Thanks for the part# and the fast response! I will be stopping by the nearest BMW dealership sometime this weekend to pick up this part. Hopefully, they'll have it in stock.

By the way, along with my bmw/alpine cd changer (thanks to Fred Meloan and Quality Imports), I just received my 5-series key ring. I got two, an extra one for my spare key. It is very nice and sharp. A nice compliment to the bmw key. I highly recommend it. Here's a pic of it...hopefully it'll post.

: Michael,

: Here's what you need.
: Chrome + Black trim (non-sports E39 model)
: 51-11-8-226-559 Chrome strip
: 51-11-8-226-565 Black Rubber Strip
: *************************************
: E39 Sport model (no chrome strip, just black rubber strip)
: 51-11-8-174-850 (black rubber strip)

: Hope this helps.

: If all else fails, can't get the rights parts from your vendor. You can call Tom (Parts Dept.) @ Assael BMW 1800-655-4269 (626-358-4269), he went through the wrong parts combo and then made it right at the end. He'll know what's up and help you. I bugged him enough that I think he'll remember "Mark, Aspen Silver 5 series, replacement strip," in his dreams.

: Hope this helps,

: ///Marco
