M Performance parts, Sill / Skirt Decals

Just had my dealer fit the side skirt decals to my M Sport F11. Thought it might look a bit cheesy, but have to say I am really impressed, and it looks awesome. I have the full black performance grilles too along with black shadow line finish over silver body. Very happy !!

I like it. What extra do you have on the front bumper to make it look so aggressive.. can't tell if its an entire lip or two add ons near the lower intake vents...

Love your car. The side decals are just a one time use? Once peeled off, you throw them away? I wonder how long they last? Do they need special care when washing the car? $400 bucks for decals is a bit pricey, especially if they can easily get ruined. Looks great though

Must say with the contrast white and black they look amazing. Not so sure they'd actually show up on a darker vehicle tho! But otherwise well done..well done!

The wheels look great! Are they the OEM 351m wheels? They are standard on the 535i with M Sport package here in the US, but in grey. I'm wondering if the black is an option in the UK or can I get them here in the US.

Thanks! I'm planning on buying a used set of 351Ms and having them powder coated. AW looks so much better with black wheels!!

Did anyone install/apply these by themselves? Is there a template on how to line them up, etc?

I'm curious to know if there is a template for the side decals? Also did you have to do anything extra to look after them or were they tough enough to withstand UK weather?
