My Ride: 2004 325CiC
Looking for facelift Conv. parts (used/source for new)

Hi, I'm looking for the following parts for my 2004 325CiC (sports package).

What do you recommend as a good place to find them for a good price? Or maybe someone has them (in good condition) and wants to sell?

- Side turn signals (LED?, clear) (p/n 63 13 6 920 732 and 63 13 6 920 731)
- Harman-Kardon subwoofer (p/n 65 13 8 378 552)
- Shift knob (for automatic, black, leather) (p/n 25 16 7 533 347) or maybe one from a E90 fits?
- Storage tray door (lower, between A/C controls and shifter console) (p/n 51 16 8 268 891?) -> I'm actually only missing the chrome decoration on it, if someone has that...???
- Steering wheel (sport, round airbag, multifunction) (p/n 32 30 6 770 417 and 32 30 6 756 514)
- Chrome exhaust pipes (the ones that go over the originals, as the 330i has)

Also, the drivers side seat (sports seat, grey) is showing some damage (lower back area and left flank). What is the best way to repair it DIY? I did a search but there are many different opinions...

I have a sport steering wheel but I do not have an extra multifunction. Let me know. I have a thread in the "Interior" for sale section

@e46mook: I'm looking at them, I don't need the multifunction unit, just the steering wheel. Thanks.

@all: Any suggestions? Where do you guys buy that stuff?

I would use tischer (getbmwparts.com) if you want new parts. Otherwise you can check local European auto salvage yards, ebay, or hope it pops up in the for sale section here.

Just contact "Mike @ TheBMWPartStore" (a user here)!! Or go to their side if you want new parts!

I bought a lot of stuff from him during the last weeks!! The price is unbeatable and the service is awesome!!

Good prices and very fast delivery

As for repairing the seats, I have heard that leatherique is the best method. Check the DIYs for a guy that stripped the seats using a solvent rather than the sanding method suggested by leatherique...this maintains the OEM texture. I would link you to it but I can't remember it.

@Spansfelder: Thanks, will do. Hey, another German transplant! I'm from Düsseldorf, living in Miami since 2008.
