Frivolous, but when Auckland City BMW are selling something for an almost normal price, without the BMW NZ 400% markup, you almost have to do it. I wonder if they parallel imported them?

They're a bit Rolls Royce, I quite like them.

5900 posts! 😮 99% BS, 1% plain wrong. 😉

What are these worth, if you don’t mind me asking?

NP. I paid $142 and I picked them up.

I replaced the "fuel filler pot" today to fix the busted hinge (common problem). It wasn't too hard following a DIY but there are some stages that require a lot of force. All good now although it does close with a ferocious snap!

A little bit more faux Alcantara... quite good I think and now matches the rest.

Lifted the car today to check out the diff with the endoscope that @aja540i lent me... and fail. The largest internal hex bit I have is 12mm, need 14mm. All good, I'm not too concerned although it does mean that when I eventually need a diff service the rear cover will probably need to come off (I need to know the type of LSD before I replace any lube).

So, thanks again to @aja540i lending me a 14mm hex I got in there and had a look today... nothing. Basically I could see SFA and what I could see didn't tell me much. What I did see was that the blue (don't know if that means anything) diff fluid was bright and really clean (it looked brand new).

Looks like it'll be diff cover off to tell the full story. No rush on my part.

How easy is it to get this piece off? Mines quite scuffed so need to get a replacement piece for it. 

Or Alcantara wrap it to match the mirror...

You have a Alcantara wrapped mirror? 🤨

Anyway, the answer is "easy" it's held in by 4-6 "V" clips (for lack of a better description) and just pops out with a bit of leverage. I used a plastic trim tool but I suspect a credit card and fingernails could do. It is in there tight but comes out fine, the connecting cable is really long so no drama with that.
