    Hi, the site came out tops on Google (when looking for central locking problems!).
    I have a 2001 325 M Sport, and some git has forced what looks like a screwdriver into the surround (part of the door handle, but not the actual handle itself), that the lock face fits into on the drivers door.
    I haven't been able to find out what the eaxct name for the part is, it's the painted plastic that surrounds the metal lock insert itself, and also the (what looks like black rubber / plastic) grommet between that and the door body.
    I spoke to a breakers and he thought I would need to buy the whole door lock mechanism (!), meaning new key etc.
    I know a good spray guy that can paint a new one for a round of drinks, just need to source the part!
    Thanks in advance!

    Hi, thanks for that, you've beaten Google's efforts! Sorry about the delay, I mistakenly thought I would get an email alert when a response was posted.
    I see that the prices are in dollars, so they are U.S. based? Have you / anyone else safely purchased off them do you know?
    Cheers.

    Hi (again!). I've been on the site again, but how on Earth do you place an order on it?
    I can't see anything like a contact or order point?

    Hi, thanks for that. I have emailed a description etc. I have found an exact painted too) match on ebay, but they advised it only fits up to 2000 (mines 2001).
    If anyone reading this needs parts, they are called http://shop.ebay.co.uk/munich_parts/m.html

    Hi again, part ordered from bmwminiparts.com, on Tuesday, came Thursday, a whopping £40 cheaper than anywhere else!
    Thanks for the heads up again.
