Question Mudflaps for M Sport

Is it true BMW do not have mud flaps to fit the F30/31 M sport?

Mud flaps? Noooo, don't do it. I used to hate my dad getting them when I was a kid, amazing how they spoil the lines IMHO

When I picked up my car I asked the dealer if they were available. I was told that the M Sport mudflaps were not yet produced. It's been a few weeks now but I got the impression that they weren't in a hurry to get them out on the market.

I think I'd tend to agree, don't think they'd do much aesthetically. Bit like those front window wind deflectors you see on taxis

I think my local filling station had some on sale, they were on the shelf in between the fur lined steering wheel covers and the door guard/rubber trims with the orange reflectors.

What is the issue? It provides protection and with the right ones fitted correctly looks well IMO! What is more the point has anyone got them fitted??

I don't mind them tbh. So long as they're not the faux RAC rally ones you see on Scoobys.

They never made them available for the LCI E91 M Sport so I doubt they'll do them for the F31 M Sport. And if anyone is thinking that it may keep the back end a bit cleaner then the consensus over on E90Post was that it won't.

I know what you mean, That's fine thanks.

Strange they provide them for the other F30/31 series cars.

I'm with the OP and always fit mudflaps where available. They help keep stone chips on the side of the car at bay and offer a decent level of protection.

Am also looking for some for my M Sport Touring. Had them on my old E91 & thought they were great.

to the O.P. I can categorically assure you that the BMW mudflaps will fit a M Sport F30 or F31. I fitted them myself to my F31.

I like them & I couldn't give the proverbial "flying f***" what anyone else thinks.

If you want to fit 'em then fit 'em, I say... they do help reduce the muck flying about.

Fitting time .. about 15 minutes apiece... I posted a thread with piccies some months ago to show others. It's easy & you do NOT have to remove the wheels. (Or rather I didn't on my 328i.)



see my post 8th Jan 2014 or do a forum search on mud flaps....
