First off this is not a post to discuss if mud flaps/or no mud flaps look better or not.

This is a post to let others know that the original BMW Mud Flaps do in fact fit perfectly on a F-51 X5 M Sport! The dealers tell you black and blue they don't fit, however they do, 100% perfect fit. I just fitted them to my car, as I hate stone chips down the side.:mad:

Below is the BMW part numbers, NOTE: For 20" wheels. They are the same for vehicles with side step (as you get cut outs for the side steps) and 18' or 19" wheels.
FRONT-82 16 2 302 409.- 20" Wheels
REAR-82 16 2 302 431. - 20" Wheels.

Photos taken in my garage, so not the best, however it shows the 100% perfect fit. This will help all those out there getting gravel rash damage. They are not difficult to fit, just a little time needed to align all factory holes.

After you had these for a while can you tell if the original paint gets scratched? Just wondering if they move a lot and rub the paint...?

They are a soft rubber/plastic material. Once on they don't move. No damage to paint work at all. If you hate stone chips get them, or drive on ice/snow roads when they put chip down. :mad:

Thanks for the info - I had done the front on ours a few weeks ago and was worried that the rears would not work - ordering now!

I did the fronts myself - probably will let dealer do rears along with some other service. I don't feel like pulling the wheels - fronts didn't need that.

I'm disappointed to see those are simple flat black ones. You should have installed these decals to let them know you'll entertain plus sizes:



or if wife is primary driver:

Sorry to revive an old thread. But could you please kindly advise if DIY install on the rear mudflap is possible without taking the wheel off?
