Side skirts - to paint or not?

Post by masai »

Hi guys

Bought a pair of side skirts and m performance defuser.
The standard matt black looks good I think on a white car but not sure about the skirts.

Tried searching for photos but couldn’t find any.

Opinions please!

I had the M Performance skirt extensions on my 140i and left them the stock colour.

For body kit parts. Imo, they'll always look better glossy. Might look ok in a matt finish.

Anyone know where to find the colour code for the red accents on the 128ti? Got a chip on the bottom of the drivers side thanks to resurfacing.
