Depends if you want to be certain of getting a genuine part.

The price of the OEM Universal Protective Rear Cover is $260 in the USA just for reference.

I have this for my 335 and it is PHENOMENAL. Very durable and the seats underneath are pristine.

Your car looks great, but I'm jealous you can get the 19s on the 328 in Australia- not available for U.S. spec. Not sure why BMW does things that way, but oh well.

Its in the boot, on the right hand side, you lift up this small part of the carpet to get to it.

Each region negotiates certain 'packages' for their market. This is typically what the F30 M-Sport for our Australian market is about. BMW Australia has done the deal with head office. We also get to keep the fog lights on our M-Sport, unlike the US, because we supposedly don't track our cars like they do - LOLOLOL!!!!

For anyone that has their F30... can you please do me a favour and check, I only have the lock nut in this right hand side, the plastic moulding has a space for some sort of small tool (but there isn't anything there). Just wanted to check in case someone stole some tool of which I don't know what I'll need it for or have a need for
