It's kind of like the roof racks, in my opinion. I'd never take them off a Touring for the "styling" element, because I appreciate the functionality more.
Well damn if you're a fuddy-duddy, I hate to think what I am considered as I have 17" wheels w/mud flaps / and the roof racks to boot.

I actually ended up custom making my own mud flaps that were a little more subtle because I couldn't fiind OEM mud flaps that would fit the contours of my M-Aero sideskirts and rear valence. I used to only use them during winters but I leave then on year round now, partly due to laziness.

My Ride: E46 Touring
Hi good day guys, I recently bought a set of 19's Alpina non staggered came from a E39 from U.K. it will arrive here in Manila in a month.

Just want to check if anyone has tried them on to your E46 Touring? Was there issues mounting it?

Thank you in advance!

Staublau metallic, ftw!

Love my staublau touring. Did you lower it or is that stock suspension with those Alpina rims?

I'm in the love/hate relationship with the spoiler. It looks good from most angles. And it looks awkward in some pics.
I think it would look sick if you did the roof rail delete. I like it and am debating one on my touring.
