Just got a call from the glass shop (see yesterday's post about the aftermarket windshield gasket not fitting.) The local dealer geniuses delivered a windshield gasket for a 318, despite the glass guy's telling them that it was for a 1973 BMW 2002, VIN 2587090.

When he returned the part they insisted that the VIN he supplied was a 318 VIN! Did you ever see a 318 with a seven digit VIN? Duh. So he called Bimmer Parts on my suggestion. Hopefully overnight delivery and I can have Ludwig back Sat am. Otherwise I'll be going thru withdrawal symptoms as I'm too lazy to get Wolfgang out of storage prematurely. My rant for the day...

thought it was the last seven digits of the VIN.

My E30 M3 has a VIN of 2196019. Of course it is preceeded by a WBSAK030XJsomethingorother, but the last seven places ARE numeric.

...that's probably $700 due to the embedded Realtime Leak Sealing System, with five electric motors and more processing power than the shuttle.

The guy who put in my windshiled said it was just

an crummy aftermarket gasket, and he had to

really fight to make it fit. He is no stranger to a 2002

either.

Do you think the Bimmer Parts gaskets are simply

inferior products?
