any BME dealer in the USA can order any part you need and

OEM quality, correct fit, and better price than 'vendors'. Buy a CD copy of the BMW 1502 - 2002 Parts Catalog from the dealer also so you can look up all your own numbers and make a shopping list - and if your a BMWCCA club member- many parts dept's offer a parts discount.

While that is true, what's up with the new minimum order amounts on some parts. If one’s particular dealer has low demand for 2002 parts then they usually will make you commit to buying them all. 10 to a pack for the rear-subframe to body pins is just nuts. Makes me visit the dealer less and less.

some dealers are honest, and have no problem ordering (1)special bolt. Your the customer - move on !

There is no reason to scrounge around for unsafe used hardware when all - and I do mean "ALL" hardware is AVAILABLE FOR PENNIES.

fix it right - fix it once.

It may be where I live, Silicon Valley. Last time I went to the dealer I was looking for a guibo. I go the the parts desk, have the guy look it up and he says 70 dollars. WTF 70 dollars AND THEN he went so far as to say he didnt know if he could still get it. Alright thanks dealer sucks. So I called Ireland and got my guibo for 40 bucks and my money went to a better place . I have vowed never to go to the stealer again

BMWNA parts DO have "pack quantities" but any dealer that cares knows it's not problem to order a single piece of any part.

Best thing is to make your own list of part numbers (don't ask the parts guy to look up every wave washer used on your particular engine.) If you don't have access to the BMWNA parts price lists, you can get an idea from checking some of the online resources (RealOEM, etc..)

seats and they wanted to sell me these wires with plugs on them then i

would have to find the plastic case on my own for 5 dollars a piece!! for 6

inches of wire and a little metal piece, i need 16 and decided to say oh

well thats outrageous i'll cut and sauder before i do that. but this parts

guy actuall looked up parts numbers for me, an hour earlier the parts guy

at a different dealship merely said "we dont have anything like that, thank

you then" walked away

all the shiny new BMWs...

They never have what I need, they order it, then they don't call me when it gets there, then they send it back to the warehouse because I didn't pick it up, then I buy it from Autohaus Arizona and everybody is happy, except by then it has been a few months and I don't remember what the stupid part was for in the first place.

Well be glad you have that kind of dealer. I have gone with all the part

numbers in the correct format and quantity that I want printed out

from an excel sheet. No luck, quantity pack only on orders. Pisses me

off.

Next closest dealer is 75miles away, before I do the 150 miles round

trip I would rather order from someone else. There is something to be

said for local compitition keeping people interested in serving the

customer.

located (shipping is quicker/cheaper if you're close) but any of the following folks are good sources:

2002 Haus, San Luis Obispo, CA / www.2002haus.com

La Jolla Independent, LaJolla CA / www.bimmerdoc.com

Bavarian Autosport, Portsmouth NH / www.bavauto.com

Double 02 Salvage, Haward CA / www.double02salvage.com

There are many, many other vendors that carry '02 parts - run a Google search under "BMW parts" and you'll find lots of sources.........

Who says you have to use the local guy, esp. if he's no good?

The parts won't be in stock anyways, so there's no real advantage to being local.

Find a Friendly dealer somewhere else (hint, check the Roundel ads.)

I use an out-of-state source that is located between me and a BMW NA parts distribution center.

I call them, tell them to expect a Fax of the parts order. Usually I know what the list prices are & the discount structure, so they don't even have to bother going over each line item with me, they just tell me the total (of course they know to make me aware if something has raised price substantially.)

Shipping is very quick due to their being located halfway between me & the warehouse.
