Anyone had success ordering the 10.25" screen from Ali Express (or anywhere) recently?

Thu Nov 05, 2020 6:32 am

Put an order in last week and it got refunded yesterday.

Now everywhere I search for Chimei Innolux 65509306743 it comes up empty.

Anyone have any leads?

Ali Express is funny in that there's a clock that begins running when you order, and Ali will process a refund almost automatically at the protest of the powerless seller, and neg the sellers account.

This happened to me once, and the item showed up on my mailbox a day or two after the refund was processed. Seller was pissed.

I'm guessing the seller doesn't have the screens in stock and/or is a middleman drop-shipping from a supplier's warehouse.

I've been in this position with bike pedals of a particular color -- a bunch of sellers listed them, but when contacted, didn't have that color and couldn't get them.

Have you contacted them to ask when they'll be available?

I don't see any for sale anywhere on Ali Express at some point. I'm hoping BMW didn't shut this down... :?

These screens were all genuine UA (unauthorized authentic) Grey market BMW product left over from before BMW started using a Japanese manufacturer.
The remaining supply from 2017 is most likely exhausted now which is why they aren't showing up anywhere except for extremely high prices.

Same issue with the BMW i Electronaught waterproof bags for the frunk, gone everywhere except 1 eBay seller who's store has been closed for a year and won't answer messages.
The official Key Fob protectors are gone too, they only original things I have been able to find are the special plant based cleaners for the i3 interiors called PureCARE made mostly for the Giga/Lodge & Tera/Suite interiors.
Good luck, it's frustrating that a lot of these items have been exhausted.

Hi folks! I know this thread isn't too old but thought I will check if anyone had any luck getting the 10.25" screens from aliexpress on anywhere else? I just got an i3 and first thing wanted to do was to change the 6.5 screen with the upgraded one but can't find any for sale (except the expensive ones).I do some on Aliexpress that are about 500 and look the same and say i3 but not sure if they fit i3 . Any luck?

I see this one for sale on Aliexpress and from the picture it seems like it is the same screen. Does anyone know?

Just type in "BM 9306743 " at Aliexpress and you will find a handful of seller for the display.

I don't know if it's the right one, but you can always ask the seller with you VIN. So far I found that the Ali sellers have pretty good customer support.

If they confirm that's the correct one and you get it and it's not working you can file a money back claim with Ali-express within 90 days.

Great! Thanks for the info. I haven’t made a purchase on Aliexpress before so wasn’t sure of their refund poilcy.

Great! Good to have a reassurance on "bestnavy" seller. I think he has it for $514 now. I plan to buy it from him as well.

How much did you get it for and is it as easy to install as some of the articles suggest? I am looking forward to this upgrade. Thanks!
