I don't want to prolong this ridiculous thread any longer but I will say this:
Paul has privately and publicly helped me with my car even when I don't buy my parts from him. Just knowing the man the little that I do assures me that his prices are fair.
He specializes in genuine factory-fresh BMW parts. Thats a far cry from rebuilt, rechromed, salvaged parts. For those that are building concours cars, its worth it to pay that for an original part. For those of us that are keeping drivers on the road, its probably not.
So buy your grilles from a salvage yard if you think the mobile tradition stuff is expensive. And in the meantime, read up before you flame. If you'd been tracking the board at all for the past few months, you'd have known what kind of a friend Paul is to the '02 community before your ill-advised post ever got to the submit button.
