M Performance side skirts

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Just saw this M235i at my local dealership. I haven't seen an M Performance side skirt before. My M235i has plain blue side skirts.

I thought I would share this interesting picture.

For some reason it would only let me upload one picture. So here is a close up of the side skirt.

Thanks, I'm not familiar with these, are they the parts underneath the black stickers?

I'd prefer it if the side skirt was body color and the diffuser was black.

For the life of me I can't tell the difference between the normal M235i side skirts and these... They just say M Performance...... am I missing something?

Just looks like a big decal was added to me. I couldn't see any change from the stock shape. Maybe some one else knows the difference?

There's a little "lip" added under the actual sideskirt and the decal is added.

It's the part under the decal. The side skirt adds a lip that juts out at the bottom, while with stock, the body just curves inward at the bottom.

I dunno how this extra lip looks, but the black sticker isn't appealing to me... waste of $ in IMHO. Now if u can get body colour and the lip does it for u, well go for it I guess.

Lip isn't too evident in pictures. Can't imagine it adds much to the look of the car. I like sideskirts that flow into the rear of the vehicle, usually from a custom rear bumper. This doesn't break that flow, but still... I can find a better use of my $600 or whatever this costs.

OP, thanks for posting the pics!

I'm glad I didn't check that box on the order form now. Even painted body color I don't think the side skirts would have "added" a whole lot to the look of the car. Just my opinion though.
