Mud Guards for F12/13

Anyone come across any genuine BMW molded mud guards for the F12/13? The mud splash is really unsightly and especially apparent on a dark exterior car.

I haven't seen any, but I don't think I could put those on my car. I do get the occasional unsightly splash, but I'd rather wash my car than look at mud flaps. I guess I automatically associate them with jacked up, redneck pickups after growing up in the South, but I'm sure the BMW version would be more tasteful and less garish than what I'm imagining.

I had molded front and rear BMW mud guards (they don't "flap") installed on my previous E92 and they fit the contour of the body quite well (picture attached). If they make them for the F13, I believe they may work as well. What do you think?

Those do disappear more than I expected. Maybe they're still working on getting them produced. The 6er is the red-headed step child when it comes to accessories and aftermarket extras directly from BMW.

Tell me about it. The 5'er and 3'er seem to be getting all the attention when it comes to accessories. Even the 1'er is getting more love. Sheesh.

Here is a clearer shot from the rear. They do have them for the E63. Hope they make something similar for the F13 in due course.
