Rear vent window seal part number?

Does anyone know the part number and possibly where I can get a replacement window seal for the rear vent window on a two door? I have a 330Ci and the lower seal below the window has started to deteriorate from sun damage. Thanks

Maybe try the parts system, www.realoem.com. Enter the last seven digits of your VIN, then follow the illustrated parts breakdown diagrams...

The part in the diagram above looks like the one you need. I did a search and found the following places that sell the part:

Genuine BMW Part: RAILING GASKET

51 36 8 194 742 (Right Side)

Pelican $28
Bavarian Abutosport $26.95
Bloomfield BMW $21.35
Tischer $21.62

Please let us all know what is involved in changing this strip.

It doesn't look like that piece will go all the way around the back corner and up a little, though I've been told it does by BMW of Chattanooga. My plan of action is to buy that piece and when it arrives, take a look at it and go from there. If it doesn't cover all of it, then I guess this might cover the rest? I sure hope not! Check out #15. http://bmwfans.info/parts/catalog/E4...r_trim_grille/
