Mud flaps?

I need to add front and rear mud flaps. We are in snow country and also have gravel road to get to our house. So, I have read a few comme nts about the OEM BMW mud flaps not fitting well etc. I am wondering if anyone tried those from mats.com? They state they are made for each vehicle, but it is hard to really see on their web site. Any comments would be helpful.

Merry Christmas!

I bought the OM flaps and they fit great. No the easiest ti install though. Thr top fastening point for the rears is tough. The also use some very sticky tape that is better to put in warm temperatures.

I can help you get a set OEM BMW Mud Flaps and also save you some money as well!

We have them listed on our online BMW parts store.
What model BMW are you wanting to put them on?

Our X3 came with the OEM mud flaps on the rear. I don't see any fitment problem and, with over 30K miles on the car, they seem to be holding up very well. We no longer live on a gravel road but there certainly is plenty of debris on our Colorado roads. I haven't seen any sign of rock damage to the side panels, so wonder if front flaps are worth the trouble.

Merry Christmas to you as well.

they were factory options that could have been installed, but if they weren't here's a link to them on our site for the F25 chassis

The problem is they won't fit the M sport. I would buy a set in a heartbeat and maybe even get 'em painted... if only...

M sport version isn't available. Apparently BMW doesn't think that we'd take our M-sport with all of the extra painted parts to a place that would need mudflaps.
