    I have a 2001 330Ci Sport and the rear of my passenger skirt has just started cracking. Has this happened to anyone and has anyone got any advice or a good bodyshop to take it to?

    Probably cheaper to get a good condition used skirt in the same colour from a breaker than have it repaired and sprayed too be honest

    That's a previous repair gone bad in my opinion.
    As suggested, it would be cheaper (and a longer lasting option) to replace with a good used item.

    In Suffolk, is it an easy job to replace if I find a colour match used skirt? Thanks for your help so far!
