Has anyone given these a try? Any reviews?

Thanks,

Tom

I hadn't seen these before. Price is nice, install looks simple, and they're not so large that they're garish. Nice find, OP.

No complaint here, but be nice if they were in a semi-gloss black as well. CF, if real is going to chip there and no way to make it look good when detailing. And personally have no other CF on my AW car...all gloss black accents. BUT I like these, like install as well. Nice and neat.

I decided to give them a try. Looks like they may be on backorder, though.

I'll post my thoughts once they arrive.

They look nice but it's not a lot of coverage. Better than nothing I guess but you will still get chips back there. I have the RallyFlapZ guards that provide more coverage than these and I still get some sand blasting on the PPF on the fender.

Must be pretty decent... they are back ordered. I placed an order though.

Only real way to protect those rockers is xpel. The rear just in front of the wheels is very vulnerable.

I have had these installed for about 4 months and they seem to work well. I would prefer a little more coverage, but I know of no suitable alternative. They're subtle enough that you really have to be looking at the car to know they're there. It's hard to say how effective they are at repelling debris. I do drive my car in the harsh MN winter with the salty roads, so I think I'll be a good test regarding durability and protection (the latter more difficult to judge). I did go to an HPDE in the summer and hit a cone with the driver's side. It left it a little cracked, but I actually expected more damage. If you don't hit anything I think they'll last for many years. When installing and putting on the double-stick tape (3M) remember that surface prep is the most important part...clean the car side off really well.

@Project_F87 installed these on his M2.

I will be installing them on my M2 Competition next month.

Literally the best investment I've made on my M2. Will be transferring them over to my M2C when I receive it.

Install vid I made:

Yes sir, there are many backorders waiting to be fulfilled currently but they are hoping to be caught up by the end of the month and then we can start taking new orders.
