Colour finish of rear bumper garnish Euro style

Post by 635csiSyd » Tue Jan 05, 2016 10:56 am

Hi All,
just refitting my car after a full respray original Artic Blau and whilst I'm not doing a trailer queen I'm refurbing or replacing as and when necessary and or available the poor old car was left sitting in the sun unloved for a number of years with resulting burning of paint, body molds, trim, bumper rubbers etc etc I have managed to source and replace front bumper rubbers , refurbed all the side body molds including the gutter rails just chasing a rear bumper rubber but can't seem to source the ribbed garnish that fits above the rear bumper http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showpar ... Id=51_0796 can anyone tell me what the orginal finish was, or is if they have an unburnt one, was it smooth and black similar to the side body molds or is it more a flat finish similar to the Mspec soft rear spoiler I have worked out a way to replicate both finishes with lots of rubbing and priming and rubbing but can't remember what they were like when new

Thanks if anyone can help

Mine is unpainted black plastic, with a semi-matte finish.

yes, I would say "satin" is a better description. It's not flat, and it's not shiny enough to show a reflection, so halfway in between. I didn't buy the parts new, but the previous owner did just before I purchased the car 18 months ago, so I'm sure it's in original condition.
