Installation time

The installation time is approx. 0.75 hours. This may vary depending on the condition of the car and its equipment package.

Important information

These installation instructions are primarily designed for use within the BMW dealership organisation and by authorised BMW service companies.

These installation instructions are intended for use by qualified specialist staff trained on BMW cars with the relevant expert knowledge.

All work must be completed using the latest BMW repair manuals, wiring diagrams, servicing manuals and work instructions, in a logical order, using the prescribed tools (special tools), and observing current health and safety regulations.

If you experience installation or functional problems, restrict troubleshooting to approx. 0.5 hours for mechanical work and 1.0 hour for electrical work.

To avoid unnecessary extra work and/or costs, send an inquiry straight away to the technical parts support team via the Aftersales Assistance Portal (ASAP).

Quote the following information:

  • VIN,
  • Retrofit kit part number,
  • A detailed description of the problem, – Any work already carried out.

Do not archive the hard copy of these installation instructions, since daily updates are provided via ASAP.

Installation information

All illustrations show LHD cars; proceed similarly on RHD cars.

Installation is shown only on the left-hand side of the car; proceed in the same way on the right-hand side of the car.

If the M Performance Motorsport strips (part number: 51 14 2 351 090) is installed on the F82 in association with the M Performance Motorsport strips sticker, M Performance lettering E of M Performance side skirt films (Part number: 51 14 2 350 706) must not be installed. The areas being bonded must be completely dry, clean and free from wax or grease.

The ambient temperature for bonding work must not fall below or exceed 15°C or 35°C respectively.

The film adjusts to the surface of the car under the influence of heat (direct sunlight, hair dryer); if required this can be used to get rid of air bubbles trapped underneath it.

M Performance side skirt films A and B must be completely smoothed with the blade around the visible area at the bottom. We recommend using a lifting platform.

Special tools required

Blade (Part No. 51 91 0 416 502)

Information to be supplied to the customer

  • The car may be driven after approx. 6.0 hours and may be taken through a car wash after approx. 72.0 hours.
  • When using high-pressure steam cleaners the following restrictions must be observed:
  • Maintain minimum distance between cleaning nozzle and bodywork: 1 m
  • Maximum temperature: 60 °C
  • The cleaning jet should not be angled at more than 30° from perpendicular to the bodywork- The film should be thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis (every 8–10 weeks).
