    That video is over a year old. Keep dreaming about them making parts...

            It kills me how BMW talks a good game about "Mobile Tradition" and support for classic BMWs. It's basically BS. It is getting to be extremely difficult to get parts for one of the most iconic of all BMWs ever made.

              I would expect Germany being one of the hardest hit countries in Europe with Covid has something to do with it. Shit isn't even close to normal. When we are talking about production shortages on tires, food, new cars, etc, I don't think fenders to fix 30 year old toys are a priority.

                E30M3 parts have been a nightmare to get since looooong before covid.

                  Oh I know, but BMW also didn't release info to the world about parts coming back into production. You can't even get floor mats these days, for any cars, or cars for that matter.

                    I’m not sure why BMW and some other OEs are not on the ball with this. There is big money to be made on dummies like us who want OE parts to keep our cars on the road. Porsche is out there developing sleek head units with modern functionality…

                    That said, Nissan is putting out new/old parts for the GTR, giving them a new part number under the Heritage program tag, and charging $450 for a rubber intake elbow. So… somewhere in the middle please?

                      I will say though, that I just resto-modded a '74 Datsun 260z, and there is basically nothing available from Nissan for them...it's all aftermarket. But it is a 50 year old car also....

                        while I love my 5 e30 m3, I'm buying older 911's.

                              biggest problem with these parts is that alot companies who have build that stuff in the 90s are no longer existent
                              or the tools/ molds are gone or broken or too old to get a good product out of it
                              So BMW must look around for new companies who would make these parts again, making new tools/molds etc.
                              And there is the problem, not much want do that work for such a "limited" production like 500pcs or less
                              If they would order a million or more like for a new car, then it is rentable for them.
                              A limited production is only rentable for them if the price would be very high , and that would kill the deal most time i think
