Rear Bumper Sill Reccomendations

Hey folks, has anyone seen a rear bumper sill protector for the i3?

My daughter has to take her hockey gear in and out of the back and I already have 2 small paint chips.

Thanks!

I would like one as well. I have a few small chips on mine as well - the paint seems a little brittle on the rear sill.

Drop in to a vinyl wrap joint and get the sill clear wrapped.

I made one for myself...a piece of felt and a piece of medium weight canvas. I ended up buying a piece of felt big enough to fold it with four layers, then sewed the canvas on top along with a couple of tabs to tie to the cargo loops. Cost me about $10 in materials and maybe 1/2-hour labor...I just couldn't see spending that much money for BMW's. I have an ICE recumbent trike that I regularly (well, when we aren't snowed in!) carry in the back to the local bike trail. The roads around here are not bike friendly, so I use the i3 as a bike carrier to get to where it is safe. I end up with about 2-3K miles a year on the thing...helps to keep my weight down.

I've written to RGM to see if they will be making one for the i3, haven't heard back yet.

I have an RGM rearguard on my E91 and its a nice quality part.

Do you have a pic of it on your car?

Here you go. The dirt is non-standard. BTW, the WeatherTech mats are awesome

Re: Rear Bumper Sill Reccomendations

The WeatherTech Boot Liner looks good. Do you also have their FloorLiner and if so, in the front of the car, is it a single moulding across the full width? Are you able to buy a full set ? It is not clear on their UK website. Any additional photos would be appreciated.
