oops, I actually bought the M3 rear painted steel grey. The m3 sides were blue when I got them. But I had a hook up with paint and it didn't cost me.

Fitment is good, they are a few mm's short, but you really can't tell. Oh, and save yourself the headached.... go buy new body clips for the M3 (they are little green inserts that go in the body that the sideskirts snap into).... don't use the ones for your current sideskirts, they don't work as well and it doesnt clip in as well.
