Re: Sport Seat Hinge Covers

Hi JPS 635, I got the mats from this outfit, www.lloydmats.com I think they fit better than any other product I have purchased and are closer to OEM than others. I remember them being a little pricey but I was not unhappy with the end result. ---------------------------------------------------------...

Re: Electric Sport Seat Hinge Covers

Many thanks to JPS635 for link and JCS for the suggestion to use the German Wallothnesch website but after 2 orders from descriptions on the website, both covers turned out to be for manual M6 seats.

Hi Jay, Thank you very much but I'm afraid the manual seat hinge cover won't work...and I need an "outer right" not "outer left".

Rear Sun Screen Repair for 6 Series?

Anyone have a fix for broken loop tabs on each end of the rear pull-up sun screen? Hooks in roof are just fine, it's the 2 plastic tabs on the screen rod that bit the dust. Both at the same time....UV finally got to them. Info much appreciated since they don't make them anymore. Thanks, Max

Hi Mark, yes, I put some rubber restore on them and they are like new. They seem to fit all the way around and look to be sealed okay. Was fortunate to catch the corrosion before it did damage to them. They weren't adhered to the frame and no ripping occurred when I separated them. I could not belie...
