One style fits all now, and the aluminum is not as shiny as back in the day.

Make a friend with the parts manager at your local BMW dealer to get a discount.

01 GRILLE LEFT CHROM 1 09/1967 08/1973 51131808473 $480.31

only in conjunction with

-- COVERING SCHWARZ SET 1 09/1967 08/1973 51131817840 $97.95

03 GRILLE RIGHT CHROM 1 09/1967 08/1973 51131808474 $480.31

well.

That's a rip- off for stamped aluminum.

Seriously.

For that kind of money, I'd want a nice chromed casting. Set.

Or a set of race tires.

AND rims!

Or maybe a set of rods. Or a reworked head.

Guess I'm too cheap for 2002's any more....

Wow, Jim, those are too pretty to use as bug catchers. I would be tempted to use them only for special occasions, you know, like your Sunday-go-to-meeting clothes

Nice pick up.

Yes, the new grills are pricey, but at least you can still buy them. I got a great deal during BLUNT's big sale last year.

....

We need another big sale 2013 from Blunt...

C.D. you don't believe the p/n's that I furnished in my post? Your quote below-

Good luck on a sale at BMW, if anything...prices will continue to climb.

I've seen the new grilles in the flesh, they still are not as nice/shiny as the originals were back in "the day", they only have the early design (not the late style '73) at 10X the original price.
