Update 4/19: in the search for a new carbon manufacturer as the previous company would not commit to delivering on proper communications. Will maintain the round list unless anyone explicitly asks to be removed.

Hey wagon gang,

With E46 touring mudguards being well out of production at this stage, there are few options other than looking to scrap yards (good luck) or finding a used set.

Given the current demand for more Touring parts, I've reached out to multiple manufacturers to commission a set. While my original intent was to find a plastic manufacturer, I've since made a connection with [OMITTED] who manufactures—you guessed it—carbon mud guards and flaps. While much of their work is layered and cut, they have molding capabilities as well to provide an OE replica of the E46 Touring guards.

We have worked to a group buy price of $200 for the set of 4 guards molded to OE Spec in either matte or gloss carbon, shipped ConUS.
The estimated production time for the first set of 10 is 4 weeks from the close of the Group Buy

Round 1
1. ArtifactsInMotion (Matte)
2. ///Mark_D (Matte)
3. vtwagon (matte)
4. Jakl (matte)
5. JoeTan (matte)
6. Archbid (matte)
7. Tbouchard991 (matte)
8. Crossworth1 (matte)
9. Dadw6n (matte)
10. Not_Special (gloss)

Round 2
11. thebfg (matte)
12. thetangstr (matte)
13. stiegmanjr (matte)

Note: I am not receiving any compensation from [OMITTED], merely facilitating the thread because I initiated the discussion, and I really want some damn mudguards :)

I’m definitely in for a matte set. Mad props for making this a reality.

I would think the silence is due to uncertainty. The idea is that these will be replicas of the factory mud guards, so if the factory mud guards fit an MTech II rear bumper, these should as well. If and should being the key words there.

Thanks for the update… too bad they didn’t work out.

Maybe this is for the best though. Maybe we’ll find a manufacturer who can make them out of a more traditional material, mimicking the oem flap / guard a little better.

Anyone have any luck finding any alternative options yet?
There’s another discussion for touring mudguards now, with potential replicas being designed. A few members have purchased these eBay units linked in this thread below while they wait. These are not replicas but by all accounts fit the car quite well.
