    If you mean the plastic trim and rubber gasket under it that covers the whole handle I would get those from the dealer. I have bought several from ebay and they fit but they seem to be a lot thicker than the stock ones. In any case my door handle always seems to snag on the cover. Those parts aren't expensive.

    Heck I have been looking now for hour and can't even find this seal in Real OEM. I have found some seals on Amazon that have crap reviews, and a few threads here but none have a link to anything I can buy.
    This thread was interesting but old and no luck. https://www.bimmerforums.com/forum/s...+handle+rubber
    I'm going to hit up Google.de and find a forum there. The Germans must have these.

    Yes that is what I want but is there a difference between 2 door coupes/convertibles and the 4 dr models? Also out of curiosity, what is the p/n, I still do not see it on the realoem site. These things are on 4 cars I own but I can't see it on that site. Hilarious.

    There are no part numbers, because BMW only sells the covering front L+R and rear with the gasket. I sell the single gaskets only. Differences: Front right and left have one larger hole (each on different side, as you can see from the pic), rear gaskets have 2 smaller holes. My front door handle cover gaskets fit E36 l sedan, cabrio, Coupe, compact. Even in case of compacts where there is only one lock, you need the wider opening of the front door gasket. Rear door gaskets are same for both doors.
    Front door gaskets fit E36 sedan, cabrio, Coupe, compact, Z3, rear door gaskets fit E36, E34, E32. I sell them as 2-door kits or 4-door kits.

    Hi Shogun

    Sent you a PM but not sure if it went through? If not can you please send me a PM as I'm looking to buy some door handle gaskets for a Z3.

    Thanks

    Iím replacing the handle surrounds (including gasket) with these part numbers:

    51-21-1-938-285 front left
    51-21-1-938-285 front right
    51-22-1-938-280 rear left & right

    The part number for the seal around the key tumblr is 51-21-1-928-380.

    Everythingís available from FCPEuro and other channels.
