someone hit my 2002 325xi almost 2 weeks ago. the hood (where the grilles are) was hit while the car was parked. the hood itself slightly bucked but it's still drivable.
anyway, the body shop had the car for a few days awaiting state farm to come out and estimate the repair. today, i get a phone call from the shop and they tell me i may as well pick up my car (since it's still very drivable) because the 2002 hoods are on a national backorder. it could take up to 3 weeks to get the hood in!
now i understand that the hoods changed for the 2002 yr but come on bmw parts! they should have the hoods available.
anyone else experience similiar part shortage problems?
