I was able to find 4 genuine BMW pieces for front and rear bumper for $120 which is good price. They were scuffed up from PO.

The 6 side pieces are faded and are $300+ for genuine ones. I'm considering painting them with high quality SEM trim paint which if plastic is prepped correctly will produce excellent results.

But if these are decent quality, the price is really reasonable. There is one review on ECS Tuning (sister company) but I'd really prefer to hear from somebody here.

TIA.

I dunno what someone would tell you, that is a great price and its highly likely to work out just fine. Otherwise pay up for the BMW parts.

Actually, this is what you get:
https://www.ecstuning.com/b-ecs-parts/shadowline-door-moulding-6-piece-set/004500ecs01/

As most here know they are one company now and TM link has the wrong picture. So 2 options:

1. Leave it as is and loose side M5 emblem.

2. Transfer emblem from original ones which would require some careful measuring / cutting groove and some 3M double sided tape.

My question, beside fit, is also the UV durability of plastic used.

I'll either buy it or paint the old trim the proper way (SEM paint, careful clenup, prep, adhesion promoter etc..)

I can get those 6 OEM pieces right or below $300 I think, but that's just way to much for what you get.

I got those exact ones and they’re great. The original M5 emblems fit in just fine. The Turner ones have the holes for the emblems and come with new emblems.

I've ordered these https://www.ecstuning.com/b-ecs-parts/shadowline-door-moulding-6-piece-set/004500ecs01/ because when I tried to order TM ones (same part#) it stated no cutouts or emblems when you put them in cart.

So you're saying you ordered these https://www.turnermotorsport.com/p-338723-side-molding-set-e39-m5-style-fits-all-e39/?pdk=BA

Thank you for thew help in clearing this confusion.
