    Apologies if this has been covered. Longtime member but forum newbie unsure how to search forum content properly.
    I am hoping to find body trim parts for an '87 635CSi. I would very much appreciate source leads for vintage OEM parts. For example, is https://www.bmwmobiletradition-online.com/ a reliable vendor? Are there alternatives?

    Thanks for any guidance.

    Seems like a good idea but the site would not allow me to register as "United States of America" is not one of the allowable countries. Perhaps they will do business with me anyway?

    Should be able to since the classic certified dealers use a internal version of that site in the us to order parts.

    You can also use this dealer finder to locate a classic certified dealer that might be able to help.

    Actually if you go to realoem.com with your last 7 of your VIN you might be suprised to see what may be available from BMW. You could go to the bmw dealer with part numbers and be an informed buyer....However they have ability to access the Classic BMW part availability system. If you see the word "Ended" by the part number it may well be no longer available. Also finding a dealer that can perform a USA dealer search they could research for you. If you have a specific part not available through the new part system....Go to the appropriate forums and post a wanted to buy request.
