I3S - fender flares

I haven't confirmed that they come primed or unpainted (one site realoem says painted, another says primed)... but does anyone know how they attach. Fasteners? Adhesive tape (likely?)

If they just have adhesive should be an easy mod and they're not that expensive.

according to realoem it's attached with screws: pn 07147304573

in realoem when you see part numbers in a circle, it means that those are the subparts needed to attach the main part.

don't give up yet! the screw might be using an existing hole for the fender liner. Wont know until you take a look at a S and compare with the non S

I was thinking the same possibility. If you assume that both models start off with the same fenders, and there are no holes in the fenders in the non-S models, it would make sense that the flares attach discretely.

I hope the holes in the fender liners are the answer.

It can be done guys but a lot of your time and fabrication is needed. Not worth your while unless you are patient guys.

It looks great! Do they come in gloss black? Are they use clips or double side tape to hold on the fenders?

Hi, I have the pieces and the truth is that I see a lot of complication putting them. how have you done Have you lowered the pieces from behind and then hit and screwed? Or have you made holes and grooves in the car body? I appreciate your help.
