im pretty sure i broke the same thing as OP off my car in the snow. but mine didnt have those sides sticking upwards... the title on that link says 330xi but ECS's tuning application guide says it is applicable on my 325xi. Am I looking at the wrong part?

The first one is probably rather far forward in relation to the driver's seat. The second one slots in right in between the front wheels. You might be thinking of the third splash shield.

Or the one covering the fuel filter? It's smaller but right under the drivers seat I think.

Oh wow, how many splash shields are there total? I think im sensing 4 so far from you guys? Its definitely not a small one so that excludes the one covering the fuel filter. I'll have to check again when im home, im out of town (florida) for the week.
Is ECSTuning Joe anywhere to be found? I only see the two belly pans that have been posted in this thread on ECS's website, cannot find the others.
BTW mujjuman i'm sorry for threadjacking. I can move to a new one if it's bothering you.

i dont mind at all man, this is a splashshield thread. as long as you arent talking about DIY turbo set up. although that would be cool too...

I thought there were only 2 splash shields. Are you sure that the one you lost didnt have those arms sticking out (the first link)?

hey anyone have a good DIY for a turbo install?

I think there are three on the XI. The first one right under the bumper and covering the CV joints. The second one covers from front on over oil pan going back to tranny and then the tranny has it's own. My second one had a small door I could open to drain oil. I lost that one in a huge rain storm. My second one did not look like the one with the large sides.

Xi's don't have the oil drain door on the second shield.

Kubica, I guess it did not have the door but there was a cut out area where I could drain the oil without having to remove anything. I have an 03 325xi.

I bet someone cut out a hole for you. Probably don't have to worry much about salt getting up there in Texas.
