New Wings

Has anyone replcaed the wings on a 2002 e46 with after market wings if so where did you get them from? I have heard many stories about them not fitting I have also heard the certain ones do fit. I have spent enough time chasing this issue. I just want the scabby wing off I have had them done once they only lasted a yr. I have looked at the ones on euro parts.

Hi I have just replaced my drivers wing with one from eBay (pre painted), colour match was fantastic orient blue on a 12 year old car, however the shut line by the door is out by 3-4mm, I will have to sand down the edge and slot the side fixing hole, but for 120 delivered I'm not complaining seller is carbodypanelsuk, painted and delivered in a week.
Hope this helps Mark

Hi Mark,
Thanks for the response I have gone with 2 new wings after much searching and weighing up the pro's and cons, I have spoken with my paint guy who has told me that the after market wings he gets are a good fit and insurance approved 409 all inclusive of the nasty bubbles on my cils. Its booked in on the 19th of this month cant wait.
Just a note about looking at your car it looks great and I am the same I just love looking at my car sad I know but hey its a great looking car. thansk again.
