can't find part

Hey guys, I'm looking for the part number for the drivers side aero flap that's in front of the rear wheel. I've searched all over Real OEM and can't find this sucker. Mine got ripped off by a speed bump. This pic is of the part on the passenger side. Any help is appreciated.

Seems awful cheap and very unlike BMW to charge so little

I hear ya, it's always a good shock when something like this doesn't cost $100

Update: The part is actually $37 now at ECS versus the Real OEM listing of $13. Here's the interesting thing as to why I don't think I could find it. The part is listed for every variant of the Z4 EXCEPT the Z4 M. When I plug in my serial number the part is greyed out under the Wheel arch trim, rear, and only shows for the 2.0 through the 3.0 versions of the car. Did those models have this aero piece as well? For some reason I thought this was an "M" addition for aerodynamics, but a picture search of Z4s shows some with it and some without.

Not sure, seems more of a gravel/mud flap than an aero piece

Except that it is in front of the wheel. My indie mechanic, who used to race professionally, told me it was an aero piece ......... not that he is the expert Anyway, that's quite the price hike in 10 years.

Update to this posting. Replaced the part today. Did not have to jack up the car. It's held in place by 1 nut, 1 screw, and a push in plastic rivet. After removing the two visible retainers (screw and rivet), you pull the lower part of the fender liner out (released by the rivet removal), and this allows you access to the 3rd fastener, a bolt under the liner. Took all of about 15 minutes. Should you accidently rip off your rubber aero deflector like I did with a speed hump, this is a cheap easy replacement process.
