Yes, both in black!.

Concerned that if I have warrantly calaim that my dealer or BMW could claim that the guards were the issue given that they have been instructed not to fit them by BMW!

If that's why you're selling them, don't. You won't have an issue with the bike overheating, especially in the uk!

Agree with Rich here I have had them on mine for about 7K and the bike doesn't overheat and for comparison there was no difference in the temps with the rad guard off.  I am in London and do get caught in the traffic so would see a difference if they were an issue.

And had my dealer put them on at the first service for me and he said zero about them nulifying the warranty.  He agreed that the radiator/cooler needed covering due to the short front fender and tire throwing debris.
Many people ride.....but for a select group of people it's more than a ride....it's one of life's great passions.

There is a much higher chance of the front wheel throwing a stone into the radiator than the bike overheating as a result of fitting guards.
