Note: Because we value your safety and the ability to withstand wear, pressure, or damage over time to your BMW's radiator, you will have to trim a small portion of the black plastic panel that sits above the radiator so that the top two Rad Guard mounting points can be fitted into position.
These Rad Guards come with their own easy to read fitting instructions.
The Guards DO NOT Vibrate or rub.
Expanded mesh is used to protect the radiator core along with a rigid frame that also acts as a brace. This frame will protect your radiator core from crushing on side impacts.
The Expanded Mesh on the Rad Guard sits off the radiator core by approximately 10-15mm so even if you have a direct hit from a stone, bird or any other road debris, the radiator core will not be touched or damaged in any way.
All Rad Guards come with a transferable 3-Year Warranty.

They fit perfectly around the radiator and oil cooler...firm no room to vibrate. Rad Guard explains in there instructions that there maybe insufficient room for the washers to mount and refit the clips. I found the best solution to fitting the rad guard is to remove the mount screws (one at a time) and coat threads with loctite. Refit the screws, but before tightening fit the clips, then tighten the screws only until the clips are just firm on the radguard. Leave till the loctite sets (overnight is good). The loctite will hold the screw at the right spot so the radiator and cover are held firm and the clips won't spring off.
The guards look great (black is my preference)
Good product that works, however, might be a little fidgety when fitting to the latest model. Need good tools to adjust the plastic, one done all good . Takes about an hour to fit including the adjustments to the plastic moulding.
Product came to the US quickly and undamaged. Instructions are super clear and installation was seamless. Little intimidated at first in cutting (only on newer model) but it was very easy. Installation took about 1 hour, but that was me taking my time and taking everything apart. If I need to do it again, I could probably do it in 20 minutes. Very satisfied with the product and not only will it protect the components, it looks great as well.
brilliant fit with a bit of adjustment to the plastic!
looks stunning in black hiding the alloy thank you!
