NK Armrest Mount

The later style upper armrest mounts are NLA but a e9 coupe mount will work. It is about 1/2" wider than original but it is referenced in RealOEM as the official replacement. I think an e12 mount will also work as it is the correct size and width but the chrome cap is smaller and will look a little bit off.

Chris,

Some of the E-9, E-3, and E-12 upper armrest chrome caps will work for the '69 2000, I'm not sure which years for those though. A while ago when I had my '69 2000 I ordered a pair of those caps from Wallothnesch, the newer

ones they sent me were off by just a bit, used a dremel to more/less get the

correct fit.

The e9 chrome cap is too big, e12 too small. I was afraid dremelling would leave a ragged edge so I replaced the support as well.

I first called Carl, at La Jolla Independent and asked him if he had any NK

front armrest caps. He thought originally he had a box of assorted NK trim pieces but after calling him back a few days later he said no-go. So I had ordered some brake pads/rotors/ rubber lines for my 1969 2000 as Wallothnesch was advertising a brake parts sale and then asked them to toss

in a pair of the armrest caps; the 'repro' ones sent were very close, fit wise

but still off a bit. It's interesting, the part# for those caps coincides with those for certain E-3, E-9 and E-12

BMW superseded the old original parts with the e9 part even though it is larger but at least it is available. The e12 chrome cover is too small to fit NK or e9 though unless you use the e12 support as well.
