    Just go into BMW and describe the bits. They are the ones trained to find parts on their own system.
    The prices will be better direct through the dealer, I have often seen evo lips and M3 mesh sell for more on ebay than the dealer price.

    A lot of people fall for the same thing, they think it must be cheap, as it's on ebay, and dealers will always cost a fortune, but when you think about it, and know that genuine ones will always come from the dealer, it makes sense!

    Letting the dealer sort out the part numbers covers you for errors too, plenty of people have slipped up and ordered the wrong item and have been stuck with it, as they asked for a number and they got it.

    It's very easy done even more so with ebay but i'm 1 off those people that if i'm going to buy something i will google search and make sure i'm getting the right price.That's my plan off action now i will pop up to the new bmw showroom near me and just let them sort it out
