What do you guys think about just taking the damaged shield off and not install the new one? I don't plan on going 120mph+ anytime soon, do I need to channel air underneath the car?

I believe that leaves the radiator coolant lines exposed. Not worth it IMO to run naked. Mine was taken out a few months ago by an unavoidable large rock in the middle of the highway, easy $140 fix compared to potential damage if it had kicked up and taken out hoses/radiator/fan shroud.

Congrats on your deal and glad you were looking under the car as it's the most important thing to do...not because of what you found but because it's the absolute best place to look to find evidence of tracking, which is the situation in which pushes the car to it's limit. The M3 can certainly handle tracking, but it wears things out very quickly and so the buyer should be aware of this.

There are thousands of pieces of rubber chunks from melted tires on race tracks. Those rubber pieces get thrown everywhere during an event and cars are pelted with these rubber chunks which leave black rubber marks all over the car. After the track day, the owner will usually wash/wax the marks off after each race. However, the marks appearing on the bottom of the car usually aren't removed (out of sight, out of mind) and so when the car goes up for sale, there is a evidence left over.

Hey Guys,

Good thing i found this thread as I have to replace my left and right lips / felt domes. (I believe they are called EMI insulation lips)

I called BMW to find out cost of part out of curiosity and was told $115.79 each exc labour etc...!

Went to getBMWparts.com and the same cost $68.90. I can buy two for the price of one @BMW.

Anyways - the pictures getBMWparts.com are very rudimentary and do not contain actual photos, and i want to know if the parts are also covered in felt etc...as in the oem version. I am assuming they are as the website claims OEM parts...

Can anyone tell me why this part is for some reason not associated with a 2010?

I spend a good 30 on getbmwparts looking for this in particular and could not find it and came here.

It appears to be listed as a part for every model year except 2010 but I can clearly see that I have it or what's left of it anyway.

2010s are not real M3s, sorry, you're going to have to look in the 328i/335i parts bin like the rest of the scrubs!

You mentioned front bumper. So does it have to be removed to install the undercarriage cowling?

I think you should post a DIY too as I'll eventually need to learn and replace the old undercarriage. 😊

I have a pretty steep driveway which has a subtle dip at its lowest point and then comes back up slightly into my garage. Obvi, the angle is such that my M clears it by about less than an inch (LITERALLY)...however, if I am not going at a snails pace the M sometimes will rub (those felt boxes on either side..I put a few small tears in them) so i put down some of that green astro turf stuff ...works like a charm, when my car does rub, the felt does not get torn up.

OK...back on topic....

OP, very nice find, if you dont mind me asking, how much of discount did the dealer give you?
When I first read this I thought you put AstroTurf on the bottom of your car ha!

I have a 2010 and I already replaced this part TWICE!!! I got mine from ECS. They have real life photos of the part.

I'm on my second belly pan and I baby the car when driving. The pan does sit far too low though in my opinion
