I guess you either cannot see or have ignored my signature? I have an Individual 335xi and I am in the US.

Of course I can order replacement parts for any damaged trim on my car. I didn't say the parts can't be ordered at all. You simply need to provide the VIN of the car with the order. If the Vehicle Inquiry Report for the VIN does not identify it as having that Individual equipment, the order is supposed to be rejected. The exact part number alone is not enough; certain Individual parts are ordered by part # + VIN.

Note the "supposed to" above. There is always the possibility of tracking down someone selling take-off parts or someone who manages to circumvent the rules. However if everyone is doing their job, AFAIK you'll be stonewalled.
