    hi, just bought a set of M3 side skirts for my 328i coupe, do i need any parts to fit them, or do they simply fit straight on?

    does your coupe have sill covers already
    if so then they are a straight swap you will need to get some new clips from the stealer as these will break

    it looks like it does but im not too sure from the pic
    the sill covers will have some plastic expanding pins in the rear end of the sill and a black seal on the top running the length of the sill

    if you already have the sill covers then it is a straight swap and piss easy
    i did this on my coupe all i had to do was buy some new clips and those fecking plastic expanding pins as i had to cut the head off them to remove the skirt
    you can get the clips and pins from the stealer for next to nothing.

    EDIT: you will have to remove the old ones first

    How many holes just out of curiosity do you have? as the skirts on my car are only held on with 2 , theres holes on the skirts further back, but none on the sills, just wondering if yours is the same mate?
