Will mud flaps fit aero side skirts?

Quick question, will mud flaps fit aero side skirts?

Thanks.

Don't read this as me being an ***, but there are mudflaps available for the M?

I can't see why they wouldn't fit though, if there is such a thing, as the aero side skirts more or less fit like stock. But I just keep seeing Yosemite Sam and "Backoff!" or those "chick" outlines when I think mudflaps!

Yes they will. I have them installed on the aero side skirts on my Z4 M coupe.

It's actually not as bad as you would think. It's barely noticeable for the front ones. It's definitely better than having the side panels blasted by rocks/gunks.

Does not look too bad. But if you really don't want to see them, cover your rocker panels with 'ClearBra' type of material. Then you won't need the flaps and the sides stay nice.

Isn't that an oxymoron?

I think they would look a lot better if painted to match the car. The clear bra material is the best idea for invisible protection though...

If you color it you will see more.

Very true...'ClearBra' can be an option if you don't like seeing the flaps. But for me, I actually like having the front flaps as it provides a better transition from the front wheels to the flat, tucked-in lower side panels (at least for the OEM panels).

Second that. Why pay a shitload of money for something nice then ruin it with the mudflaps? Install Clear bra and enjoy

Sorry to bring an old thread back to life.

I got my alpine white MC about 2 months ago. I'm noticing that even that I never drive when it is wet out the rear bumper area where the red bumper lens is accumulates a ton of superficial dust/dirt.

Anyone know if rear mudguards will help this?

Welcome to the Alpine White curse. The dust is cause by the air turbulence in the rear. It's going to happen.
