No idea, but they might look good matched with a set of curb detectors. If you don't know what I'm talking about ask your grandfather. They are springs with metal tips that are attached to side of the car at curb height. Mighty cool.

I think a landau top with landau irons would go good with them. Along with a fuzzy dash cover.

Dont forget the dingle balls.



FWIW I thinks mudflaps are cool and definitly save the paint job. Are some of you guys taking form over function?

I'd buy those if I were old, fat and too lazy to bend over and wash my car... Those things are nasty... And in all honesty..I would'nt think that they would do that much good..Black is a b$$ch to keep clean(my car), and most of the filth is coming from the mist of dirt from the drag of the car's aerodynamics...How else can you wash your car and two miles down the road see dirt all over the rear bumper??? Not so much from the tires slinging it up... Here..try these...http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...uct_id=1811902

like today....water spots all over my sides....white spots on my Carbon Black....gettting very upset....who cares what it looks like....i have mud guards on my TSX..looks fine....

asking someone from Florida to pick em up...then Ill post pics...so you can mock it...all you like Hardy har har...but..I dont see anything wrong with it...looks good with black and it sure keeps the car clean from those accidental puddles on the street...

Ill make sure..I put up some nice DICE mirror decor, black of course with the mud flaps.

Also, most of you have STOCK tires and wheels..and also the body of your regular 3 series..is wider than the tires..so no probs for you..but for me...I have very wide tires...285 rears....and the fronts protude....quite nicely...so my problems are not yours...

"OH you can go stock" ...ok..I cant be boring like you BMW owners..sorry.

With all the doodads on that car plus the heavy wheels, your M3 must weight an awful lot.

I had ACS type 2 wheels first, I personally think they are inferior wheels for NYC streets, its spun cast alloys and too weak for NYC potholes and bumps, lost a few and it cost too much. When I had the ACS wheels, I had the emblems put on, and also with my ACS interior parts, brake handle, dead pedals..etc...so..I didnt bother taking them off, why bother...I had the car for 3 years..who cares....right?

Sure...I have the part numbers, now we all do..but not all BMW dealers have them..so some cooperative members from M3forum.com will go out of their way to get them to me.....in Florida.

Now thats what find to be very helpful and binds good relationships. Im suprised at some of your responses.....not everyones..it really didnt help....nor did I ask your OPINION ON HOW IT LOOKED ON THE CAR....the thread didnt ask for that.

Im very suprised..or should I be?

Welll,

Now that you mention it, Your original post was:

Any mud flappers for the M3.

I dont know about you, but that question could be interpreted any number of ways. If the Mudflaps are so important to you, then be deateiled in your posts. And dont get pissed when the purists mock you for altering your ride. This forum is known for its lack of BS mods. Though there are a few forums out there that would cater to curb feelers on an M, but you already know that. All Im saying is in the future give us the benefit of not having to guess your intentions and save us the time of asking questions about your situation that you have already answered.


P.S. Have a better day sunshine.
