Give this a try if you are interested in learning a little bit more about your car:cool

Don't tell your friends;) This will make you look like a BMW GOD to them:rofl

First log into www.realoem.com



Enter the last 7 digits of your chassis number here




Once you have pressed enter or the search button ALL of your vehicle details will be listed





Click on Browse Parts






This is where it starts to get interesting:hihi

Here are some of the options that you can then select on












Click on the image for an enlarged version and part numbers










You will notice that ALL prices are displayed in Dollars, No problem...

Highlight and copy the part number you want to know the price of and paste it in here

http://www.cooper-bmw-parts.co.uk/







Bookmark both web addresses and have a little play with it and let me know your views:thumbsup

When I go to the dealer I often find the parts are in fact cheaper than advertised on Cooper BMW but it gives you an idea of what you are going to be paying:thumbsup

The both of these sites are superb.

Only problem for me is having two chassis numbers i can find the spec when it left BMW as an SE but not the ALPINA spec.

Still Great Tho:thumbsup

Thanks RYM. Being new to BMW I'm sure this is going get used and abused in a big way, if not just for part numbers but finding out what individual parts are called instead of thingamejig and waddayacallit!
Thanks again, Mat.

I'd forgotten about the Cooper one, so thanks for reminding me!:)
I used to use realoem but find bmwfans to have a much nicer and more 'finished' interface.
