Window/Door seals - URO???

Hey guys, I'm prepping for the winter when my '73 goes under the knife to deal with some rust issues and get a fresh paint job. I'm starting to look at window, door, trunk, hood etc seals. Has anyone used the brand URO for these?  Love to hear the good and bad if any. I realize original BMW parts would be best but they are costly and some bits and bobs are hard to find. 

 

Thanks for any help.

URO? Never heard of them... ?

 

 

Lots of threads on them. Getting better, but not there yet!

 

Regards,

 

Steve

Absolute rubbish...just a waste of time & money. None of it fits correctly so in the end you'd wind up purchasing & replacing it with BMW's product anyway.

 

Do it once and do it right.

 

I'm sure Blunttech and Maximillian Importing will provide you w/the best prices they can offer; they're top-notch folks w/whom we all do plenty of business with and who actively participate in the community as 02 enthusiasts/owners as well!

My M2 had nothing.  JimK had some URO door seals that he tried to use and ripped out.  They're semi glued into place in my car.  Way better than nothing, but not nearly as good as the OE ones I put in the tii.

LImeySteve had good results with Ford Focus door seals. Seemed to work well for him.

 

 

Also I believe Esty used some AutoZone etc. generic seals that she is happy with. 

 

I am still waiting for a report of someones experience with the "New and Improved" URO seals. Aren't they supposed to be out by now?

Yeah i have bought URO door seals and trunk seals and they worked okay but over time you get annoyed with things just not fitting quite right and you end up buying BMW anyway.

If you decide to go with Genuine BMW seals, I'm offering them all at very competitive prices, as follows:

 

ALL PARTS ARE GENUINE BMW and NEW:

 

door gaskets, each $265.00

front or rear windshield seal $125.00 each

vertical "B pillar" 1/4 window seals, each $28.00

rear 1/4 window main seals, each $64.00

 

Loads of other seals available, but this will give you some idea of expected cost to use the "good stuff". 

 

E mail or call if I can help!

Just waited 3 weeks for my OEM driver side seal to arrive from Germany.   I was a bit "surprised" to see it was Made in China

We're still making adjustments to the final design, production pieces are still several months out unfortunately.  Sorry for the delay, it's better to get it right than rush to production.

A lot of OEM parts are coming from China in today's global market, India will be next.

Second that, I ran them for almost 16 months and chucked them, except for the rear glass, that only lasted 1 day and then the glass started to pop out...…… I did get the doors to close with force, the trunk seemed to leak exhaust back though so I don't think it sealed great, but at the time budget dictated I try them
