    Hi im looking for some suggestions i have a328i which has the grey at the bottom of the bumpers and sills the car is calypso red.i would like the car to be all 1 colour i thought that skirts/sill covers would sort the sills out but being on a budget i would welcome any suggestions for losing the grey from the bumpers or indeed any better ideas for the sills.cheers.

    dont think ther is much more you can do apart from what youve suggested...sill covers being probably the cheapest...apart from spraying the sills too suit the car

    personally if i was you i would do as gap suggested, but get proper paint mixed to match your car, you could probably get it from your local motor factors? from experience halfords paints are abit hit n miss.

    Ive not long bought my car and had the same situation as you, but luckily enough i was clever and kept an old pair of sill covers from my previous coupe and have now fitted them on, 100% better.
