parts store has them $51.30...no advantage

Although I dont think splash guards will look awful on the F10, I just dont see a need for them.
