Are the gill and grill PNs the same for E90s? I thought the side gills were different between E90 and E92/3.

They look identical, just black-chromed, rather than chromed. Doubt they changed.

Here's the USD price, based on currency conversion using today's rates, in case anyone is interested.

Front Grill Left 51 13 7 979 349 RRP 52.00 M3Post Price 44.20 = 67.65 USD
Front Grill Right 51 13 7 979 350 RRP 52.00 M3Post Price 44.20 = 67.65 USD
Side Gill Left 51 13 7 979 351 RRP 66.42 M3Post Price 56.46 = 86.42 USD
Side Gill Right 51 13 7 979 352 RRP 66.42 M3Post Price 56.46 = 86.42 USD
Chrome Black Exhaust 18 10 7 842 862 RRP 19.22 M3Post Price 16.34 = 25.01 USD (you need 4 of these, 100.04 USD)

408.18 USD for all of of the parts.

Grills will fit on the E90 no problem, but the gills are different I'm afraid. I don't think BMW produced any E90 (or E93) versions of the Edition.

OK folks, sadly I have some bad news.

The supplier has looked into getting a hold of these in quantity and has advised me that its not going to be possible afterall. BMW UK are quite anal about VIN numbers and ordering parts against them and I'd literally need 20 odd VIN numbers to get these parts. I've got a call into the UK Marketing Director at BMW UK to see if there is someway to pull this off but based on previous experience I'm not holding much hope.

I spoke to two other dealers yesterday and they too gave the same feedback.

Apologies for the getting your hopes up chaps. I'll keep looking for a way to do this but in the meantime the Group buy is off.

Cheers,
Neil.

Exactly what happened with folks trying to get CSL parts. BMW protecting the exclusivity of those who actually order the car. I guess I can understand this for the CSL but for the "Edition", give me a break.

Ya, that sucks. I would have loved to get the front and side grills. Seems like some vendors could match this chrome color and sell a ton.
