Mud Flaps for Aero Kit

I recently visited my dealership to inquire about the installation of mud flaps on my 06 X3 with Aero Kit. Both the parts department and service department agreed that BMW only manufactures mud flaps for the rear of my car and not front. I find this hard to believe.

Are the front OEM mud flaps universal (i.e., the will work on cars with and without the Aero Kit)?

Thanks

I have installed the mud flaps myself on my 06 X3 with Aero Kit. I had issues with poor design and fit. It was kind of a PITA. You have to remove the plastic trim with a heat gun and then once removed install the new mud flaps. I did not use the BMW provided plastic rivets but rather the plastic anchors provided for said rivets and metal screws. I posted comments on my installation a while ago.

I was told the same thing 2 days ago by the dealer. Only mud flaps for the rears for the 06.

I have installed both front and rear. The front mud flaps fit well. The rear ones were of poor design but fit. The most difficult part was removing the trim with the heat gun. Attached is a picture.

Sweet. How well do they work? Do you have the part number for the fronts?
