MZ3 new to forum and just wondering.....

I have a '99 M Roadster, It seems that all of the rubber is weathered(cracked). Anntena grommet, door handle surrounds, etc. The car came out of Knoxville, TN. As far as I can tell, that is where it has always called home. Is there any one place to buy all of this "rubber" in one place, other than BMW? Thanks for any help.
Crappy : )

There are several BMW dealers which sell for less than retail, or you could approach your local dealer and ask if they will match the out of state dealers prices(typically 20% off retail). The most commonly used online sites are North Haven and Tischer.

Get used to replacing these fairly often.

I'm on my 3rd antenna grommet and 2nd set of foor handle surround gaskets. I just get them from the dealer who gives a nice club discount. BTW I'm on the 3rd set of door handle surround gaskets on SWMBF&O's M3, and it uses 4!

I've been pricing parts for a minor accident repair (grilles, some bumper parts, etc) and thought I would replace all these little things that need doing while I was at it (window slides, screw caps, trim pieces, antenna grommet, etc).

Getting ready to place an order at because they had all the parts I needed (several that Tischer and North Haven didn't list), they were around 15% LESS than Tischer and North Haven, and shipping was free for orders over $100.

The jury is still out on actual fulfillment as I am hoping nothing gets back-ordered, but they were hands-down the most complete inventory and best pricing I could find. I had a list of 20 part numbers from RealOEM, typed them in on TheBMWPartStore's part number search and got hits on EVERY part (including the little clips that hold the rear bumper cover to the rear fender and the twist-lock screws that hold the lower dash trim panels in the footwells) for less than anyone else was selling them.
