I would get a set of GTR side skirts, those will set if off well and you can actually tell the difference from all other.

I had those on my old e46 and loved them.

mtech 2 skirts/sedan and coupe are different, it has nothing to do with the trim.

Yea those are really nice and aggressive. I was also thinking mtech II sedan option with a carbon fiber diffuser attached.

Hmmmmmm

I mean this is what I plan to make my car look like. Borrowed the picture from a member of this forum, added different wheels and fenders.

I like his side skirts with the diffuser on them. But the gtr's are nice too.

Car would be all one color obviously, I just haven't figured out how to do that in photoshop yet. I realize it looks sketchy, but once it's done it will look good I swear

There is really not a big variety of sideskirts for the sedan out there. So if the coupes skirts fit the sedan, do the M3 skirts also fit more or less?

Here is what I found, this guy was putting parts from a M3 onto his sedan. Near the middle of the page he is installing the side skirts of the M3 onto the sedan.

Apparently the M3 side skirts are a few millimeters too short for the sedan but it's not noticeable.

"Remove the clips from the unibody, then install them on the sideskirt in the marked positions of the sideskirt (it's marked where each one goes). Then install. Takes a few minutes and is really easy."

"I tried that, but since the m3 side skirt was just that little different it all got messed up. I lost my patience in the end and that didn't help..."

Hey guys, could you share with us the dimensions of your side skirts? aka if you have an M3 with M3 side skirts, could you measure the length of them, as well as the height of them near the front and rear?

I would really like to know what side skirts extend lower than others.

What about ACS or hamman skirts if you can find any? I have ACS on my TiAg coupe with a mtech 2 rear and ACS front lip. Attachment 530184

This is a pic with my acs rear but i got rid of it and switched to mtech 2. Dont have any mtech 2 pics or better photos. I was thinking of getting mtech 2 skirts though to match maybe. Just a suggestion though for you!

I was just using m3 as an example. Please share the dimensions of whatever side skirts you do have!

I do not think your picture works.

coupe mtech II skirt



m3 skirt

From another thread. I didn't notice how the Mtech II side skirts have that design on them. By design I mean the part coming out starts off skinny near the front then slants down dramatically near the end to make it thicker.

Ok ill try reuploading it later but i dont know the exact dimensions. They dont flare out like the m3 or mtech skirts. They are very uniform throughout the whole skirt and it sits lower at the back and gets smaller as it goes towards the front of the car. Very simple looking. Ill upload pics when i can
