Anyone got these PLUS skirts? Want to confirm no figment issues. I have pretty standard CF side skirts.

Admittedly, itís tough to tell from a few pictures.

If your side skirts extend past the bottom corner of the fender they wont fit. If they start right under the fender they wont have issues with the AP ones.

Send me a side pic of your side skirts and we can probably tell just by looking at it.

The AP Arch Guards sit flush to fender so any side skirt that runs under the rocker panel should fit well with them.

Has anyone tried these? Seem like a popular choice on the f80/82 side of the forum. Looks like better coverage than the CF ones.

Is this possible to do a double layer of PPF? Never heard of that? Anyone have it?

Yeah I have these. Very minimal, barely even notice them and easy to install, although Ive only done the front ones.
They seem effective and they give me piece of mind when I have to drive through a pebbly area. I can hear the rocks hitting the guards and not my car.

Just so you all know, Im restocked and now AP offers a set for the rear also.

If you previously ordered a front set from me and just need rears make sure to mention so I can knock off 10% off rear set.

Installed the front and rear set. Rear wheels have to be taken off and I used a socket ratchet& screwdriver for the rear guards.

Haven't had the chance to test the arch guards in rain but I can hear the rocks hitting the guards while driving. Thanks BAN!

You can install with wheel on but you do need to at least lift the rear to give you some extra space to work it. Definitely much easier if you remove the wheel also gives you an opportunity to cleanup the wheel well before installing.
