    *EDIT.

    I've been offered a single OEM Carbon Corner from a Cutter on here at a good price.
    But I've been told via the FB group, I'm unable to order a single Corner from BMW!? :(

    Is that the case?
    And if so, it'll be highly unlikely to come across another single one surely...

    Think they're right in this case mate. Doesnt look like they're available to purchase seperately like a few Mperf parts are https://shop.bmw.co.uk/INTERSHOP/we...&CatalogID=&CategoryDomainName=&CategoryName=

    Good work if they have mate and fingers crossed for you.

    If not, I would drop a message to Cotswold on here and see if they could source you the single item you need. They have always been incredibly helpful to me in the past, so you never know.

    Yeah, I haven't actually messaged them yet @Telsy. Wanted to see how this pans out first...

    But I've just realised one of the sellers actually has a pair that he's willing to split. So this is definitely gonna work out!
    How lucky!

    2021's not all doom and gloom!

    Thought I’d update this thread with where I’m at with these Carbon bits.

    I now have two OEM Carbon Corners, one has been used with slight road rash which I intend to try and tidy up. The other is brand new.

    I test fitted them with the lower splitter that’s been on the car since I bought it, but to me, there’s no way they’ll fit together!
    :bh:
    When offering the splitter up whilst the corners are on, there’s a massive gap at the ends which is too big to pull in with screws.

    So I’ve left the lower splitter off now, and will probably have to swap it for a different one compatible with the corners...

    First of all thanks to Cutter @DiM3ch for selling me a single OEM Carbon Corner at a very reasonable price. I acquired the other from a fella on the FB group. Cheers if you’re on here also mate!

    The PSM lower splitter is from a company called Elite Carbon. The quality is spot on, really pleased with it!

    Today I got all the front end pieces fitted before I head back to Norway tomorrow for a few weeks! (I’ll get better pics once she’s all cleaned up!)

    Eibach springs and 15mm front spacers to fit when I return. Then I actually think I’m pretty happy with the exterior. (Other than the paint needing some attention...)

    Was very lucky to find two singles yeah!

    Number plate is mis-spaced!

    Not bad for 500 quid!
