I see that I'm not the only one trying to sort out the inconsistent colours, out-dated/erroneous installation guide and crappy customer service from Umnitza.

Re: Help to identify a part number

It looks similar, but like you said, it's not listed for our cars. I think the part I posted about is the one, because it's shown on the same page as the sound insulation, which is what I'm looking...

Re: Help to identify a part number

The parts guy at the dealership thinks the part number is 07147282845 Expanding rivet (http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/partsearch?id=BL93-USA-12-2001-E46-BMW-M3&diagId=51_3275&q=07147282845)....

Re: Help to identify a part number

Thanks for the reply. This is not a push-in type expanding rivet. It's screw-in. It may not even be the original fastener. I realize anything would work, but I'm trying to determine the OE part.

Help to identify a part number

Re: What was the last movie you watched and would you recommend it?

Great comments.

I re-watched Deadpool to get ready for Deadpool 2. Funny as hell, but I forgot how cringeworthy it was. Really enjoyed the Ikea scene.

Watched Solo. I found it better than...

Re: What was the last movie you watched and would you recommend it?

If you like sci-fi, you must watch the original blade runner. Arguably one of the best sci-fi movies of all time. Be aware that there are seven versions. My favourite is called the final cut. It's...

Re: Under-drive Pulleys, would you do them again?

In case it wasn't clear, I wasn't referring to the butt-dyno sensation, but heaviness of the steering or overheating or lack of charge from the alternator. I drove stock M3s and mine and the steering...
