BMW Pannier colours
on: March 13, 2018, 07:11:00 PM
Good evening, am I right in thinking that the bmw panniers for the s1000xr only come in red and grey this year ? I am planning on buying one with the new colours and they will not match this colour scheme :-(

Think that's right.

Easiest solution would be vinyl wrap of the lids - in whatever colour you want.

What, like this?

I've seen the panniers painted in the blue and to my eyesight, it's great.  :152: I'm waiting for a quote from my dealer to get the two panniers and topbox done. Carbon dipping was my other option... :062:

I'll post the cost when I get the quote.

Or just go with black more practical panniers :-) I admit the smaller top box would look better :-)

It might look better but you wouldn't get as much beer in them!  I'd say it was a good choice... :028:

£100 per case inc VAT - I'm off there now to drop them off. They'll be ready to put back on after my first service next week. :152:
