Z4 Just got the chrome tail pipe covers mounted

Thanks to the great post by Starscream88 last week, I finally got the chrome tail pipe covers off the shelf and mounted. Thanks to the Dremel, vice grip and rubber mallet, they are finally on. I'll post a picture of the mod later when the rain storm quits. They really brighten up the rear end, they are subtle, but make a nice difference.

Here's a picture of the tips. The ones I bought were designed for a 2.5i and required some modification. Check out www.getbmwparts.com or email jason there and see if he can give you the correct part number.

The ones they sent were not round, they were more oblong. I persuaded them some with a rubber mallet and then quit when I liked the form.

Obviously the wrong ones. I tried to persuade the cover on with the rubber mallet and Jason said that he would take back the unopened one but because I had attempted to mount the other one, I would need to keep that one. I am not complaining one bit, because I did it, not them. After that I was determined to "make them fit" and so the procedure above was completed. I looked at the web site but I could not find the part number I ordered listed. I think the ones that Jamie has available would probably work better than the ones I used. Hopefully others won't pay close attention to them, there's no sneaking anything past Ron. ;-)
