    Part needed - NLA from dealer

    I need to get two of the part #3 in this diagram.



    Part number is 52208153256. If anyone has a pair in good shape, let me know how much you would sell them for.

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    A bit more info on what they are. I might have them. I had a coupe and I don't recognize that part but I bought an entire interior from an M3 coupe last year and he reallly stripped it. I got every little piece there was.

    Also what kind of material is it? rubber, plastic, fiberboard, carpet?

    It is a plastic piece that snaps on to the top of each fold-down portion of the rear seat. Here are some pictures from ecstuning's web site.

    Ok I just looked and that piece is part of the seat. I have a set of rear fold down rear seats but I would have to take those pieces off and basically ruin the value of the seats.

    Can I talk you into buying a Dove Grey set of M3 rear fold down seats?

    It really is tempting, but then I would have to convert the fronts from black to Dove Grey. It really is a beautiful color to have, would have been my first choice, just didn't happen.

    My dealer will try to order 8 153 256, which still has a price. They should know the middle of next week. I'll let you know if we net anything

    If everyone tried to order a couple, BMW might think they have a hot item and order some more.

I put an e-mail in to Tischer to see if they have some, but haven't heard back. It's starting to look like dismantling shops will be the only avenue.

    If there are any positive developments, let me know.

    I am also in need of 2. The parts just start to fall to sticky little pieces. I do have a question about bmw parts. Now this is NLA, would they make another run for the parts later?

    It's 2018 and I can't find this part online anywhere. They all say it is no longer in production. S.O.L.

    1994 325ic,
    I haven't looked specifically for this part but Aliexpress sometimes has odd parts.
