    Just an FYI on Euro rear plate fillers.

    Is it not known that dealers can still get these? Just look up the part number on RealOem and head to the dealer. Mine was less than the RealOem suggested $40 price tag...just saying...

        You took a BMW part number, went to the BMW dealer, and they sold you the BMW part?

        The late model Euro filler is NLA though.

          FYI early cars can use the US plate filler. Exact same thing but with two additional holes where you actually need them!

                So where exactly can you get these listed items for these listed prices? Definitely not getbmwparts.com, and I'd guess that all forums have similar prices on stuff.

                          your so full of crap it's funny.

                          shipping alone is about 45 euros for a box large enough for lights to get too the U.S.
                          as well as the "free" grills will also cost that in shipping

                          M tech parts are all to large to send without using a shipping company.

                          you should really wake up and take a look at german e bay-- hell, I have been buying a lot of stuff from the u.s. lately



                          actually, you are just plain stupid to make a post like that.

                              And you're so far up your ass it's damn near hilarious. You sell your euro spec parts with a premium to people on this side of the ocean, so I imagine you don't like post such as mine.

                              As a general rule of thumb if you don't want to get screwed over, never buy parts from ebay.de or ebay.co.uk. They are first places people look for euro spec parts or "rare items". They know it and we know it. As a result people on this side of the ocean think they are getting a better deal, which they are to an extent, but often it's crap no one on their forums wanted or they want too much from the local guys. The folks here will buy it because it's better than nothing and still cheaper. Rusted adjusters? Broken tabs? Cracked lenses? Not a problem. Now take my money.


                              For the M-tech items, shipping them across the ocean is still cost effective if you want a 4 door or 2 door kit. Those go for a small fortune over here in sometimes in a sorry state. Cabrio kits seem to be the only ones that come up for sale.


                              Shipping is naturally expensive having to come from over there. But no one says you have to send it via DHL (the shipping branch, not DE's postal service branch). A Royal mail package (UK) that fits grills and smilies that weighs 6 kg cost me $45 to ship last time. It may not be the fastest method, but if time is a concern, another $25 will get it to your house in under a week via a courier. You may even get lucky and the seller will throw in a clock that you can sell over here for $40. That will cover a good chunk of your shipping cost.


                              tl;dr It is still cheaper, even with shipping, to get it from the source than someone on this side of the ocean. Go make an account at e30zone.net and take a look for yourself. Almost all of those sellers have no problem selling to overseas.
