Eucalyptus Not Being Sold?

Sat Dec 22, 2018 10:55 am

Hello,

I ordered Eucalytus panels from BMW amd was told 24 hours later;

PARTS ARE NOT AVAILABLE FROM BMW NORTH AMERICA AT THIS TIME NO ETA - ORDER CANCELLED NO MONEY WAS COLLECTED TRANSACTION VOIDED

Can anyone help me source these things? I have tried both part numbers, new ans old.

The old one is depricated in dealer systems and the correct (current) part number for the three piece wood panel set is;

51459332448

Thank you!

FWIW, I've found that ECS Tuning's BMW parts listing on their site does not mean that they either stock it or can (or want to) get it. When talking to them once, they pretty much admitted that they input the full database of parts, but then didn't purge it of those that they decided to stock or are able to order.

Same answer from ECS, trying “Stratham BMW” now but I suspect they are all tapping into some dealer interface since all three online ordering systems are identical to the letter.

Very odd that those aren't available - you'd think that if not stocked in the US, they could easily be shipped over from Germany. You might try calling your local BMW dealer's parts department, and see if they can get an answer as to why they are not available, and if it is a change-over from one supplier to another, or some other temporary issue.

Straham BMW in NH got them for me and shipped them right away. Just popped them in and it looks like a different car. Wow!

I wonder if the dark brown wood from the i3s would become available?

That would be another wood option.

I just bought a CPO 2017 i3 with almost everything we wanted, but it was a Deka. Actually the interior was pretty nice but the dealer ordered and the LA warehouse delivered eucalyptus wood in 2 days for me to figure out how to install! That is planned for next weekend so if anyone has tried this I would love to hear about it. So: the parts were in stock and probably available in other parts of the country, but about $700. Kinda ouch.
