New badges all round
« on: April 23, 2018, 06:31:22 PM »
The wheels are currently in for refurb. To the bloke who did his own refurb. on here.👍. Post looked good. My position is different and its a hand in the pocket for £220. BMW grey.
Every Roundell is tatty as in group collection, wheels and body for the bin.
I am going to buy all new badges. Looking on ebay I cannot discern who is genuine or who is rubbish. if anyone can share some experiences I would be grateful.

Never really had any great luck with ebay badges, so now tend to work on the principle that if the first set lasted 10 years plus then it's worth paying a few extra quid and try for genuine.

i bought some in November 2017 on Ebay for £8.00
they are very good quality,  the seller now though is not on .
Id say if good feedback and selling lots of them then save some cash.
They have been through a bad winter here and daily salty air on them.

I doubt there are any genuine ones on eBay, I bought some last July and they’ve had it already but you can’t complain for 6 or 7 quid! Think I’ll get genuine ones next though

I bought mine of ebay around 4 years ago, they has the bmw logo and part number on the inside......I think I paid under £20.  Not sure if there real but still look brand new.

I will try and see if I can go back that far on my account

When you say a set, do you mean wheel set or bonnet and boot?

Thanks guys,
Your comments are very welcome and all interesting.
BMW Aberdeen have quoted £104 for Bonnet / Boot and wheels. It is my partners Birthday on May 01 so I have to be careful on the cost comparison. £15 v £104 will looks a bit like funny looks and a fight.   ;)
The issue with E-bay is the claim to OEM parts with packing having the part number on. I want the quality of the original.  I can see the conflicts from the members over quality.

Sorry i should have said it was a set of 4 for the wheels.
Alan I did not realise there was a forum discount. I think BMW Hereford is well worth a shout. How do you get forum discount.

I did it through another forum with a site sponsor.
Never looked if we have any on here.
I use this forum as well.

If you message cotswoldbmwmini on here and ask for a price they will message you back with a price and how to pay, once you’ve dealt with one of the sales guys and got his email address you can just email direct and they’ll put the 10% discount on, seems a lot of the time my local dealer can’t beat the price
