Default Replacement Door Sill Sticker?

An overagressive detail shop destroyed/partially removed my driver's door sill sticker - the one with your vin, date of manufacture, tire pressure, etc.

Can this be reordered from BMW?

Can anyone give me any info on having this recreated/reordered?

Thanks.

  • If you are wondering about whether or not to buy snow tires, please review the dozens of threads where people caused thousands of dollars of damage in a light snowfall at 10 mph.
  • If you are thinking about buying an M3 because they can now be found pre-owned fairly inexpensively, please review the threads explaining how expensive the maintenance is. Plan on spending $2,000 or more per year on routine maintenance.

Just closing the loop on this. I spoke with BMW. They are very protective of these stickers! I have to bring the car in at a time when the regional rep will be at the dealership. The rep has to inspect the vehicle himself and sign the order form. I'm told that he only shows up at BMW Mt Kisco every month or so.

I guess I'll just schedule my next service for when he will be there and take care of everything at once.

Oh - and the sticker itself only costs a few bucks.

Same situation here with my E36 M3.
Were you capable of fixing this, how did it go?

They need to be. I'm sure people will try to get replacements with newer production dates if it's easy to get.

I got a call a month ago that the regional rep would be in the shop that afternoon. I drove over with an appointment and the rep walked around my car, checked the VIN on the dash and the VIN under the hood and said I am all set.

The parts guy then got the clearance to order the part from Germany. He said he would call when it got in. I am still waiting. I left a message for him a week ago, but haven't heard anything.

Admittedly, this has not been my top priority.

Costwise, it should all come in under $20. Timewise, two dealer visits and well over a month.

Just as follow-up, this finally got accomplished on Friday. I got the VIN sticker with date of manufacture, the tire pressure sticker and a third small sticker about tire pressure over 100mph. Interestingly nothing was labeled as a "Replacement" or anything - so there is no obvious way to distinguish from new. All was through the dealership and they installed everything - about $30 in all.
