Go to Bmw parts department and they can pull up what part #s you need. They are helpful in parts.

Depends how "OE" you want to go. Personally for about that same amount of money and MUCH better durability, I would install a Motion Motorsport under panel. It's all one piece and strengthens the bumper as well as the wheel well liners.

The plastic OE pieces fall off much easier.

For people who are cheap the OE underpanel is still better than none imo and it's actually quite a bit more cheap than the MM panel.

Just bought basically everything to bring my front end to how it was before four other dumb asses owned it, on ECS, and it definitely gets pricey so the cheaper OEM panel is understandable to me. Easier to just throw in the OEM panel when doing shopping on the same site rather than switching over to MM and paying shipping, and more money for their panel.
If you wanted just the panel I'd suggest MM.
But it'll be fun to see how quickly my OEM panel falls apart so I can appreciate the MM under panel.

If you end up replacing all the parts mentioned in the original post, then the MM panel is actually cheaper even after shipping and including the optional radiator baffle.

Was it 3 or 5 pieces you ended up buying?

MM underpanel looks like it has different aerodynamics compared to the stock ones. I would personally use OEM parts on these areas.. i.e. the under guard from engine to transmission provides better cooling for tranny than without it.

All these garbage underpanels, including the big one covering half the car are still fitted tightly on my car.

Guess ones garbage, is another man's treasure.

Which underguard are you talking about? If anything, the MM underpanel reduces air turbulence in this area and I like the radiator baffle a lot better than the stock one.

Yeah, I wouldn't go somfar as to call it garbage. I think it also depends on the kind of roads and conditions you're driving in. For example, I autocross my car. There's no way the stock under panels would survive being hit by cones the way this under panel does.
