    I recently fitted front and rear mudflaps to my X5 but in order to fit the rear mudflaps correctly the lower half of the wheel arch trim had to be removed. The problem now is that there is a gap between the remaining trim and the mudflap which doesn't appear correct.
    Is there another small trim that I need to purchase to fill this space?
    I've attached a couple of photos to help explain.

    Could you trim and cut one to tidy the space up? they are only cheap.

    Yeah, I probably could cut up the one I removed. I had thought of this but felt sure that BMW would already have a ready made trim for use with these mudflaps. Thanks for taking the time to reply.
