Twin Turbo - someone pointed out to me today that the M2 fenders from AutoID appear to have the colouration slightly wrong for the M logo? I can't work out if it is just the pic or not, but the first stripe seems really light? Would love it if you could please post up some real life pics when you get them?

EDIT: Had confirmation from AutoID that it should be OK

The picture is very likely just off from real life. The colours in real life will resemble the OEM ones almost exactly

Placed my order now for mirror caps and fenders :D

Thanks! Looks decent to me!

What do you think of them and the other bits you got?

Can't wait to see mine when they arrive... They seem a bit slow and said they should be posted tomorrow despite me ordering first thing Wednesday morning

Hi, new owner here though been member for some time as had a 135i coupe, written off by a Pug 306 driver overtaking a truck into a blind bend, and an M235i I just chopped in for my M2 blue DSG with some extra bits and pieces. Just commenting on this after a sorry tale from my BMW sales guy, he has a customer who put a piece of carbon trim on his car. Car was written off but insurance used the carbon bit as an un declared non standard part to avoid paying out. Apparently guy is still making payments with the balloon to come on a dead car. Not judging, just saying.
