    Hi Guys,
    looking for the genuine BMW Sidler E9 left side turn signal lense (only amber plastic part), European version (as on photo below) - condition: very good, perfect or new; light surface scratches are acceptable, but no cracks.
    If you have a spare part, that you can sell - please PM me with photo's & price.
    Thank you!

    Hijack in progress... Did BMW put a seal between the plastic and metal base? Haven't found anything available..

    Yes, always. Without that seal water/moisture will come inside faster than someone can expect. Also there is a great risk of damaging/cracking lense while bolts tightening without that seal. I don't know if you know, but also little o-ring type rubber washers are needed under both lense tightening bolts.
    Early main seal was made from rubber, later from neoprene.

    Wladek have you seen a supplier for them? My sources are showing no part numbers...

    There is no part number.
    But i think it can be easily cut from 2-3mm sheet of neoprene/rubber just with paper knife; Originally it's flat so it's really not a problem.

    For the gasket between front turn signal and lens....

    YEARS ago I needed one and found an "O-RING" that would work pretty good.
    Bought them at GRAINGER and they have been in the car since.

    Try AS568A-252 and see how it fits. -251 is shorter, -253 is a bit longer.

    For the full meal deal on what I did - see a thread I started here a LONG time ago...
    https://e9coupe.com/forum/threads/some-tips.5350/

    Good luck

    Thanks Lip! That suggestion led me to McMaster where I found these flat orings that I'm going to try.

    Cool - that may work as well. The thing I liked about the round O-rings is that you didn't have to keep it 'straight' in the groove. It could rotate around a bit and you'd never know it.
    Either way - let us know how it works out. May have to upgrade my lights when I get the car back from SFDon's. :)
