The rain has chased me indoors :(, so I am taking a break from my fuel pump dilemma and looking for a good source for items like the external weather seal for the door windows (along the bottom of the window). Mine are hard as rocks, broken and certainly killing my doors from the inside out with rust. Also looking for a vendor for the interior rubber trim pieces around the doors, a new headliner, new hazard light button and fuse panel cover. Anyone got the 411?

IF anyone else is interested, I found a couple of online vendors:

https://www.autohausaz.com/

http://www.bavauto.com/index

http://www.bimmerpartswholesale.com/

Prices sure vary, as well as quality I imagine. I ordered up a new hazard light switch. That little thing is quite the gremlim when it goes bad! Wow....

there are also some shops on eBay, I ordered up a dash cover to hold me over until I can replace the original.

So, am I to assume that there just aren't too many aftermarket vendors for trim, plastic, accessory items for these little cars? I admit that I am used to doing restorations on cars that most people have forgotten about, and thus only having one or two vendors, but I having trouble finding anything. Am I stuck with my local BMW dealer for replacement dash panels and headliners?
