Yes, installed by the dealer when picked up. Looks like it is part of the original design and keeps the area behind then perfectly clean.

Yes,

Did them my self within one week of purchase.

Very easy to do if you have basic tools and physical dexterity (kneeling, etc.)

I have had them on every vehicle owned.

I live around a 6 hour round trip drive from my nearest dealer. Besides their cost they also quoted me $200 just to fit them. I had them sent to me with the condition they include Fitting Instructions. I'm not to good with cars but found the instructions and installation was easy for me.

Anyone install them on your M-sport? If so, any pics? Goggle pics don't show any M-sport.

Assuming your concern is with the contrast between body colored fender trim and a black flap, here's a photo in orange that may help:

That's exactly why I wanted to see them on an M-sport like mine. Thanks much, Von

I installed rear mudflaps on my X28 with M Package. You need to trim the inside curve on the mudflaps to fit the squared edge of the rear fender area. Put an 1/8" notch in the flap with a razor blade to fit flush.
