    Yup - and easier to install and half the price of R+G ones .......

    Got a good price on some from Dan at Sycamore BMW in Peterborough.  Not my local dealer at all but the customer service was outstanding - will be using them again.

    I used the Evotech rad guards which ended up being something of a pain to install.  I didn't even check if BMW had some  :138:  had to remove a bunch of panels and ended up stripped one of the screws holding the oil cooler.  Next time I'll just get the BMW one.!
    I plan to live forever.  So far, so good!
