Fitment of Performance Splitters

Hey guys, I just wanted to pick my Car up from the dealer because they installed the carbon splitters and an AC Schnitzer diffuser. Unfortunately I couldnt take it home because I wasnt happy with the result. Big gaps (0.5cm) between bumper and splitters at the inner Side of the bumper. Also in the side it doesnt fit properly... The ACS diffuser didnt fit properly either....
Has anyone had the same experience yet? I left the Car there and they will see what they can do about it.

I've got the performance splitters and they look great. Had IND install them, as well as everything I've done, and have had zero issues or complaints... IMO it's the installers not the part, but I'm not privy to all the facts. Good luck

I have the same problem, but 0.3cm in each side doesn't bother me at all. i thought it was because i use 3m tape to install.

I installed a pair on my GF's M3.

The driver side fitment was about 98%, the passenger side had a big gap right before the brake ducts. Her car is white so it was very visible. So I had a strip of black vinyl installed and it looks a ton better now.

I used 3M trim/molding double side tape and it does the job fine. Got the car to 145+mph and the splitters are still here.
