Chrome Exhaust tips for 325CI? (2003)

I searched online but only found them for a 328/330 at Circle/Pacific

Has anyone found them or are they the same as the 330?

Thanks in advance

Why is this in the flame forum?

AFAIK, there are no OEM chrome exhaust tips for the 323/325 as that wasn't an option. Try an aftermarket shop.

I'm gonna start carrying the files I've made that has all this info in it...

But there are add-on tips for 323/325s that don't have the exhaust flap. Doesn't make sense for there to be one for a 330 since they all come with them.

There are caps in the BMW assessory catalog. I have them on my 323.

I also have them on my '02 325Ci. I just went to the parts department of the local dealership (Irvine BMW) and asked... I think they overcharged me though -- something like $30 a tip. (I believe you can get 'em for $20)

Yeah, I discovered that for the most part, Irvine's prices are worse than Crevier's (which is pretty bad). When they started opening their parts counter on Saturdays I thought they were trying to compete with Crevier. I guess not.
I got a PAIR of tips for <$30 from Circle, IIRC.

I was meaning chrome exhaust caps. I bought the same ones you did with the screw and nut about half way back to keep it on the tailpipe.

If I remember correctly, I paid around 20GBP for them, so about $30.
