Black grilles ordered - F31 / M Performance parts

I've got mine on route from Germany, but have also found a dealer willing to supply the "Aerodynamic package" which isn't available in the UK yet.

This consists of:

Front splitter
Side skirts
Rear diffuser?
Decals

But it seems you can still buy each bit seperately...

Pricing wise:

"Ok I tell you the prices. But it would be better to check it up again, when you got your car. We need to know the exactly configuration.

The price for the sideskirts is 145Euro each side. You can paint them or you mount it in black matt finish. Or you put the decals on it. Price 100 Euro.
Frontsplitter for cars with or without M Aero package left and right: 530 Euro. Normally the the rear of the car can be modificated, too. The price for this is about 490 Euro.

But we really have to check, when you got the chassinr."

Mat

P.S my F31 is due next week

Great, well was due next week and now it's moved back 3 weeks. First time I've experienced a BMW being delayed... any one else had this, any ideas why? Dealer doesn't have any info at the moment.

Are the Black Grilles difficult to fit ?
I haven't looked on my Modern to see what the bolts are like holding the present grilles in place.

Not too sure I have yet to fit them when the car turns up.

On my M3 they were easy to do but took a while to release the tabs holding them on mainly due to room/access. I presume the f3x will be similar looking at the grilles they have similar tabs.

Blimey... not great!
Do you know if your one is finished at the factory?

Mine went from "in production" to "released" on Friday.

That is shocking... I trust you've been "unhappy" to them? What do they say about it? If mine ends up like that, it'll be DP and/or BMW twitter... unfortunately it seems to be the way to get things moving nowadays.

Bit more news on the M Performance bits... from another dealer.

"Hello Mat,

Yes all of the items can fitted to an F31, from the information I have we can get the part numbers for the side skirts and the grills, the front bumper splitter will be ok even though they don’t list a part number as the M sport bumper fitted to a F30 is the same as the F31. The retail price fitted would normally be 1047.32 plus vat. The only item I have not priced at the moment is the painting as we not sure which areas require painting. Unfortunately BMW GB has the parts on hold at the moment as not yet available. I would think they should be available in the very near future"

I get a discount on parts, will definately be doing this but it seems hard to get hold of them!

Found these on ebay whilst looking for my other bits.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-M-Perf...item35c1566243

355 approx for the pair. I suspect in the UK they will be more like 450.

Another interesting one...

Ah just before my reply went through... I got my black grilles (not currently available in UK) from a German BMW dealer... they will be able to supply the mirror covers too I'm pretty sure.

The ebay links in my prev. post are not the same seller I used (Kohl), but looks ok. Very impressive service from Kohl, sending the grilles for delivery 2 days after paying.

There's a thread here with pics of how to replace the grilles.

Thanks for posting, pretty much the same as the M3 then. The hardest part for me was unlocking the tabs on the originals.

I'll post up photos when I have done it. Meanwhile for those who may be interested... on the M3 I ended up with 2x the same side, so ended up driving around with one of each for a few days. The photos here will highlight the difference between the normal M Sport (black + chrome surround), and the M performance (black totally)...

M Performance Side Skirts

Hi,

I am sure you are aware but the side skirts come as two parts. Part 1 attaches to the bottom of original car skirt & part 2 is a sticker which fits onto the skirt.
In a previous post which shows one car in Estoril Blue you can see both parts & the other car in Metalic Grey there is only the sticker on show.

I am interested in the sticker part only so can you tell me if the price you were quoted was for the sticker or both parts? and which dealer could you get them from.

Much appreciated
