Hi, I have recently put the aero kit front and rear bumper on my car and I am now looking for the side skirts does anyone know of anywhere that does them at a decent price?

Thanks Attey

i havent used them as ebay beat them to the post but this website seems reasonable & quoted me £450 fully painted & delivered or they charge £279 delivered un painted
They take 4-5 day for delivery

www.mystylemini.co.uk - exterior styling, mini, genuine/other

Personally ebay i dont think you will have much luck as i been looking for weeks & they go for stupid money as everyone wants them

Also may be worth giving mini matt a bell as he sometimes has aero parts in put its pot luck if he has any & in your colour. I can highly recommend him. - MiniMatt - MiniMatt - BMW Mini - BMW Mini Modifications - BMW Mini Parts and Spares - BMW Mini Repairs

Hope that helps

Well did they warn you before they painted them ?? Because I doubt you'd have had the job done if they did !!
I'll ask the painter that did my car for his opinion if you like ? How much did you pay BMW ?
I don't think I better tell you what mine cost !! The lot stripped, painted and refitted with all clips supplied, well less than your skirts cost.

yes please ask the person that painted your's for me,and no they didn't say that they would be a lighter colour
Will do, my car was a trial run as the painter had never stripped/refitted all the plastic on a MCS but is a "Custom Painter" and Dave at ThinkMini was impressed with the paintwork etc.
£200 for a unwanted two tone paintwork job and just on skirts :confused: Mine £133 for the lot including stipping and fitting. OK the guy said it should have more but that's what "I quoted" Can you be fairer than that ?

Painter said BMW didn't do the job properly, could be a number of reasons but would need to see the car to give an opinion but suspects paint code, hope that helps. :)

I didn't say they were White !! Painter said white is difficult, you need THE CAR and paint code and then juggle to get it right.
BMW just gave the sills and paint code to a painter, that does not work on white he said.

There are a few Mini colours that are difficult to match. Using the colour code and BMW/Mini paints doesn't always guarantee a close match. The car has to be seen and sprayouts done to determine a match. That's what we'd do ;)

Correct:) And my painter said the same "car has to be seen" He specialises in Aluminum Flaked motor bike tanks. So if you get anyone in the Worcestershire area give me a shout and I will do likewise. There are pic's of my car on site.

Im considering buying sideskirts, getting them painted BRG and getting them fitted, how much would this cost in total for someone to do? Or could I do the fitting side of things myself, how difficult is this?
