Splash/mud guards or flaps?

I have been searching for any flap that is effective on preventing mud, rock chips, and splashes but no jackpot yet, nor did I see any E92 M3 with it, in fact, I haven't seen one single M3 with it in my area...

Would be much appreciate if someone could point me the right direction as which company has a durable and suitable guards/flaps

Thanks

I know, that's my first thought also. But I am just curious how it will look like and does one actually exist for E92 M3 since I cant find any image online.

Or there is more effective way to prevent the mud/splash? Educate me please

2011 BMW M3  [5.00]
There was another thread on this recently. I think the only ones that were found with pics were on a 1 series. They actually didn't look too bad, but I doubt they were very functional.

I think your best bet is to just clear bra the areas susceptible to getting pelted with rocks and dirt from the road. In all honesty, I already have some damage there from rocks and will likely need to have it all repaired. You can't really tell since it's pretty low, but eventually it will get to a point where it'll need to be fixed. Once it does, I will clear bra it when it's all said and done.

They make some for the 335... I tried asking if they would fit the m3 and was told no right away but I think the guy I was talking to was just assuming that as he was like "they fit the 335 why would they fit the m3?"
