UPDATE!!!: Someone stole the dumbest thing off my car, Need Part Number

Just wanted to post an update. Turns out the left will fit the right and vice versa (duh?). Here are some pics (keep in mind they are being held in place with chewing gum, just for the sake of the pics lol).

These pics show that the right piece (which I took off) will fit the left side (which was misplaced/stolen).

Also, it's raining here hence the dirt. :P







Original Post

Hey guys,

I went to a Chinese buffet last night, and I come back to my car, drove it home, parked it, and realized someone stole the weirdest thing off my car!

I don't know what it's called, so let me just call it "tailight trim".

They only stole one side of it, I guess theirs was missing since it is only held on by some adhesive. I took off my other one because it looked ridiculous with just one. Can anyone point me to the part number, name, cost, and where I can purchase this part? Can I order it pre-painted? Thanks

Here are some pics.

It's called the "French Fry", and I do not think there is a part number in RealOEM.

edit: I may be wrong. check out this link. It might be item seven (7) and 11.

left = 51717078265
right = 51717072266

it would not be prepainted. this is likely a dealer-only item.

BMW USA MSRP = $40.21/ea. ( + paint)

Holy Moly! Quickest replies ever! Thanks so much guys!

I was thinking of doing the facelifted tailights/bumper this summer, but I'm growing fond of the pre-facelift tails

Does anybody know where I can buy this part (left - 51717078265) within Canada? BMW USA has it but the shipping price is ridiculous. eBay has it, but the seller only ships within USA.

It may have just fallen off. You might want to consider "super-glueing" it back on for the next one

Alright, I gave BMW Toronto a call, turns out they do not have this part in inventory across Canada. I guess I will have to purchase it from the states, or live without them.

Or maybe a zPoster has a spare one lying around? *fingers crossed*

Towne BMW (716-505-2100) looks to be your closest US dealer. can you call them and pick it up yourself? or maybe work out a cheaper shipping option from them?

they would likely have to order it for you anyway. i can't see this being a part that is popular enough to warrant stocking.

Yeah, I doubt they would have it in stock. BMW Toronto told me that it might be discontinued and I may have to order straight from Germany.

Or I can convince this guy to ship it to Canada:

Edit: nvm, it's an old listing. none for sale.

Tischer has them for $32 and they call it a Finisher. If they have it in stock and can overnight it, I am headed to buffalo Saturday to pick up some parts. You could also try ECS Tuning or one of the Buffalo dealers.

I am in Waterloo BTW

You can get matching paint in a spray can from these guys, and paint it yourself. Probably want to clear coat and buff it, too.
