M Performance Side Skirt Fitting Question

Hi Guys,

New G20 owner here. I have only just picked the car up but have already received some of the original m performance parts I plan to fit to the car. After looking at the side skirts which run 3/4 of the sill length I can see there are 14 rivet holes and also what seems to be a small 5mm channel running along the top of the inside of the part, this looks like it will take either a 5mm wise piece of double sided tape or maybe even a bead of sealant of some kind.

Does anyone have an understanding of how this is correctly fitted please? My dealer was helpful to a point but would obviously want to fit the kit themselves. I found a video on YT of someone fitting a set of carbon ones but they just used tape underneath and popped a few screws in, the problem with that is when I dry fit the skirts they do not fit air tight to the side of the car, when you push them they move a little, the same if you put any tape there as the tape thickness allows a 0.5 or 1mm push (or thicker depending on the tape thickness).

If anyone has a set installed and can see if there is any movement against the side of the car or any information on how the dealer would fit it would be greatly appreciated.

I do have them temporarily fitted to me car but canít see how to upload from my iPad, once I figure out I will pop them up.

Cheers guys,

JJ

No problem! I had some M-Performance goodies added to my G20, but went to third party BMW autobody shop for install. Made sure they did it as per OEM instructions..

Have fun for your install! Looking forward to final reveal!
