Just fitted RGM guard in Carbon. Temperature in UK now between 18C and 30C the recommended fitting temperature. The guard complements the chrome boot / trunk styling line well. No idea how to attach photos to thread but you can see them here https://www.speakev.com/threads/bmw-i3- ... st-2807618

Got my plain black Rearguard and it fits perfectly, there's no indication at all it wasn't factory fitted.

It looks like the RGM Rearguard cover for the i3 is now being sold on eBay.

Yay! Maybe they found a way to ship 'em in a tube or something. That's quite a bit more reasonable.

The thing is relatively rigid ABS plastic, so, if you put it into a tube, it would need to be fairly big diameter to account for its width and the fact that it is curved. My sister mailed me one years ago that was flat with a double thickness of cardboard around it. Not sure how much it could bend before breaking, but think that it's a fair amount. Shipping international is a combination of weight and volume, a tube would be significantly more volume, and, if it was strong enough to not bend, up the overall weight quite a bit. My shipping experience is a quantity of one, so may or may not reflect anyone else's results!

This used to be a BMW part in the UK, and it was actually cheaper through BMW than it was from the manufacturer. No longer see it on the BMW-UK accessories list, but it might still be there. The factory offers it in four colors...BMW only sold it in black, which is what I wanted, anyways.

When I ordered one last year directly from the manufacturer, the product was shipped from the U.K in a long, narrow cardbox shipping box and was not folded.

I just ordered mine on eBay UK. Total cost including shipping and tax (yes, unfortunately) was £99.59.

I think this is a better deal in terms of shipping. But lets see if it arrives. Estimated mid July.

This is one of the less expensive options I've found: https://www.ebay.com/itm/303333848696
