Just curious...were the ends straightened before chroming, or was this piece never installed? (the end tabs that bend around the actual bumper). I have only seen them in used condition, with the bends already in place...de Q always has great items, by the way.
its a good + worthwhile idea. i have a NOS one (thanks deQ). i already sold my old one to a forum member. it is hard to find a decent used one and they can't be difficult to make. i think last price on one (that i saw) was $75 for a new one plus shipping. that's been a few years. face it, BMW has gone NLA on the entire rear bumper metal. yet another reason to use a 3rd brakelight (thanks Andrew - shameless plug for another NLA forum member made part)
