Some 99 and 00 mcoupes were delivered without some of the standard interior chome pieces such as the door handles, tip of the emergency brake and other items. Find the small spiral bound 00 mcoupe sales brochure by BMW (the one that features the black mcoupe). If you read it carefully including the footnotes it lists all of the standard items and itemizes the interior chrome pieces. After I showed this to my service rep he ordered and installed them on BMW's nickle . Good Luck.
BTW the parts themselves are cheap, the installation took quite awhile.

Ok so there are quirks in the coupes. My dealer so far has fixed the ones that bother me the most such as the rear hatch rattling and locking probelm, the false reading and fluctuating fuel gauge, the faded M emblems, the missing interior chrome pieces, The popping sway bars, and a few others that have been fixed for free. I wish the car was 100% without flaws like out toyota and honda second cars. But given the hand I was dealt and the fun I have with my mcoupe, I couldn't be happier with the service my dealer provides.

Today I noticed that when I pushed the alarm remote to unlock the doors and the hatch, the hatch refused to open when I pressed the button. It sounded as though it was trying to open, but it wouldn't. I had to use the key. I've read enough to know this is common; should I go to the dealer or is it something that is going to persist? Thanks.


What missing chrome pieces? I'd like to know what came "standard" on a 2000 M Coupe, if anything...


'00 M Coupe, Oxford Green/Black, with very little chrome...
