    Front Bumper Cover

    For those of you with an unrepairable bumper cover, I was able to purchase a new, primed cover (BMW 51118242268) from original-autoparts.com for $1670.55, all-in with shipping to Texas. Place looks legit with two warehouses in Germany. Should arrive in a couple of weeks. I will post again, red-faced if it was a scam.

    Looks like my plan has crashed. Company said they cancelled my order as they could no longer find a shipper for the part to the US.

    I would understand slow shipping, but no shipping?

    heavily modified for performance. Although, not to the level of GM's car

    I agree, and asked if they had another shipping option, and if not, to please take the US Shipping option off their website. I doubt I will hear back. Schade, they would have been a good source.I have had this problem before with ECS Tuning, and even BMW Classic, listing a part on their website and it not being available. BMW Classic surprised me. It was a wiring harness for my '83 320i. I purchased it on their website, and they replied they did not have in stock and did no know when they would get it. I asked for the oem manufacturer they last sourced it from or the specifications to have one custom made and they declined, each time just telling me they only sell things they have in stock on their website. After repeated requests they at least removed it from their website. I had mine repaired, and later sourced a used one on eBay. original-autoparts.com did promptly refund my credit card, but I will need to watch it still for any unusual charges.
