So anyone have a pic of the exhaust tips? I have the grills and gills on the way... The exhaust tips are tempting, but there is just something about staring at 4 stainless tips.

Evan,

Given today's news that BMWNA dealers will no longer be carrying European parts, what does that mean for items like Edition exhaust tips, kidney grills, etc from Tischer?

I believe they are only for e92 fitment... they still "fit" e90's, but they are staggered (they stick out the bumper by about 3 inches ish I think since the coupe is about 3 inches longer than the e90).

Looking good there MaverickNemesis. I like your vanity tags too!


Cheers.

BTW, I ordered the gills a week or two ago from Tischer and still no word on them other than that the order is being processed.

E92 and E90 gills are different. They might have the satin chrome gills for the E90 but I'm not sure.

I might take you up on that offer if my status never changes from "on order" with Tischer...

The piece that is chrome/satin chrome or whatever will fit. The black plastic piece will not. You can separate the black piece if it is like the plain gills and it should fit. But, if it doesn't separate then no it won't work. AFAIK, there's no reason that the grills should not work.


Cheers.

I know, I know. Blame it on the volcano.

Thanks for the reply - i have seen a DIY of the E90 side gill and the chrome part definately separates from the plastic piece - i should have been more specific, my concern was that the chrome part was different in some way from E92 to E90....longer etc etc. If they are the same then i will order mine tommorrow

Yes they will fit the e90, you just have to leave some parts off that differ between the e90 and e92. This was confirmed by IND, Tischer, and a member here.

I sure hope BMW didn't block these parts, I've been waiting on mine.

Thank you for the pic Evan.

Did the same on 21 May, and received them 26 May. You're looking at 40.69euro ea for grills and 83.10euro ea for gills from the German BMW dealership. Also got the euro mirrors in at the same time (221.05euro ea).
